Hi, I 'm having THR on april 15th, pretty nervous..
Worry not @Sunny64 ! As you can see in my signature I had spinal decompression several years before my first THR. And to this day I still have lumbar spine issues. The only impact was one flare of sciatic pain the day following my LTHR. But icing relieve this and I was good to go.I guess one of the things that is giving me lots of anxiety is that I'm worried about complications, I already have bad lumbars an I also I think my other hip is not that great either
I felt weary like this toward the end. In pain, feeling drained. I went to bed early every night the last week or two, just to get off my feet. The heating pad helped. I don’t know that it relieved pain as much as it was a comfort. I’d lay in bed at night and watch tv with it on.I'm hardly walking right now and been in pain for over a year.
