    THR THR done on right hip, on to recovery!

    Hi @Layla and the rest of the BoneSmart community!, After having a bad accident, had surgery to try and fix that, and then had the hip replacement surgery 3 1/2 months after that, all that in a span of a little over 6 months, I think that I am doing as well as I could. I went back to work...

    THR Not sure if I overdid it

    Hi @WashingtonHiker - I had my surgery the exact same date you had yours, and I still feel that I’m not recovered completely. I have some pain when I bend to grab things, lower back pain and a general feeling of inflammation around my hip and leg. It is probably because I tried to do too much...

    THR Periprosthetic fracture and gluteal insertional tendinopathy

    @Jujubee50 - I felt a similar tearing sensation in my buttock about 2 1/2 weeks after surgery (had anterolateral approach on 7/16). I was just walking around the house without any assistive device, and I swear I heard a rip too! I felt some pain (not a whole lot, thank goodness), immediately...

    THR THR done on right hip, on to recovery!

    @Eman85 - I took your advice this morning of icing after just finished walking for 30 minutes inside the house; it feels really good :ice:. I also agree 100% with these healthcare decisions being driven by profits. By being part of this wonderful community, I have access to resources and first...

    THR THR done on right hip, on to recovery!

    Hello Bonesmart community! I stopped going to PT a little over 2 weeks ago. In one of my last PT sessions, the trainer had me doing straight leg raises with weight. I felt pain near my groin after doing 8 reps on the very first set. I stopped the set right there, and let the trainer know that I...

    THR Periprosthetic fracture and gluteal insertional tendinopathy

    @Jujubee50 - I had surgery 2 days after you (July 16 - anterolateral approach). I was able to transition to not needing any assistance to walk a little after 2 weeks, just felt sore after walking for 15-20 minutes inside the house. In one of my PT sessions, I did straight leg raises, first...

    THR THR done on right hip, on to recovery!

    Hello Bonesmart community, It’s been a little over 2 weeks after my surgery, and things are moving in the right direction. I am able to walk inside the house. Yesterday, I took 2 walks, 10 and 25 minutes. After the longer walk, I started getting some pain in my right buttock (not intense), and...

    THR THR done on right hip, on to recovery!

    I was actually surprised that he called me on Sunday morning to follow up with me. I feel that my OS is just a great human being that wants me to do well and have a nice recovery. I am very grateful to have found him after all the research that I conducted. I was willing to travel anywhere for...

    THR THR done on right hip, on to recovery!

    Good morning Bonesmart community! Here’s my latest update. I walked around the house yesterday with my walker, trying to concentrate on stepping heel-to-toe. I was feeling good and motivated, but in the end I think I over did it a little bit. I started to feel swollen and a little bit of pain...

    THR THR done on right hip, on to recovery!

    @Elf1, I took your advice and took the Oxycodone at the scheduled time. I gotta assume that once the nerve block is out of my system, the pain level is going to increase, so it is probably better to nip it at the bud. :thankyou:

    THR THR done on right hip, on to recovery!

    Hi Bonesmart folks! I got back home around 3:15pm, after about a 45 minute drive, so I was released around 2:30pm. Total time from surgery to release from surgery center about 6 hrs. The nurses mentioned that I could’ve been released earlier, had I gone to the bathroom earlier! Drive thru joint...

    THR THR done on right hip, on to recovery!

    Had my thr done about 4 hours ago. Surgeon went with an anterolateral approach, instead of a direct anterior one (removing hardware from previos hip pinning surgery and degree of hip fracture influenced his decision). No intraoperative complications, fractures, etc. Spinal anesthesia/sedation...

    Good morning and thank you @Layla! Less than 24 hours to go (surgery is at 7:30 am). I’ll create a new post-op thread once I get back home from the surgery. I’m anxious, but I am positive that everything will turn out just fine:prayer:.

    THR Having total hip replacement surgery in 8 days

    Hi @Jaycey, you’re 100% correct about the mind running wild and coming up with all these different scenarios, it can feel very exhausting. Thanks for the advice. I’m trying to stay busy with family, which is probably the best thing that I can do at this moment.

    THR Having total hip replacement surgery in 8 days

    Thank you for the encouraging words, @Eman85. I haven’t been able to put weight on my leg for a little over 3 months now, after being completely independent for 51 years. An accident can happen to anyone, at any time; that’s part of life, I guess. I have to stay positive, since this surgery...
