    THR 7 days post-op RTHR

    I'm doing pretty good. Right leg is an inch shorter than my left now. Had to order a lift for my right shoe. They just came in today, so I will try it out later.

    Yeah, I fell on both knees and drove the implant deeper into my femur and broke it, so they had to put a new stem in, a plate to reinforce the femur, and hardware to stabilize the break.

    It has now been 6 weeks and 5 days since my last surgery. Had my 6 week appointment and was approved to start bearing weight as tolerated. Therapy starts this week. They will be coming to the house to start. Still having trouble sleeping but I'm sure it will get better. Slow but sure wins...

    Hi everyone! It has been 4 weeks and 4 days since my last surgery. Here is a picture of the scar on my knee, the next will be further up my thigh. I have more but they are in more delicate areas ( not for public view). Lol! Let me know what you think.

    Well kids I am home again. Got home Friday afternoon. Got all my adaptive aids, toilet seat riser, shower bench versus a chair and a tray for my walker. Still have 4 weeks of no weight bearing on the right leg. I have rented a hospital bed for the next month since my bed is way to high for...

    Isn't it amazing how thrilling such a minor thing is? I am so grateful to be able to get up in the middle of the night and just go.

    Hi guys! Just checking in. Been in the rehab facility for 5 days now. Doing pretty well. Might actually earn the privilege to go to the bathroom by myself. All my bed and chair alarms are turned off. Feeling pretty good today. Had therapy already today. Just had my sponge bath with OT...

    One is of the fracture repair and one is down by the knee. Pretty long plate reinforcing my femur.

    Was a little scared to lose the catheter, will just have to monitor my water intake. Moving around is tough with only one leg.

    They are managing the pain well. Norco is good. Up sitting in the chair and going to be using the bedside commode. Hoping to move to rehab next week. Waiting on insurance to approve.

    Well guys and girls. I made it through my second surgery. I have a new stem implant, rod reinforcing my femur and the fracture repair. Surgery got done late Thursday, early Friday. I have 5 or 6 incisions. Right leg is touch only, no weight bearing. I was up once yesterday. Surprising how...

    Thanks everyone. Pain meds are good and they are taking good care of me. No walking or even getting out of bed. Kind of sucks to spend the 4th like this but what can I do?

    Well guys, I did it. I fell and broke the femur where the implant is. I'm now laying in the hospital waiting for surgery tomorrow. This totally sucks!

    Well all, things are going ok after my last melt down. Scared myself today getting in the shower. Stepped wrong and it felt like something happened. Not sure what exactly, but it hurt like the Dickens. All is good now, but it did scare me. Still using the walker but hopefully I can try the...

    Much better day/night yesterday. The Tizanidine has helped with the muscle spasms and the Norco and ibuprofen have helped with the rest of the pain. Sorry for all the negative Nancy posts. I promise I will keep them nice. I was at wits end Monday night. I was getting ready to go to the ER...

    I'm ready to give up. It has been almost 4 weeks and I sleep less than I did before the surgery, I can't sit in my recliner without severe muscle spasms. I give. I wish I had never done this.

    @DA32561 and @Spex10 thanks for the kind thoughts. I've always been one who heals fast. This has been 10 times worse than both of my rotator cuff repairs. I talked to my doctor's office this morning and they put me back on the Tizanidine for muscle spasms and probably put me back on Norco...

    I don't think I have ever been this miserable. I thought having a bad hip was bad, hopefully I turn a corner soon or I'm going to believe this surgery wasn't worth it. Trying to stay positive but it is hard at 1:00 in the morning.
