    THR Dorothy's 2nd hip recovery, June 22, 2012

    Hi Dorothy! So glad to read that you got the second hip done and that you are doing so well now! Sorry about the insurance troubles. You would think that they'd want to approve the visits now so as to prevent any issues down the line that might end up costing them more.

    Bilateral THR My New Hips Are Here

    Thank you everyone for the ideas. I returned to the office this past Monday without a cane but only because I just ordered a folding one as my old cane seems too "bulky" to carry around when I really don't use it. I was tempted to take Cardie's advice a step further and search for canes with...

    THR Anniepops THR Recovery

    Re: Hiya newbie here. Annie, does it feel like you're not strong enough to sit up at 90 degrees or that your hip is too tight to sit at 90 degrees? I had an issue similar to this where for the first few weeks after surgery, if I was sitting in a chair I could not bring my torso further forward...

    THR New hip 3/7/12

    Rider1960, Dorothy, back home finally!!!! (the long version!)

    Dorothy, after my friend had her baby she also ended up with a bump at the epidural injection site. Her doctor told her that it was just a hematoma due to a blood vessel being cut when the needle went in. Hers did go away after a week or so if yours is the same issue, you should be fine...

    THR HomeschoolingMom's thread

    HomeschoolingMom, you may very well end up being able to tie your shoes in that position somewhere down the line. I'm approaching 3 months since my surgery and I am getting back range of motion that I haven't had in years. Being patient (or trying at least) and staying consistent with my PT has...

    Re: THR 7 1/2 weeks ago, fractured femur during operation - doing well Hi Cyphi! Congratulations on your new hip :thumb:. I'm so sorry to hear about the fracture but there are a few members who had fractures during surgery and they ended up having great recoveries. I bet the same will happen...

    THR SW Coast Path here I come! Welshjane's post-op thread

    Jane, congrats on getting hip #2 done! You sound like you are doing very well. Like Dorothy, I mainly iced the area around the incision. Perhaps you can try wrapping a large towel around your thigh to help keep the frozen peas in place?

    Propofol concerns - my meds - Jo are you there ?

    Rich, I agree with Jamie. Use your time and energy to concentrate on yourself and having a good surgical experience (which you WILL). If someone can't be supportive and is actually trying to make things worse, there is no room for them.
