In bed in my room after recovery room. I had epidural block regional anesthesia. My surgery took 45min to 1 hour. Im now resting with a bit of pain but not so bad. I feel it in my groin are. The PT team tried to get me up out of bed and they did, but my blood pressure was 96 oover 59 and I got super dizzy that I had to sit down
Hopefully tomorrow we will try again PT. They keep my compression socks 24/7 they also gave me 3 execises to do in bed. every 2 hours around the clock. Its now 9: 58 pm and Im fighting my sleep. Im waiting for the tramadol at 10:56. Well, my beautiful bone people I will leep you posted on my recovery. I love you all!
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.

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.
Dhall the epidurak is the way to go. No nausea or side effects from General anesthesia. Yes, Im uncomfortable cant hide that but compare to the pain that I have been enduring no comparison. Its well doing your hip. It really is not as bad as it really looks. Its scary, but they have everything under control and besides you aint gonna feel a thing. Blessings on your surgery. When is your date of surgery? Im here for you, whatever I can do let me know. If you can read my post I cancelled surgery prior to this one on Sept 18. I didnt feel right. sometimes we have to go with Gods decision; and if you have a gut feeling go see another surgeon. Make sure this surgeon does 300+ surgeries a year.Much Love, from my hospital bed in room 5348. Gretelin.
Please consider taking your meds on schedule right now.
You want to stay AHEAD of pain, and the residual surgery anaesthetic will leave and this is when I had a brief time of uncontrolled pain. Not fun.
It may also help you doze and the body can use all the healing rest it can get.
