Hello everybody, Just setting up my recovery thread in advance 'cause I don't know when I'll be mentally and physically fit again to "use technology". Tomorrow is the day, but they made me go to the hospital today at 11:00 am. It's a long wait. This going in early is probably so they can get the paporwork done. They also took more blood in case I need a blood transfusion, but my surgeon said I probably won't. Saw the nurse who is on duty and theward doctor who took the blood. Apart from that, nothing much has happened, really. I'll write more when it's all done.
So are you in the hospital tonight @Constanze before your surgery, or was today's stuff just pre-op machinations?
No, I had the preop machinations about 2 weeks ago. Today, I went through the proper admission procedure and it's all finished. All I can do now is wait for tomorrow and explore the surroundings - cafeteria, the location where I'll have my rehab which is planned after the hospital stay etc.....
Best of luck with surgery and hopeful for great outcome with zero old hip pain! Treat yourself well! Prayers.

Day 0

Hello, hello to all you wellwishers. I'M so pleased to get so many good wishes from so many people. I'm fine and my new hip feels good.

There was a delay i.e. the op didn't start until 11 a.m. Got my spinal with sedation, didn't hear anything.They were just finishin the op when I woke up. there was zero pain and incredibly happy. Then, before they wheeled me back into my room, they made me wait until the spinal wore off and monitored everything - blood pressure, heart... so during this time I experienced I bit of discomfort. But then they gave me some different pain killir Novalgin plus some kind of narcotic which they did'nt say the name of. Now I'm back in my room, and hubby came to see me. Will write more another day.
Well done day 0 nearly over. I can't imagine being admitted the night before and then waiting til 11am still at least the waiting and the op are over now. Look forward to hearing your progress. look after yourself!
@Constanze - So glad to hear you are done with surgery rainbow hippie! :yes!:

just wanted it over too. Wishing you you well on rehab! Get your painkillers on time too.
