Hello everyone, Right THR on January 22. Had three instructional sessions of PT in hospital. Came home the next day. Since then have been virtually pain-free. Absolutely fantastic. Following all precautions - very gentle exercises, up and around the house every hour or two. (Ankle pumps, clenching quads and glutes, heel slides, supported leg lifts). With the surgeon's approval I deferred any pt until two weeks post surgery. All was so fantastic that I decided to accept my neighbors' invite to dinner last night. Used walker and cane to get to car and up several steps to their house. In the house parked myself on a couch and enjoyed socializing. Got up with walker a couple of times, but all-in-all I felt like a model patient. Two hours into the visit everything spasmed and I knew I had just overdone it. Wow - I didn't know it would be that easy to overdo it. Still having spasms today, but hoping with rest it will die down. With my last hip surgery (arthroscopy in August 2018) I know I frequently overdid it and perhaps jeopardized my recovery, so I am bound and determined to take it so slow this time - the difficult part is getting a sense of what is too much. Challenging!
