All the best today! See you on this side soon. Here are your recovery articles just in case. Hip Recovery: The Guidelines
1. Don’t worry: Your body will heal all by itself. Relax, let it, don't try and hurry it, don’t worry about any symptoms now, they are almost certainly temporary
2. Control discomfort:
We try to keep the forum a positive and safe place for our members to talk about their questions or concerns and to report successes with their joint replacement surgery. 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.
Surgery when fine and I've been up to the bathroom already. Pain about 2 so doing well in that department. Got an ice pack and am chilling in the recliner while hubby gets some lunch.
Apparently my OS told my husband the joint was so bad he wasn't sure how I was walking on it.
You sound great! Well managed pain, moving around, chilling in a recliner, lunch with hubby.....
Use that little miracle worker ice often! So happy to hear all is well.
Wishing you a peaceful night and some sound sleep.
Got some Tramadol and was very dizzy for about 30 minutes but feeling better now. @Layla a peaceful night is unlikely as they are checking me every 2 hours overnight. Hopefully I'll be able to go home tomorrow and get some actual sleep.
Ice Ice Baby is current themesong.
Ice, Ice Baby....is good! @jaydub63
You're right....they will come in checking on you. It's best though.
You'll be home in the blink of an eye.
Luckily I managed to get a good chunk of sleep the night I spent in the surgery center.
A nurse checked my vitals at midnight and said "See you in the morning." Didn't show again until 6:00 a.m.
I was surprised.....it was great! You never know, you may get lucky.
Just started to snooze and...new nurse showed up. At least he was funny and shared his observation that his female joint replacement patients were pretty much troopers and the one guy was kind of a wimp.
