Hi there :wave: what a time you've had.. glad to hear you are home and resting and even more glad to hear you have an appointment next week!
I know we are all different but I had low BP after both of my THR's and usually take a good bit of blood pressure meds to keep mine at a safe level. I literally didn't take my blood pressure meds for at least 3 weeks post op. Hopefully it's something similar for you. Have they checked to see if you are anemic? Most likely they did, but had to ask.

Wishing you the very best of outcomes, glad to read you aren't in pain now. That was worrisome, too.

Happy New Year! :happy-new-years-toast-smiley-emoticon:

I hope you're feeling better, Erica.
With any luck your BP is returning to normal. Hoping your appt on Friday brings answers and speedy resolution so you can get on with healing and have a great 2020.
Happy New Year!

Every time I see you pop up on the forum I get excited that you are doing better and back here posting.

Your last post was worrisome. I do hope your blood pressure issues have improved and that your revision is providing greater stability and less pain. Sending healing wishes @ebair23 and some sun for a brighter tomorrow. :SUNsmile::SUNsmile: Hugs. Sarah

Well...it's been two months since your revision, Erica, and I'd love to wish you a Happy Anniversary and hope that it is happy and you're progressing nicely. I'm still a bit worried as we haven't heard from you. Prayers all is well and you're simply enjoying recovery and life.

Sorry it’s been so long. Times have been extra weird lately. Been doing well until last night. I felt like I needed to stretch my legs and when I did I feel a big pop in my operated leg and it hurt horribly. Can walk. I was thinking I wouldn’t be able to. I am trying to figure out if I want to tell my ortho. Anyone else have this happen?

Hello Erica, Happy Easter :)
Its good to hear from you! If it were me, since whatever you did hurt “horribly” as you described, I’d call the surgeons office in the morning and let a member of his care team determine whether you need to be seen, or advise. In the meantime I’d use ice and OTC pain relievers if you feel the need.
Wishing you comfort, hopefully it’s just a minor setback.

Hi Erica, sorry you had a scare. I agree with Layla and think a phone call to your OS group may give you the reassurance/advice that you need. I've worried about bothering my medical team in the past, but after I make the call I feel sooooo much better.


It's good to hear from you and would love to hear what your OS says if you decide to call.

Hello @ebair23 … Hoping to hear a good report from your surgeon's office. Even though it hurt, the fact that you could walk is very reassuring. I've had strange things happen over the past few years with my new hips thinking I hurt myself, and it turned out to be nothing harmful. I hope that is the same for you :friends:

Hey Erica,
Just wondering how you’re doing and whether you decided to contact your surgeons office?
I hope you’re having a good week so far. :)
