    THR Ow it hurts no more!

    Hi Layla and Crickethip, I have spoken to the surgical navigator for my os. She really didn’t seem concerned about the nosebleeds said I should see my primary care doctor. Unfortunately, my doctor has been out of town for a few weeks. She should be back in her office on Monday. Soooo, what...

    THR Ow it hurts no more!

    One month! Well, things are going great. Off walker after one week, off cane after second week. Finished physical therapy this week. No pain meds after first week. Saw Scooby-Doo on the ceiling in my bedroom....no more pain meds for me! The only thing I am still fighting is nosebleeds every...

    Well, the good news is I finally had a bm and my temperature is down to 99.9. So I think I am finally heading in the right direction.

    THR Ow it hurts no more!

    Okay, this is Saturday, I had my surgery on Monday and I still have not had a Bm. Not feeling as good today as I have been. Running a low grade fever and just in general...yucky. My husband has been so good to me. Right now he is washing the laundry and he fixed a wonderful breakfast with...

    THR Ow it hurts no more!

    So glad the surgery is over. Walked down the hall and did the steps this morning. Hopefully, will go home this afternoon. I started this earlier and I am home now . Doing okay, but lots of pain. I am in my recliner and had a pain pil so this might be a little jumbled. I do have a question...

    THR Ow it hurts no more!

    i will be at the hospital tomorrow, Monday, at 10:00 for a right hip replacement. Nervous, but looking forward to getting on with my life that does not include hip pain. My husband and I will be going to Argentina and Chile in January on a cruise and can’t wait to really be able to enjoy our...

    Thank you Layla for remembering my big day tomorrow. I arrive at the hospital at 10:00am. That won’t make my tummy happy—hope I won’t be too hungry :). We went to Florida last week and enjoyed a wonderful week with daughters and grandchildren at the beach. This way I only have one day too...

    Surgery around the corner

    Hi Chaotic, I totally understand where you are coming from thinking about do I really need to do this. I have the same thoughts and concerns about my doctor asking now, why are we doing this? Some days I feel good, then we have days like today with the pain in the groin, thigh and even the...

    THR Hip replacement after hip arthrosocpy

    Sorry, I didn’t see your question until today, Thursday, the 2nd. No, after several discussions with other doctors, they all said because of my age to go straight to the replacement. It really stinks. Two years ago I fell doing yoga and ended up having cervical fusion and then 2 shoulder...
