    [THR] LoneStrHip's Recovery Thread

    Y'all I am frustrated and wanting to quit PT. I won't, of course....I'm a rule follower - but I want to. I'm 3 weeks post op, THR, anterior approach and this is my third week of physical therapy 3x a week. Monday I had a new therapist who worked my tail off! I understand the need to progress...

    [THR] LoneStrHip's Recovery Thread

    Thank you for letting me know about the move of the post, I was kind of prepared for that to happen, thank you for redirecting me. I'm glad you appreciate the inspiration and I also think I connected with the Bone Smart Twitter account last night. How great is this time we live in to connect...

    [THR] LoneStrHip's Recovery Thread

    I am a Social Media nut. I enjoy most available SM outlets and have numerous accounts, Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, Snapchat, etc., sometimes to the chagrin of my 20 year old child's eyeroll. Yesterday I was posting of my Physical Therapy update on Instagram and used a hashtags...

    [THR] LoneStrHip's Recovery Thread

    That's a great idea to get up and march in place! I'm taking short walks and then I plop for the rest of the day usually in the afternoons. I'm setting alarms for pain meds so I don't miss a dose in these early weeks. I'm grabbing that cooler now!

    [THR] LoneStrHip's Recovery Thread

    I wish I was a napper! I can rest but sleeping during the day is elusive. Yes, anterior here one week ago and I'm finding that every day there is more improvement. Thank you so much for your support and I'm going to keep using my pillows the way I have been, they have made resting so wonderful.

    [THR] LoneStrHip's Recovery Thread

    Your reply is music to my ears! I haven't been able to sleep for hours without pain in years so to have five hours of straight sleep and wake up so refreshed feels like a guilty pleasure with the pillow beneath my knees. I can do short times on my non surgical side with the pillow and that is...

    [THR] LoneStrHip's Recovery Thread

    Hey Y'all! I'm Wendi. I'm 48 and just had my right hip totally replaced anterior. Advanced arthritis and bone spurs had ground my life to a halt and I'm so excited to live again. Today marks a week since surgery. My Pico pump device is about to die and I'm instructed to tie it off and cut...

    Depression/post-op blues - open for all

    You just read my mind and wrote out everything that I was thinking. Why do so many people rock it right out of the gate? I saw a video this morning of a man on day 4 strutting up stairs! Like nothing! I can barely pull my sore and swollen leg into the bed without crying.

    [THR] Surgery done July 29

    You're one day ahead of me and I'm glad to hear that I'm not alone in day 3-4 being the worst, and the in & out of the bed being such a tough thing to navigate. I'm so swollen too, and stiff. My PICO bandage is pulling the skin and doing it's job but the swelling and tenderness make even the...

    Depression/post-op blues - open for all

    Weeping as I read this thread opener. It's day 3 post op and I just spilled a full cup of coffee on my bedroom carpet trying to take my morning meds. Then I screamed at it, and then cried like someone just shot my dog named Old Yeller. Today is my first day alone - my adult daughter lives...
