    Welcome to the healing side. I too have a small apartment in Staten Island NY. It’s a bit tight with the walker. They are giving me crutches too. Will see what’s easier once I get home.

    Great news. So happy it’s going well for you. I was just telling my sister that my surgeon must have gentle hands made out of gold because no pain. Also taking 5mg of oxy and don’t know if I even need it because no pain. But I’m not taking any chances. I had posterior and I just have some...

    Dr Della Valle came to see me twice after surgery. I was impressed. He has told me the found a tiny crack in my hip which they used screws to repair. This will mean I can only do 50 % weight bearing on my operated side. I guess pt will show me what he means tomorrow. Dr Della Valle told me to...

    Excellent the pain is manageable that’s what I like to hear I have no pain right now either. I hope this continues. I already told the nurse I want to stay ahead of the pain. She agrees. No swelling yet either. Will see how that works. Keep sharing I am enjoying your positive journey.

    Congratulations. Lunch and breakfast were missed for me. They gave me crackers and a ginger ale. I could really use some food. Lol I was just told they finally have a room for me. It’s been 6 hours. I can’t complain though. No pain so far. Hope that’s the case for you as well.

    In recovery for the past two hours. They gave me pain meds. I have the pump thing going. They gave me ice. So far tightness but no pain. Also I don’t think I have log leg. I’m happy about that.

    I had all my preop vitals checked everything is good. They stuck me four times trying to find a vein. I had a nurse in training. Lucky me. Finally found a vein. Now waiting to go into surgery

    I checked in at the hospital. I'm here way too early. I'm sitting in their family atrium facing the river. Very relaxing scene. I was just told I would be in this room till 8 am. Its 6:23 am. Good thing I brought my tablet.

    THR Finally On The Recovery Side

    I got my call from the hospital. I have to be there at 6:45 am for surgery at 9:45 am. I am surprisingly calm. I am not looking forward to recovery, though. I have to admit. I am just hoping the pain meds work right away. I am a big cry baby when it comes to pain. My hip is kind of...

    Things sound like they are going well, happy for you. Did they give you compression socks....I'm hoping not to get them. I read they aren't really necessary. I hope my recliner is comfy...haven't tried sleeping on It yet. Looking forward to following your recovery and comparing notes.
