Hello, I had my right THR on Wednesday 29th September and haven't been out of bed yet! Pain has beem horrendous, same as before only worse! Sooo depressing. Although wound is sore, I expected that but all the muscle spasms and aches, particularly around knee and below calf have been dreadful, still the dreadful dire toothache and crampy feeling. Problem has been my BP has been very low, also blood count so yesterday they decided to give me two blood transfusions which I think has helped. They didn't want to get me up in case I fell. So have had no proper physio and now they are off for the weekend! I suppose the nursing staff will try and get me up today ( desperate for the loo) but feeling depressed because so many people said pain changed and mine hasn't except for the worse. Surgeon says hip x-ray is good but as my leg was short they had to pull and sttech muscles which is why they hurt so much. I keep crying because they all look so puzzled when I try to explain the pain. ( And to think I was worried about getting back to yoga! Now some pain relief is only aim!). Has anyone else experienced anything like this?
