    @Me2 Sheryl, Nah.... The second hip is not yet forgotten. I still have electrical shocks at random times and pins/needles when i apply pressure to the area below the incision down to about a couple inches above the knee. I had this for several months on the first hip, and then it went away; I...

    [THR] My second hip.... Dilly Dilly!

    Hi @Lmflora Lynn, yes I remember you! I guess we are on the same schedule. I'm doing well, all in all. Had a hamstring pull on other leg; that was slow to recover from. One quirky thing: I still have some electrical twinges or pins/needles on the new hip side at 6.5 months. I hope that goes...

    All is well and good now... Still waiting on last remnant of scab to go away so I can go to the pool for Memorial Day. Hope everyone is doing well and happy!

    [THR] Me2 and Recovery

    @Me2 Hi Sheryl, just saw this.... Hope your lumbar injection and PT helps! I go back to work next week after Memorial Day. Not looking forward to it..... I liked not having to worry about a schedule and getting things done. Best!

    [THR] My second hip.... Dilly Dilly!

    Thanks for the good wishes, @Layla ! All in all, I am doing very well, with much faster recovery than Hip One. I still have some discomfort in the area about an inch above the knee, to the bottom of the incision; but its all on the non-groin side of the incision. The incision itself doesn't...

    [THR] Frustrated

    Hi @anny ! For the bathroom, you can call a plumber and have them install a handicapped bar. I did that for my first hip four years ago; its still there, of course; and I am glad I have it. Its a standard ADA handicapped bar.

    [THR] My second hip.... Dilly Dilly!

    Hi @MyJampa ! Another dog name... :dogwalk: I'm glad you switched your antibiotic away from levaquin; and the new one sounds like the right fit. It's cold here in Virginia (again) after an 80 degree Friday. Saw some snowflakes, but nothing like what I have been hearing about like your record...

    [THR] My second hip.... Dilly Dilly!

    Hi @Layla Thanks for checking in with me. My 2 week checkup went well; PA said I am doing 'fantastic'. :happydance: I am no longer using the cane. Yesterday, I walked two 1.25 mile walks; without the cane this time. Iced upon return. All in all, doing just great! I hope everyone is doing...

    Hi @waterman1 Great to hear from you again! Yes I remember you and our chats! Glad you are doing so well. I am going for my two week checkup tomorrow; I walked two miles today! It was split up into two walks though. :friends:

    [THR] My second hip.... Dilly Dilly!

    @MyJampa : Hi there! Yes, Major and Heidi are weims. You look like you have poodles. Dog people are good people. :dogsniff: So are cat people. LOL :kitty: About Levaquin, it had always worked well for me in the past when I would get bronchitis. It did effect my father negatively, though...

    [THR] My second hip.... Dilly Dilly!

    Having a good day today! (day 4 without narcotics). I am back to using the ice, and did notice this morning that my operated leg is getting closer in size to the other one. I went for an outdoor walk a few minutes ago, down the street to the cul-de-sac and back; maybe 500 steps. Feel good...

    [THR] My second hip.... Dilly Dilly!

    I have been off oxycodone for 48 hours plus..... Last night into right now I have the experience of 'I cannot get warm no matter how many things I cover myself with". I think this may be something like light withdrawal symptoms? I am taking 6 500 mg tylenol per day and it seems to be ok in that...

    [THR] Joint Replacement #3 -- Getting Discouraged<

    Hi @Figment826 and welcome here! I, too had log leg. You can use a strethchy theraband to help raise and lower the leg into bed. On your question about work time off.... My corporation had a special form for the surgeon to fill out, and he specified 'up to 12 weeks' off. Much to my surprise, my...

    [THR] My second hip.... Dilly Dilly!

    Hi @Layla Happy Friday! Lots of progress and changes..... 1) The home nurse removed my dressing on Tuesday, and with that, I had my first nice hot shower. Delightful! Still has lots of glue/tape to wear through, and eventually get removed on first followup visit with PA on 4-13. Friday the...

    [THR] My second hip.... Dilly Dilly!

    After more pain, the stretching out of the time between pills shall go back to 5 hours (and with food). I also added a Benedryl due to itching just about everywhere. :unsure:
