Thanks so much for checking in, @CricketHip. So far, so good. My main complaint has been a fuzzy, weird head, as I really have had no hip pain to speak of since day two. The sudden flood of drugs - anti-inflammatory, aspirin, antibiotic, pain relief - may have overwhelmed my system. I was able to stop taking Tramadol 48 hours post-op, so that helped stabilize my head. Trying to be a model Bonesmart patient: icing religiously with homemade Ziploc ice packs made with the Bonesmart ‘recipe’, and doing gentle PT exercises provided by my surgeon (ankle pumps, heel slides, quad contractions). I wonder how many patient phone calls surgeons have been spared due to the instant experienced advice available on Bonesmart? I have come here every day Post-op and always found the practical information I needed, or the reassurance that what I was feeling was normal. Not to say that I would substitute Bonesmart for my surgeon’s expertise, but rather that Bonesmart provides a sort of triage level of care for non-urgent issues that can be used before contacting the doctor.
