Hi everyone! I've been reading about all the individual experiences and thought I would share mine. I am 75 and had a TRH replacement on the 9th. of September. I have to thank the staff in admitting for spending the time persuading me to follow thru with it. I was very apprehensive to say the least. I was very aggressive post-op and wanted to get back to my regular routine. I was told I could drive after my second week and in my third week I went back to my favorite archery range on two separate days. Now being in my fifth week I changed my winter tires (2) over and with this current snow storm, I managed to clear my sidewalks with help from my neighbors. My wife is constantly after me for doing to much but I tell her that I feel fine and that I'm being careful. Once my surgeon had done his job it was up to me to do mine with the excercis routine post-op. Right now I'm working hard to walk without having an obvious limp. This is only 33 days and I have to keep reminding myself to slow down and be careful because I tend to forget what I just went through. Thanks for listening.
