I initially had an excellent experience in hospital. Surgery went well and i was up and walking a little with a cane for the next 2 days. Also did stair climbing successfully. The next day I was to be discharged from hospital, but I could barely walk to my ensuite toilet because of shooting pain in groin (even though medicated with pain relief). The next day I was discharged but needed to be wheeled in a wheelchair to the car. Entering and exiting the car was very painful. Spent the day in bed. Excruciating pain to walk to bathroom with walking stick. Hard, painful night. Climbing in and out of bed very difficult and i need to lift my left leg manually. Woke this morning in the same state. Phoned the surgeon's office and one of his staff advised me that this was probably normal and that people heal at different rates. Unfortunately the pain has become worse, even though I am taking Endone and Panamax. I am virtually house bound. Physio phoned to try and make an appointment which of course I declined. Is this what anyone else has experienced?
