    THR Ow it hurts no more!

    Hi Layla and Crickethip, I have spoken to the surgical navigator for my os. She really didn’t seem concerned about the nosebleeds said I should see my primary care doctor. Unfortunately, my doctor has been out of town for a few weeks. She should be back in her office on Monday. Soooo, what...

    THR Ow it hurts no more!

    One month! Well, things are going great. Off walker after one week, off cane after second week. Finished physical therapy this week. No pain meds after first week. Saw Scooby-Doo on the ceiling in my bedroom....no more pain meds for me! The only thing I am still fighting is nosebleeds every...

    THR Ow it hurts no more!

    Well, the good news is I finally had a bm and my temperature is down to 99.9. So I think I am finally heading in the right direction.

    THR Ow it hurts no more!

    Okay, this is Saturday, I had my surgery on Monday and I still have not had a Bm. Not feeling as good today as I have been. Running a low grade fever and just in general...yucky. My husband has been so good to me. Right now he is washing the laundry and he fixed a wonderful breakfast with...

    THR Ow it hurts no more!

    So glad the surgery is over. Walked down the hall and did the steps this morning. Hopefully, will go home this afternoon. I started this earlier and I am home now . Doing okay, but lots of pain. I am in my recliner and had a pain pil so this might be a little jumbled. I do have a question...

    THR Ow it hurts no more!

    i will be at the hospital tomorrow, Monday, at 10:00 for a right hip replacement. Nervous, but looking forward to getting on with my life that does not include hip pain. My husband and I will be going to Argentina and Chile in January on a cruise and can’t wait to really be able to enjoy our...

    What to wear?

    Just saw the messages from SE Florida and Mojo. Thank you for the best wishes. Looking forward to not having hip pain. You all have been the best.

    What to wear?

    Thank you Layla for remembering my big day tomorrow. I arrive at the hospital at 10:00am. That won’t make my tummy happy—hope I won’t be too hungry :). We went to Florida last week and enjoyed a wonderful week with daughters and grandchildren at the beach. This way I only have one day too...

    Surgery around the corner

    Hi Chaotic, I totally understand where you are coming from thinking about do I really need to do this. I have the same thoughts and concerns about my doctor asking now, why are we doing this? Some days I feel good, then we have days like today with the pain in the groin, thigh and even the...

    THR Hip replacement after hip arthrosocpy

    Sorry, I didn’t see your question until today, Thursday, the 2nd. No, after several discussions with other doctors, they all said because of my age to go straight to the replacement. It really stinks. Two years ago I fell doing yoga and ended up having cervical fusion and then 2 shoulder...

    Thank you. How are you doing?

    What to wear?

    Wow, who would have thought...boxer briefs! Love that idea. I am going to check into the dressing stick. Now, that is neat. I do have another question. I have A dental appointment on May 16th for a cleaning. Is that date too close to my surgery on June 10, or does it matter?

    What to wear?

    Thank you all so much for the great suggestions. I did go out on Amazon and bought some cheap t-shirt dresses. I am really not a dress person, but I will give it a go. This forum has helped me out so much and has really helped to squelch my many fears. Thank you.

    What to wear?

    Hello, I have a probably really really silly question to ask. I will be having a right posterior thr on June 10 and I am trying to figure out what type of clothes would be the most comfortable after surgery. I normally live in shorts during the summer. Would they be an irritant on my...

    THR Hip replacement after hip arthrosocpy

    Hi, I too have a torn labrum and FAI and mild degeneration. My doctor said having a scope and Labrum repair would be a waste of time, most patients would end up having a hip replacement anyway. I am scheduled for right hip replacement on June 10. I do wish you the best.

    Hip Replacement due to torn labrum

    Thank you for the pep talk. Two years ago I fell doing yoga and ended up having a cervical fusion surgery and two shoulder surgeries. Now this. I am ready for the little cloud that is hanging over my head to turn into sunny skies. I know it will. I sure will try and not become a member...
