BLUE TOOLBAR CHANGES! We've made some minor adjustments to the categories in the blue tool bar at the top of your screen. You may notice some links in a different drop-down menu, but everything is still there.
to Bonesmart and happy to hear you are soon to get your hip replaced soon so you can be back on the road to happy and healthy.
I went home in a F150 with running boards two days after bilateral surgery, and probably in hindsight would have been easier with a medium sized vehicle.
Luckily, I have fairly good upper body strength and with a little behind support from DH, I got up there slowly but safely.
Go out and try to get in like you've just had a THR. Probably not the best choice of vehicles but if it's all you have I guess you can make do. My wife's Envoy is low for a 4wd so I could just back up to the seat and sit down and then pivot in. My pickup wasn't even a chance I could get in for the first weeks. Then I used a step stool to get in it when I could drive it.
I'm sorry; I'm probably not navigating in the right area on this Forum; I'm having my left hip replaced this coming Friday, 11/27. I joined this forum back in July of 2013 and it was a definite lifesaver...a voluminous value of information!! ...thank you!!
