Being an avid golfer would love be at driving range in 4 weeks but live in Wyoming. Either way not happening lol. Glad you are doing well!excellent points .... I had the same protocol with both my THRS..Might want to suggest to the anesthesiologist.."amnesia type " drug in the mix ...I woke up during my first surgery RATHER UNPLEASANT... I do understand as the goal is to keep the anesthesia as light as possible... The second surgery with the amnesia drug was terrific.... I still have no memory of being moved into the OR ... Four weeks out ... on the treadmill and at the driving rangeI would encourage those discussing anathesia to consider spinal with sedative. There are some key advantages for this route over GA when having hip replacement. Some will disagree on this board but happy I chose such with anterior approach.
