    THR On day 5 after THR, I found you. This is rough - thankful you're here.

    You dear, wonderful people - Jaycey, Dmcfad2, Eman85, Sashimu, BellaMac, Schaargi, JohnWilky - others. Once again, I have tears in my eyes of gratitude for you all and this forum. My husband was actually the one that said "hey, why don't you go on the Bonesmart forum and talk to them about how...

    THR On day 5 after THR, I found you. This is rough - thankful you're here.

    Hello dear Bonesmart forum! It's been 3 months and 20 days since that "big" event. There have been so many times I've wanted to come here and see if my progress is normal. But there's not much left of me after workday ends. Soon to be remedied as I'm going to retire from current position. Time...

    THR On day 5 after THR, I found you. This is rough - thankful you're here.

    @Schaargi - thank you! I miss yoga so much right now. I don't do anything extreme, but it's so balancing and keeps my body stretched. Always great endorphins after. I lost the ability to do moves like "reclined bound ankle pose" - basically lie on back and put soles of feet together. That's...

    THR chialiyu's recovery thread - 1/12 LTHR - Anterior Approach

    Hi @chialiyu ! Sounds like you are coming along. I'm nearly at the end of week 3. Wondering why you aren't taking any type of ibuprofen or anti-inflammatory? I was prescribed Meloxicam for first 15 days (a 24 hour anti-inflammatory). Then moved on to basic 200 mg. ibuprofen. Trying to take 400...

    Yay! Thanks for putting things back into perspective for me. I will bend again! @Celle - good info. I need to remember that. If am sore and limpy today. I feel like I had a little setback today, really worn out, things hurt that didn't hurt before. I guess it was a big day yesterday. On top of...

    THR On day 5 after THR, I found you. This is rough - thankful you're here.

    Today is day 15 post surgery. @FCBayern - thanks so much for the encouragement. :SUNsmile: Got "big, icky, bandage" off yesterday. Figured it would feel better, but it actually feels more delicate, fragile and sore. That's quite a big thing to get healed up I guess. That was a trip - car ride...

    So many wise and wonderful people here. It’s day 12 today. Since @Layla advised on making a nest of pillows, sleep has been good. :sleeep: Today, my self just on its own decided to scoot around the kitchen and small areas of the house with NO assistance - other than holding lightly to a...

    THR Best way to ice

    Hi Wiggle! You are my mirror hip surgery buddy. I had RTHR on same day as you. So glad you found this place too. Sorry you are having some issues. And thank GOODNESS you got the gel packs. Be sure you have a light cloth on them if you didn't get the kind with the cloth inserts. I got 2 of the...

    THR On day 5 after THR, I found you. This is rough - thankful you're here.

    @Merrytaylor - it doesn't sound strange to me at all. In fact it's the same with me. I'm a very sensitive person and in tune with my body. I can literally feel my body trying to assess what happened, it's throwing everything it has into healing the wounds, and now trying to figure out what to do...

    THR On day 5 after THR, I found you. This is rough - thankful you're here.

    Thanks for all the great pillow advice! @Layla, I went in before bed time and made a nest of pillows. It really did help. For some reason I had felt like I needed to keep my legs stiff and straight. Nervous about hurting anything I guess. I relaxed last night and nudged up against the pillows...

    THR On day 5 after THR, I found you. This is rough - thankful you're here.

    I'm going to make a pillow nest in my bed tonight. Looking forward to some comfort. I don't get bandage off for almost a week, plus still just not comfortable trying to lay on surgery side. Hoping pillows will give me some options. I welcome any other sleeping position suggestions from you wise...

    Again, you all lift my spirits like nothing else right now. I wish I could have taken more time off work, but it isn't possible. I don't have the PTO time. I kind of slipped this in an available time slot they had - to get it over with. And told very few people at work - we've been remote since...

    Day 8 was a better day. I am just so overwhelmed by the love and support here. It is truly a gift and answer to prayers. I just knew there had to people like you out there :) . It has changed things from seeming "really bad" to "having hope". @Merrytaylor and @Nchiodo and @Moreaumarc - thanks...

    You are all angels. :angel: Truly. It is good to be shedding tears of gratitude and love for such wonderful people. Thank you so much. Something unexpected that comes from this (no matter what my end result is), is a new understanding for what I could not understand before. I think of all the...

    I figured there had to be a place like BoneSmart.org. So thankful I found you today. Started the day off crying, and it went downhill from there. Then I found you, cried again. But knew I was ok and this was normal. I also learned how to elevate my leg. From you, not the vague, cookie cutter...
