I had my right hip replaced Thursday afternoon. The surgery was just over 2 hours. I was in the hospital for all of 20 hours! And was sent home last night. My thigh feels like it was beat up with a baseball bat, my neck is really bruised and the anesthesiologists cut the inside of my lip and I ended up with a big ol fat lip Haha I'm shocked how quickly they sent me home! I woke up at 4 this morning with a temperature of 101.7. I think it was because I slept almost 6 hours straight and missed my pain meds dose. It's good to be home but I could see how it could be beneficial to stay in the hospital a little longer..
