    Fractured Neck of Femur/Pinning Broken Neck of Femur

    Hello! Welcome to the forum! I broke my neck of femur in February of 2022 so more than a year ago. Actually 18 months ago and it was a very difficult time for me. I had lots of pain and muscle weakness. It took a very long time so patience is key. The bone healed pretty quickly as I was 54 at...

    THR right hip replacement problems

    This is beyond unacceptable! Sitting in your own urine and no pain meds??? I would definitely report him and the hospital or surgery center to the better business bureau!

    Hi @Klassy @myglasshalffull and @Mojo333! So good to hear from you all! I just got back a week ago from France. Was gone 9 weeks! Can’t believe it really! Hippie did fine all in all. Would get a bit sore here and there but nothing too bad. My friend I was staying with is a certified Pilates...

    Omg she’s so cute! I love her face. I wonder how big she will get? We saw a yellow lab the other day and he kept pawing me to pet him and when I got up I was covered in yellow dog hair. I wear black all the time lol and I had forgotten how much they shed. I bet Tula doesn’t shed? I’m so happy...

    Fractured Neck of Femur/Pinning Hip repair

    Hi @MJK! How are you doing? So glad you are not feeling too much pain. It seems you are resting and doing what your OS told you. I am sure the crutches are a bit of a pain but hopefully you will be able to put some weight on that leg. I have never stepped on my foot but even some minor missteps...

    THR Terrible muscle pains

    @YogaLesley I came back from the wedding in Canada and it took us 11 hours to drive back OMG. I was driving for about 3 hours of it though and laying in the back seat most of the time so I can imagine how uncomfortable you must have been after all that driving. I think you should absolutely do...

    Fractured Neck of Femur/Pinning Hip repair

    I’m sure you’re glad to be home! Do you have help at home with meals and everything? Do you have stairs? I’m still struggling with going up stairs. Down is ok. Glad your pain is being controlled. The non weight bearing is a bit of a pain but I guess forces you to stay put and heal. I had no...

    THR Day 12 post-op

    Hi and welcome to the forum. I had a skiing accident last February and had to have surgery for a broken femur and had 3 pins put in my hip to keep it from dislocating. The way my surgeon made it seem I was going to be totally back to normal within a few weeks. I felt I had been totally misled...

    THR Terrible muscle pains

    I can’t say I have experienced that. I’m glad you’re feeling better and being more active and generally feeling better. I know I also struggle a bit after doing exercises but I was told by my doctor that the bones like the muscles around them to be strong and supportive. So I’ve been doing some...

    THR I've made it to the other side!

    So glad to hear! I’m at the 7 month mark and still struggle from time to time. I think this takes a full year to heal completely so give yourself lots of time and be patient. You will have good days and great days and then some not so good days but you will get there!
