    Revision THR Dislocation

    Hi KK: my name is Diana, otherwise known on BoneSmart as Newbie. I, too, had a revision done (LTHR) on April 1st of this year. At some point after the surgery, within a day and a half of the actual surgery, my hip became dislocated too. I just didn't know it until they tried to get me up and...

    Hello BoneSmart family- guess this is my last post on this website. I want to thank everyone profoundly for all the encouragement and support that I've been given. I am now pretty much walking without crutches through most of my day now, starting with about a one mile walk in the morning and...

    Had an amazing time at the pool! Oh boy oh boy oh boy oh boy, going to go everyday now:idea: The leg feels fine. I can tell that I worked it out because of the way my muscles feel, just know pain like I was getting when I was walking too much. Happy Days Are Here Again!

    OMGOSH, just finished reading the entire post from Zinfandel and I feel like the luckiest person in the world given my own situation. I will keep her in my prayers and hope that she finds a resolution to everything that is happening with her. I'm now heading to the :swim:for the first time since...

Keeping my leg up, reading a good book and sleeping a lot, it's a great day for me:snork: Yeah, is your sisters silver corn homegrown? It sounds like it is. There's nothing like fresh vegetables to make you never want to...

    @Mojo333 Oh yeah, I think it was CarrieMay60 that was a month ahead of me- Well, I've overdone it the last few days as I woke up this morning and my leg is hurting and sore and doesn't want to move. I think maybe I've been trying to walk too much without the crutch so I'll go back to the crutch...

    @Mojo333 I wanted to see how you are...I feel like I'm at probably 70% strength now...hard to tell since I've forgotten what it's like to be at 100% :whistle: I will be 3 months post-op as of July 1st. I think you are about a month ahead of me, right? Mojo, when did you stop using crutches all...

    @Carriemay60 I haven't heard from you for a while and was wondering how you were doing? You are such an inspiration to so many people on this website. I hope all is well, please tell me what's going on as I've checked your BS thread and all I can see is that it looks like you last posted a...

    @SE Florida So crazy proud of you, SE! Almost 4 months post-op... dear, how did you do it with everything that you do each day. I have dear friends in Kissimmee and I went to visit them about a week before my surgery. They live right on the lake, the name of the lake begins with a T and it's an...

    @Josephine: You really clarified that beautifully. Thank you. I believe my poor OS was more upset/confounded about this than I was, as I was on some pretty heavy pain medication then and on top of that got a shot of Dilaudid before he started pulling the hip back into place, ha! I can deal with...

    @SE Florida Hey there SE... thank you so much for your feedback and kind words yesterday. Today has gone significantly better and truly, I rarely find myself having days like I did yesterday. Since the surgery 11 weeks ago I've had maybe two or three days that were like yesterday. Today I got...

    @Layla: yes, we are supposed to have a beautiful weekend here in Charleston. I hope you have a great weekend as well. To be totally and wonderfully honest, I am pretty much pain free now, yeah!:spin: Yes the knee does ache but it never really hurts. I like your idea of taking shorter walks more...

    @SE Florida - Are you kidding me? If I get one half of that done in a day it's a great day! I didn't realize you also work full-time, good thing it's from home at least. I truly am agape that you do so much any given day. :wow: Truth be told SE, I haven't felt myself at all since the surgery. I...

    @SE Florida - yes, I've seen a lot of knee complaints as well in this forum. I'm so glad to hear that you are feeling back to normal energy-wise as you mentioned that your surgery was about a month before mine and, with the afternoon nap you are back to feeling somewhat physically normal. Tell...

    Hi BoneSmart family: I wanted to check in and touch base.:tada: I am now at about 2½ months post-op, unless I count by the exact days of 7 for each week, in which case I would be about 11 weeks post op, haha. I am now walking on one crutch and have been for the past 3 weeks. Additionally, I am...

    Yes thank you again and again and again and again BoneSmart family! Had a good weekend and I'm walking further and further everyday on one crutch. Indeed, today I started taking steps without any crutch at all, only did about 10 steps but taking it slowly so as not to mess up anything. One thing...
