All the best today! I'll leave a copy of your recovery articles here for you.
Hip Recovery: The Guidelines
1. Don’t worry: Your body will heal all by itself. Relax, let it, don't try and hurry it, don’t worry about any symptoms now, they are almost certainly temporary
2. Control discomfort:
BIG TIP: Hips actually don't need any exercise to get better. They do a pretty good job of it all on their own if given half a chance. Trouble is, people don't give them a chance and end up with all sorts of aches and pains and sore spots. All they need is the best therapy which is walking and even then not to excess.
We try to keep the forum a positive and safe place for our members to talk about their questions or concerns and to report successes with their joint replacement surgery.
While members may create as many threads as they like in a majority of BoneSmart's forums, we ask that each member have only one recovery thread. This policy makes it easier to go back and review history before providing advice.
So good to hear!! Thank you for letting us know. Many well wishes coming your way! Here's to kind nurses and a quiet night of rest for you.
Oh, a hint about potential constipation. Paul Newmans organic pitted prunes: 6 before bed plus 4 ounces prune juice with breakfast. My dear friend was given this hint before his surgery by his doc. Worked like a charm!
Hope this play-by play is useful to others.
I slept long and pretty well. Had some real pain at 4am, they gave me 10 mg oxy instead of just 5. Pain is gone but I'm kinda stoned. We shall see how they adjust all of this.
I'll have two pt and one ot session today, then if all goes well home in the afternoon.
Ate some eggs, now feel
Hubby added prunes to the grocery list.
Ooo, catheter out, so much more up and around today.
Good to hear your update. Oh, that early pain can be unsettling. Glad it is better with oxy though the head does get foggy.
May your day with PT and OT go well. Safe travels home to your recovery nest! Rest! Sending lots of well wishes.
@cstinchcomb welcome to the healing side and happy to hear you're resting at home. Pain under control and getting up for bathroom breaks, while it can be annoying it's a good sign and it helps with stiffness.
It's so good to see you in recovery, congratulations! The exhaustion is real, isn't it? I would begin to type someone and would wake up to a bunch of jibberish as my fingers sat still on the keyboard as I snoozed away.
is your best friend.. I know you are aware of that, but I love this little fella sitting on that ice block.
