Total Left Hip Replacement on 9-18-2017 Hello. This is my first post on here, so please forgive any mistakes. I had total left hip replacement on 9-18-2017, so today is day 9. I am doing good physically. I am doing my PT, both in home, and going out to the actual PT facility. I am moving well with the walker, and will probably graduate to crutches next week. My hip is starting to feel "normal," and not that "strange" feeling anymore. The thing is, I am getting panic attacks. I don't know what starts them, or what the trigger is. I know I need to get outside more. I will do word searches, and read, but there are times when I just start to cry, and it feels like the walls are closing in. I am sometimes afraid to go to sleep at night too. I don't like being strapped to that pillow either. There are so many restrictions, and I'm keeping them, it is just hard. I know many of you know what I am talking about. I take it day by day, but needed to vent to others that have gone through the same thing. My husband has been wonderful about all of this. I take it day by day, but these panic attacks are not fun. Any advise would be great. Thank you.
