Hello. I actually didn’t find this site till after my right THR. I‘ve been creeping around the site ever since, reading other people’s stories to ease my mind. But now I’ve had some things happen that I haven’t seen addressed. I had my surgery April 25. According to the doctors the surgery went good. Went home on the 26th. Post surgical protocol called for PT once a week for 4 weeks. At my 1st PT, I informed my therapist that things weren’t going well because at one week, I thought I’d be off the walker. He informed me that my expectations were a little high. This is when I found BoneSmart. Recovery from there has been ok. At 3 weeks I went to a cane full time. The night before my 4th visit, I woke up with mid-back muscle spasms on my right side. That next day I casually mentioned the spasms and that it hurt worse if I breathed deep. Long story short? Blood clot in lung. Another trip to the hospital and they found another clot in my right calf. My doctor was very surprised because he said I was such a low risk for a clot. The doctor called the clots “small.” I was prescribed blood thinner eliquis 5mg 2 pills, twice a day for a week, then 1 pill twice a day for 3 weeks. I’ve now been on eliquis for 2 weeks. Now for the questions. The fatigue I’ve felt has gotten worse since week 2. Would a “small” blood clot cause fatigue? I don’t feel any difficulty breathing even though I seem to get out of breath really easy. Also, for the past couple days, I’ve had what I would describe as a low grade headache that I just can’t seem to get read of. I’ve never had a history of headaches. I'm trying to figure out if the eliquis is causing this or is it coincidence. Another subject. I’m a delivery driver for UPS. It’s very physically demanding. My surgeon has me going back to work in 11 weeks. I’ve asked the nurse a couple of times about the chances that it would be too soon but they seem absolutely convinced that I’ll be ready. Her exact words were “we fully expect that you’ll be ready.” I’m 6 weeks out right now and while I’m walking ok I can definitely feel the weakness in the leg and climbing stairs is difficult. I’m wondering if 5 more weeks is anywhere close to enough time for my hip to heal enough for me to be climbing in and out of a truck 140 times a day. Any thoughts?
