Hey there Monika et al just a day 10 update from the Chuckster it's going well I am being very diligent and patient with my recovery just trying to get lots of rest with the proper mixture of exercises and walks to the bathroom etc .
I went outside yesterday first time front porch just to feel the sun [emoji295]️ on my face for 10 minutes it felt great.

My older (26) son has been with me since I got home but he goes back to his place and his work Monday so it's me and my youngest (18) going forward. He has been helpful as well so I am in good hands.

At this point I need a little help still getting in and out of bed but that's about it. I get around good with the walker and feel maybe I can switch to cane later this week. I am still a bit constipated from the pain meds which I am slowly but surely reducing. Also, the ankle swelling happens toward the end of the day but the overall swelling seems a bit better by the day. Baby steps and I remain patient and optimistic. I am SO glad I did them both within 5 months and am SO looking forward to walking on the beach this summer free of end stage OA and its associated pain. As the great philosopher Irish [emoji256] Joe once said " bye bye hip pain" !!!!

Next milestone Friday May 12 I see the PA fit my two week checkup looking forward to seeing Tom and discussing my progress! Well let's keep pushing forward my BoneSmart friends and let's rid the world of hip pain one day at a time. Hip Hip Hooray [emoji1319]!

Wowza! How inspiring this is. Thanks Chuck. People keep asking me about my other hip. I think it is okay but how would I know with the one I recently had replaced screaming st me all the time? Your enthusiasm is grest. Let the tortoise be your totem animal and you'll be Hipster Chuckster soon enough.

Hi Aussie Girl hope you are doing well keep me updated ...Irish Joe you are the man! I appreciate all the great support from my BoneSmart friends .

Update day 13 I'm getting in and out of shower it feels great ! My leg/foot swelling continues but dramatically dissipates after a long rest in bed. Seems to happen mostly late night. I've got a bit complacent with icing so I need to keep it up. Other than that it's all going great I'm in the cane albeit slow but feeling a bit stronger daily!

Not to be too repetitive but this Hip #2 is better because I know what to expect I'm patient and I have a great new left hip to rehab on. Very different than last time. I can't wait to walk again pain free and cane free like I used to before end stage OA ravaged my well being. I'm so thankful to everyone who's has helped me in this arduous process. I still can't believe I had two major surgeries and have TWO shiny new hips within a 5 month period !!

2 week X-rays and PA appointment Friday hoping to be walking and cleared to drive again by Memorial Day or so. Baby steps, patience, and diligence regarding my recovery protocols will continue until then.

All my friends here please feel free to comment on my situation and/or yours here on my thread I love the feedback it helps dramatically to stay positive and move forward. Hip hip hooray !!!!

You've got the best attitude Chuckster!! So glad all is going well. You're right, slowly but surely the way to go. I will be much more prepared for that when I have to do my next one. Must be a lot easier for you this time with the OA pain gone and a good leg to help the op leg along. This is going to be a GREAT summer for the Chuckster!! Hope your appointment goes well.
Keep posting, very inspiring :)

Thanks SO much Sam you are awesome!! I'm really buoyed by the support of people like you here on BoneSmart what a fabulous group. I am at exactly 2 weeks today and yes it's so so much better rehabbing with a good hip #1. I cannot wait to walk on the beach this summer and swim in the ocean and go back to all the fun activities that I enjoyed prior to OA taking them away from me. One day at a time we got this. Have a happy day !!
