I made it to the other side! The surgery went well, my husband spoke with the surgeon afterwards. He said something about the middle of the femur being so small that he had to do a lot of reaming. Also I went in with a leg length discrepancy already due to limping on the hip for quite a few years and most heavily over the last year. He believes he has corrected that! Surgery time was 8am and I was home by 6:30pm. It did take quite a while for the nurse to get my extreme pain under control - which really surprised me. I have a high pain tolerance so I didn’t expect the pain to be so bad!! I have no restrictions, weight bearing as tolerated. Well it isn’t tolerating it right now So I am using a walker and finding myself nauseated every time I get up and walk. I have been taking gravol with the narcotic as well. Lots of water and icing. Early days yet, it will get better!
