    I'm glad I had the surgery, too. Riding a bike is such an enjoyable activity.

    [THR] Yippie Yippie.. Double Hippie!! (CricketHip)

    Hi @CricketHip, So sorry to hear about your wallet. That's funny that it happens often to "middle aged women". That's too bad that you had a bit of a setback. I'm sure you will heal. Sometimes when we are stressed we are more vulnerable to pain. It sounds like you are healing very well...

    [THR] Fairydell's recovery thread

    Hi @Fairydell, I'm so excited for you. You sound so much more like your old self again. I would wait on the hula hoop, if I were you. I didn't do certain things, (like Pilates,) until a year after my surgery. There's so much going on with this healing, and your nerve damage was very extreme...

    My surgeon's asst. recommended the bike. I just rode ten miles at the beach yesterday. I remember not being able to get on my bike anymore before having THR surgery. I thought I'd never ride again. It's such a great way to work your heart, be outside, and stay happy.

    [REVISION THR] 55 male cyclist 2019 October Revision THR

    Hi @Corey W, I am also an avid cyclist who has had both hips replaced. (I had mine done at the same time.) I am riding my bike every day, and loving it. We have a lot of excellent trails here in Santa Clarita, and I also ride along the beach in Santa Monica and Venice. I can't remember when I...

    [THR] Yippie Yippie.. Double Hippie!! (CricketHip)

    You sound great, @CricketHip. I'm happy to hear that your recovery is going so well. I was on Oxy and Tramadol after my surgery. It's interesting to hear your take on the meds. I didn't feel anything from the Tramadol, but took it just in case it was working and I didn't notice. The Oxy gave me...

    [THR] Yippie Yippie.. Double Hippie!! (CricketHip)

    Hi @CricketHip! Just wanted to say hello and congratulations on your second hip. I had an intense night sweat on the first or second night after my surgery, too. I thought it was from the trauma and the medications. I was on Oxycodone. (Percoset) It's so much stress on the body. I didn't get...

    [THR] Fairydell's recovery thread

    Hi @Fairydell, It sounds like the sleeping pill helped. I'm so glad that you are starting to feel stronger. This is a very long recovery, but you are doing so well. I hope that the nerve improves.

    [BILATERAL THRs] Yogi recovery from BTHR.....

    I had the saddlebags, too. It was swelling, and it went away. I did have it a month after surgery, though. I remember women staring at it at the gym. It sounds like you are under-medicated. That percoset was such a miracle pill for me, but I don't think they prescribe it where you are. Have...

    [BILATERAL THRs] Yogi recovery from BTHR.....

    Hi @Yogigirl, I had bilateral surgery, too. I also do yoga. I'm so glad that you said no to those leg raises. That is crazy. I didn't do them and my hamstrings are very flexible now. I am even able to do the Bikram series, (carefully.) at home. I was on percoset and tramadol. The percoset...

    What an excellent recovery you are having. That's wonderful. All of that sleep so soon is incredible!

    [THR] post op blues

    I remember feeling like there's no way I would have been able to go back to work after my surgery. My surgeon said I'd need six weeks, but at that point I was still sleeping, recovering, and resting most of the day. It was a challenge just to cook, clean, take care of the yard, and walk the dog...

    [BILATERAL THRs] Jwadds Recovery (2 hip to be square!)

    It sounds like you are getting stronger. I made a lot of sandwiches the first month. I felt the same way about the nursing home facility. Von's delivers. Keep up the great work.

    [THR] Fairydell's recovery thread

    I feel so badly for encouraging you to get the surgery. You are in my prayers. I hope you got some sleep. I'm so sorry that this has happened. I hope that time will heal it. I guess the new meds aren't doing the trick.

    [BILATERAL THRs] Jwadds Recovery (2 hip to be square!)

    I had bilateral surgery and was also on my own to recover. At first I felt fine as long as I laid very still. I found that the PT's were too pushy and in way too much of a hurry. It really hurt me to walk for the first few days. I was okay with the exercises, but I chose to do the lowest number...

    [THR] Fairydell's recovery thread

    Sometimes the hypersensitivity is related to inflammation. I was that way before the surgery. Being upset seems to heighten it. My German Shepherds experienced it when they had arthritis, too.

    [THR] Fairydell's recovery thread

    Oh dear. Thank God your weren't hurt on that fall. I had a walker and it prevented me from falling a couple of times. You made me laugh describing Tony sleeping on the other couch. Too funny. Maybe he misses you. I hope you see your OS, because this sounds serious to me. Sorry to hear you are...

    [THR] Fairydell's recovery thread

    Glad to hear you are feeling a little better today. Prunes worked for me. The pain is worse at night, like an infection. Some people take a sleeping pill, and that really helps them. I sat out in nature, too, and it really seemed to calm me and provide healing from the environment. My dad...

    Wishing you well on Monday, tax day. I had bilateral surgery, too. I am so glad I had them done together. You will be great...

    [THR] Fairydell's recovery thread

    Night were much worse for me. It's so important to stay ahead of the pain. I used to wake up when I needed a painkiller, and then have to ice for about a half hour. Usually people see a big difference after the first month. I think it's good to have a good cry. It releases negative energy...
