    @JoeKnows good to hear from an other five monther. Yeah I get weird pains out of nowhere still, but I remember that happened on my first one. But the nausea... never got that bad. Sounds like time has passed since the pain - @Layla offers good advice as always... check it out with the surgeon...

    @Mojo333 "I was going to take an Amazon box to my surgery and tell them I bought some used parts on line...so they could charge me labor.." That is HILARIOUS. Great way to save money. T shirt: $20 on Amazon. Search for THR aftermarket parts t-shirt.

    Photo from the first week... one of the dogs decided to become a service dog. Or at least her version of a service dog. She mostly parked herself in front of me so I wouldn't move.

    Thanks @Mojo333. The difference is incredible. Being pain free actually was fun to get used to... had to consciously walk normally. A side benefit is that I can walk with better posture now. And can sit on whatever seat i want to. And don't have to turn on the car seat heater when on a long...

    Hi gang! I hit the 4 month recovery point a couple of days ago. Feeling fantastic. Working out every two days. Hope everyone has as great a recovery too. Good luck to all who are going under the knife.

    It was great to chill yesterday. Ready for this morning's teaching session. Then off to our company to rest in one of the patient therapy lounge chairs.

    Today I'm resting on the couch watching videos and reading some work emails. I had planned to work from home...but still need sleep it seems. Here's something cool...when I got up at 8am to use the bathroom I was wobbly with the cane. Slept 3 more hours and was stable. Resting works!

    Pooped. Spent much of the morning meeting with my biz partner and generally catching up. Mobility was reasonably good with cane. Started to get tired at 11:30 am even though the meeting only started at 9:45. Went home at noon, had friends drop in for a couple of hours. It's now 3:30 and I just...

    [THR] Are We There Yet?

    I have just finished week 3. You know what I find odd... I will suddenly need to nap during the day for an hour or so. Doesn't affect my night time sleep. I guess it is the body using energy to heal...

    Had some fun yesterday. My son took me into the city to just get away after almost 3 weeks at home. We went out to dinner - felt odd a bit pushing my walker around - but was a great meal. Boring? Yep. but not to me.

    I'm a dodo. I told the college where I teach part time that I will be there next Tuesday (exactly at the 3 week mark). My boss says, so the week after Canadian Thanksgiving. I say yeah. Canadian Thanksgiving is another week out on the weekend of Oct 7t. I really feel ready to teach in a few days...

    Awesome note @Violin57. Glad you are doing well! When a surgeon calls it barbaric surgery you know it's pretty serious.

    @Barbaraj Just curious as to what ithe removed part looks like, in my mind I see it as a pristine hunk of white bone. Maybe it's best to just keep that imagery.
