    [THR] Heal first, then exercise, then dance!

    @SurreyGirl , it was great to meet up with you. I'm squirreling away my air miles for another May trip next year, so we can plan another meetup. Except of course if I am recovering from surgery in May...that's if I wait until next spring for the op--so, no! better not book the op for...

    [THR] Heal first, then exercise, then dance!

    @SurreyGirl and @Barbaraj , I really appreciate your feedback; I know it's coming from a been-there-done-that place and it helps me pull back for a longer range view. "Noticing some aching" is exactly where I am now. It's a matter of reconciling 'some aching' with 'major surgery' I guess. It...

    [THR] Heal first, then exercise, then dance!

    @Layla , 'Plagued by the chatter' , nicely phrased! That internal chatter, just two days ago when I felt the long low hour-after-hour bass note of impending doom running down my left leg... the chatter was telling me ; "okay, that's it! On Monday book that appointment with your doctor and get...

    [THR] Heal first, then exercise, then dance!

    @Going4fun , you have nailed it. I'm glad to have your thoughts on this matter. I will respond at greater length later, as I have to run out the door for an event booked months ago. Is that cool or what? I am "running" out the door. So much better than "I have to hobble out the door now...

    [THR] Heal first, then exercise, then dance!

    @Layla , Three years ago The OASIS Clinic told me that my left hip was "moderately severe". I took a screen shot of the XRay, and posted it above on page 29 of this thread. They operated on the right hip--"severe"-- first. There was an assumption both would have to be done... kind of a "which...

    [THR] Heal first, then exercise, then dance!

    Hello dear @Layla , thanks for the kind enquiry. I am doing okay. To very briefly recap the past few months, I was sick in April, spent May getting back up to speed (but feeling rather weak and pathetic), June was better as I ramped up my activity more and more and became stronger, and here we...

    [THR] Heal first, then exercise, then dance!

    @Mojo333 and @Layla , I take photos with my iPhone, and then re-size them with a PaintShopPro program. I also adjust the image, tweaking contrast & saturation, and use filters to give them a more lustrous and painterly appearance.

    [THR] Heal first, then exercise, then dance!

    @Debru4 , I'm not sure exactly when I will return. I haven't booked a return flight yet. However I am meeting a Irish friend here on June 4th, so it will be after that I fly back to Canada. It also depends on circumstance here where I am staying. I am being a companion to my friend while a...

    [THR] Heal first, then exercise, then dance!

    Greetings @Alitm , @SurreyGirl , @Going4fun and other Hippie friends. Alitm, I am so sorry to hear about your case of shingles. A couple of years ago I went through that ( but no rash, so it was assumed to be zoster sine herpete (ZSH) ) and it was a killer. I was struck down at the family...

    [THR] Heal first, then exercise, then dance!

    Hello fellow Bone-smartie friends. I haven't been posting much, but I do try to keep up with the conversations, usually by way of my iPhone; the screen keyboard is so teensy that I can't face trying to type out any posts. However I'm on the 'big' laptop today, so thought I'd sail in with an...

    [THR] Heal first, then exercise, then dance!

    @Debru4 , re: Did the study show a correlation with drugs/medication/anesthesia and the brain fog? The article was mostly focused on "the feasibility of using an online assessment tool called the Cambridge Brain Sciences battery to detect cognitive problems in ICU patients". I didn't see...

    [THR] Heal first, then exercise, then dance!

    Yesterday's Globe & Mail newspaper --Saturday April 13th-- had an interesting article in the first section about brain fog. The title of the article is : Study highlights online tool that could help track progress of patients released from ICU, (a study by the University of Western Ontario's...

    @Debru4 , I will copy my post above, and respond on my own thread so I don't derail Alitm's thread. cheers, A

    [THR] Celebrating one at a time, encore!

    Hello @Alitm , I don't know if you read the Globe & Mail, but yesterday's paper --Saturday April 13th-- had an interesting article in the first section about brain fog. (I think it was you I was discussing brain fog with, but because of the brain fog, my memory may be messed up ;) Anyway, the...

    [THR] Heal first, then exercise, then dance!

    Another dancing thing I want to mention to @Going4fun : when you are out on the dance floor, make sure your shoes aren't sticking or grabbing the floor. Rubbery soles are notorious for this, and then there are some soles that are not too sticky, and seem 'maybe okay'; yet still put up...

    [THR] Heal first, then exercise, then dance!

    I've made some lifestyle changes as well. I'm sure that I'm not the only one here who gained weight before & after surgery. I think @SurreyGirl was also addressing this on her thread. When I was trying to get my blood pressure down and lose weight, I started looking at my habits. One thing...

    [THR] Heal first, then exercise, then dance!

    Thanks @Alitm for your reply. Good to see you back on the board. I have been checking in, trying to keep up with threads, and following a few new-comers. Compared to some poor souls, I have nothing to complain about with my recovering hip #1. As I no doubt mentioned upstream somewhere, I...

    [THR] Heal first, then exercise, then dance!

    @Debru4 , I suspect in my case I had some kind of congenital weakness in my hips. I suspected even when I was in my 20's that my hips would be the first part of me to go. And sure enough they are.

    [THR] Heal first, then exercise, then dance!

    Yikes, @SaraK , guess I will be keeping a close eye on the left hip. A few days ago returning home from the dancing evening, I was deciding on what month I should have the next THR (January 2020). That night I didn't know if I would be in bad pain, so kept the Tylonel 3's on hand on my...

    [THR] Heal first, then exercise, then dance!

    thank you @Josephine And I guess what I am wondering is, despite the fact that they are not current XRays, is whether the left one looks "moderately severe" as it was described to me at the time. And could it remain stable since those images were taken, or would the normal wear and tear mean...
