    THR Hipster_Chics Wild Ride Round 2 Recovery: Superpath THR-L

    Hello all. First of all, my apologies for the delay in this post! I had my THR-L done by Dr Elvis Grandic, Boyton Beach FL on 8/18. I posted a quickie thread under the pre-op section, but in a nutshell, this surgery was a bit more challenging than my THR-R, which was done in 2014. You can read...

    A question about Aircast Cryo Cuff for the Hippies...

    I've been busy reading to get prepared for my upcoming R-THR, and trying to get well versed on the whole icing and elevation. I see several mentions about the Cryo cuff, but it appears that this is mostly recommended for those with TKR, and not really for THR. Am I correct here? Has anyone...

    I haven't been able to wear my high heels in two years and I'm wondering...is there anyone out there who was able to wear them after THR? Just some fleeting thoughts from a fashionista :)
