    THR LTHR next Tuesday

    Wishing you a successful surgery and a smooth pain controlled recovery. I was also nervous before each subsequent surgery but at the same time calmer because I knew more each time what to expect at home and in the hospital. I hope your night is peaceful.

    TKR Scheduled for Dec. 14

    I found that sharing my recovery here and also reading and sharing the other recoveries was very helpful. This was especially helpful for my first knee replacement as I was totally new to major surgery and the recovery process. The recovery became a shared journey with others understanding the...

    THR Thanksgiving Hip

    The hip recovery is much easier than the knee and my knee recoveries were excellent with no major issues. I found the hips hurt a lot more before the surgery than after the surgery. As with the knees, lots of icing and elevation will keep swelling down and help with recovery. A slow and...

    THR Aquatic therapy

    My OS and his office obtained all the pre approvals from my insurance for all my replacements. As far as pool therapy: I did official pool therapy with a therapist with my first hip before it was diagnosed and even though being in the water felt great it did not help with the hip pain till it...

    THR Advice Welcome

    I am sorry your joints are not being cooperative and ganging up on you. The hip recovery is easier than the knee so hopefully will not add to your shoulder issues. Sleep deprivation makes life more difficult of course and I did suffer from that before my hip replacements as I could not find...

    THR Wow! Becoming Bionic 11/19/2020

    I have actually regained nature and joy with my joint replacements. They allow me to go hiking around my fields and go bike riding on some rail to trail paths and enjoy it. Recovery is temporary but leads to good things. I did feel some grief at losing a body part with my first joint...
