I'm so pleased to have my new LH hip fitted on Fri 16th Nov. I had anterior approach with spinal block and light general anaesthetic. I felt nothing and woke up in a pleasant euphoria. Everything OK and was home on Sun. I’m using a cold pad and elevation to reduce swelling and 50mg Tramadol with Paracetamol or Ibuprofen every 6hrs to control pain. So far so good.
