    THR Here we go again

    Hi, everyone! I hope you are all well. I backed away from the forum a couple of months ago because I was worried about my recovery and was having a hard time dealing with all the love and sympathy I was receiving on here. Weird, I know. Sorry about that. So, my right hip is doing pretty well. I...

    THR Here we go again

    Thanks, @Layla and @Mojo333 for your kind words. My hip seems to be doing very well. It is definitely recovering much quicker than my left hip did after surgery. I can get around the house on just one crutch now and I can even manage short distances without crutches, although it's a bit of a...

    THR Here we go again

    That's interesting about magnesium working as a laxative. I suppose I could cut out the senna and lactulose if that were the case for me! Sometimes I feel like just blowing my gluten free diet, having a chinese curry, and dealing with the constipation at the same time! Then I remember that...

    THR Here we go again

    Last night in bed, as well as feeling the electric shock pain in my left thigh, I also began to feel it in my right foot. I put off calling my GP until my daughter nagged me into it this afternoon. He called me back and chatted, said it sounds more like nerve pain than muscle pain, told me to...

    Thanks, @Jaycey. The link doesn't seem to work but I will certainly research magnesium.

    OK, that sounds promising, Josephine! I really hope that's all it is! Thanks again x

    THR Here we go again

    @Josephine - thank you for responding so quickly! I really appreciate your time. It doesn't feel like cramp, although perhaps cramp pain can come in various forms that I have never experienced. I used to have bad cramps before being diagnosed with coeliac disease. This feels like a major...

    THR Here we go again

    @Josephine - I have a concern that I hope you'll be able to help me with so I'll try to keep this concise yet comprehensive. Since a few days after surgery I've noticed numbness in my non-operative thigh. I can't tell for sure if it was there before and I just didn't notice it because of all...

    Day 9 I walked with just one crutch for the first time today. It wasn't planned, it wasn't easy, but I did it. I simply had to carry something and had no one to help so I did the best I could. However, I don't think I'll be trying that again before next week. Other than that, not much to...

    P.S. My pain lag has abated by the time I finished typing the above post:happydance:

    THR Scarab's Recovery Thread

    Scarab, I can relate to that hip and leg pain. A few days ago I started to have the same problem and it was then that I remembered I had experienced this with my previous THR. As I type this I'm lying in bed waiting for said pain to abate because I stupidly got behind with my meds and am now in...

    THR Here we go again

    Haha, Scarab, it's not nearly so strenuous as you might think! I mean picking up things with my grabber, rearranging drawers, etc. And, yes, all on my crutches. I was already on two crutches before my surgery so ditching them now would be nothing short of a miracle! Basically I'm talking about...

    Thanks, Jaycey. I'm not concerned at all about naps. It's just that I mentioned how difficult it is to fit them in at times and then some people didn't understand why three naps per day should be prescribed by my medics. All just information criss-crossing in the ether. No, I'm more than happy...

    Day 8 Thanks, friends. Yes, nausea is all-absorbing and I find it much harder to deal with than pain. It's seems to be much more difficult to distract yourself from it. However, the new meds are working wonders and I had a good night. I'm sure the thing of mandating three-hour naps is really...

    Day 7 Thanks, everyone. Unfortunately, after a good day yesterday and actually being able to eat a bit of normal food, I had another bad night last night and today has not been good. However, I phoned my GP and got some new meds so I am hopeful that I'll feel better soon. @Layla - thank you...

    THR Here we go again

    Day 6 Last night wasn't good. I had an 'upset stomach' for want of a worse description, and spent much of my time hopping in and out of bed to get to the toilet. Luckily I remembered I had some loperamide, so I took that, but it did take a while to work. However, because it interacts with...

    THR Scarab's Recovery Thread

    @Scarab - I completely know what you mean. It's horrible when things like that are hanging over you when really you should be concentrating on you. I hope you can get that cleared up over the next day or two and let your mind and body rest and recuperate.

    Scarab, I hope the R&E got you caught up with your pain. If so, now you can keep up the good work and try and stay ahead of it. Good luck!

    @SurreyGirl - the nice thing about best friends is that you can just ask them to go and they won't be offended. In fact, they'll usually know when enough is enough without having to be told.
