    THR tcdc135's Hip Recovery Thread

    Sorry Layla! I thought I posted a reply!? But I can’t find it! I did call my Dr and moved up my appt. I also requested an XRay. The xray showed my implant had dropped/shifted a tiny bit down further into my femur, but he said not uncommon and it appeared stable now. If I still had problems I was...

    tcdc135 - Got a new knee, need a new hip

    Just curious....and yes, I realize we are all different as are all replacements. But, in general if you have had a TKR and a THR, was the THR noticeably easier? Mentally, I am trying to get prepared for my upcoming THR. So tired of the pain, crutches and limitations already, and have 47 more...

    tcdc135 - Got a new knee, need a new hip

    Thanks Layla! I saw my surgeon much as I want to get this over with....I agree. For the best long term results I will wait the 90 days. He did say if the tramadol stops working and it becomes unbearable, call him and we will move it up. So for now I will continue the 15mg mobic in...

    tcdc135 - Got a new knee, need a new hip

    Thanks all for the support! I did fill the Rx for the tramadol. I can take 1 or 2 (50mg) every 6 hours with the extra strength tylenol. I started yesterday with 1 tramadol and 1 tylenol. I do think it helped take the edge off. I still use the crutch, but the deep "tooth ache" in my hip/femur...

    tcdc135 - Got a new knee, need a new hip

    So, the nurse called back this morning. The Dr is pretty set on the 90 days. I have an appt to “discuss” this next thurs. He offered me a Rx for tramadol. I know it is one of the least potent opioids, but I usually get so sick when taking them! I know I could use an anti nausea drug as well....I...

    TKR Terry's knee story

    @TerryKnee this is just my experience, and all knees are different. I am 1 month ahead of you in this journey. But as an athlete, sometimes our brains tell us that if we want to accomplish a goal, we should work hard at it and push ourselves and we will get there sooner. NOT TRUE with a new...
