It is quite a difference but each step takes you closer to a complete recovery, slow and steady. :kitty:

@clodaghcov what supplements do you recommend?
Hi, @Corey W. Sorry you are having a bit of a different recovery than you intended, but you've got the right attitude going and it is very early yet. I hope that slowing down a bit will help things settle.

I must ask that you not solicit input like this from other members. We don't allow members to advise other members like this as it is considered to be "medical advice." Members can talk about things that work for them, of course. But what is appropriate for one member - even supplements - could be harmful for another. As Jaycey said, if you are interested in trying some supplements, you need to talk that over with your GP or your surgeon.

Right :) I knew that part, just wondering if there was data to indicate "goodness" factor wrt the use of supplements?

I haven't seen any analysis in my reading thus far - at least at it relates to joint replacement - assuming one's diet is reasonably normal.

Oh boy! Didn’t mean to alarm y’all. In all honesty I believe that whole natural raw foods provide everything I need. I’ve tried many supplements in the past, but my green smoothies are easily all I need. I should not have engaged that thread— my bad.

It’s not hard to imagine that you make careful food choices, @Corey W I never needed any supplements to recover from any of my surgeries. Just wholesome good food choices, and I heal just fine. I expect hip surgery to be the same.

1 week update
-All blood cultures came back negative this week! This is amazing news and an answered prayer. I’ll keep the IV for 5 more weeks and have learned how to give myself injections so I’ll only see a nurse 1 x a week for blood tests instead of every day. Infection free 4 me!!

-hip pain...was able to break free of narcotics yesterday at noon. The throbbing burning pain of surgery was gone:yes!:. I moved to Ibuprofen ( what works for me) with no issues. Vitality and strength have returned! Another answered prayer!

-forecast- I promised to use crutches for 2 weeks after surgery and will abide. I feel I could go without but I’m sticking to my plan.
My plan also is no PT until Dr. visit Nov 4 so just walking. Period. I plan to limit myself to 5000 steps a day as a self controlled limit. I’ll send a report in a week. Thanks for all the prayers and positive vibes from just a ton of people. Feeling blessed and focused on recovery!!! LETS GO!!!:driver:
