    Looking forward to the options of dining out when in the mood or taking a trip if the desire strikes. We are actually not planning anything for this year 2021 but really hoping for a nice trip in 2022. Hoping things will settle into a better new normal for it to be possible but will see how...

    THR LTHR next Tuesday

    Wishing you a successful surgery and a smooth pain controlled recovery. I was also nervous before each subsequent surgery but at the same time calmer because I knew more each time what to expect at home and in the hospital. I hope your night is peaceful.

    TKR Scheduled for Dec. 14

    I found that sharing my recovery here and also reading and sharing the other recoveries was very helpful.

    THR Thanksgiving Hip

    The hip recovery is much easier than the knee and my knee recoveries were excellent with no major issues. I found the hips hurt a lot more before the surgery than after the surgery. As with the knees, lots of icing and elevation will keep swelling down and help with recovery. A slow and...

    THR Aquatic therapy

    My OS and his office obtained all the pre approvals from my insurance for all my replacements.
