I can’t wait ! Anyone else having same day surgery? Thanks!
I'm having a THR (right) on April 3! I go back and forth between I can't wait and I don't want to! @beachlily
I’ve cancelled this surgery 2x. But if I want to be able to live my life AS I WANT to... then guess I gotta suck it up and do it.
I won't cancel mine because since January, I am barely able to walk. I really want to spend fun, quality time with my husband, and especially with my four grandsons, ages 11, 4, 3 and 1-1/2. But that doesn't mean I am not scared of what comes next. Guess I need to kick my faith back into high gear!
Are you doing same day surgery? I just had my pre op testing done yesterday... and the physical/occupational therapists gave me
a “ tutorial “ on Walker ( I’m betting I use that for five minutes) and crutch lessons. Anyway, we’ll get through this
Originally, I was supposed to go home next day. My arrival time is between 2 and 5 in the afternoon, which puts surgery late in the day. I'm not sure if I will have two nights in patient or just go home later in the day the first day after
I have had my pre ops and have my surgical assessment on Monday.
My surgery is April 4th and I am told I will stay one night barring any complications. I have been unable to walk more than a few minutes since December and now just spend my days and nights struggling with pain.
I'm betting you use that walker a lot longer than 5 minutes, lol
Are you scheduled to go home same day, @beachlily ? Am I reading that right? I've grown accustomed to some type of assistive device but hope I can get rid of cane or walker in due time.
Yes supposed to have surgery 8 am-go home by 6 pm although since I live 90 minutes away from hospital they might decide to keep me overnight. I had a total knee replacement 7 years ago and only used walker day after surgery-went home 3 days later with cane- I’m hoping hip surgery will be even better... you’re going to do great SarahBee-and if you need to use walker or cane, do it! This is all about your comfort and recovery
I am up for THR on the 4th. Hope to go home the next day all being well. I am getting really nervous but can't wait till it's over and done with. My life has been on hold since August last year when the pain became unbearable. I want my life back.
I wish you all the best! I totally understand the pain interference with life. Here’s to being healthy pain free
“ hippie chicks “!
Hi beachlily, Welcome to the Hip side.
You guys have a lil posse forming. It will be so nice for each of you during recovery.
Fairydell, Carriemay, SarahBee and @beachlily
I'm excited for you all.
Enjoy the weekend!
First I apologize if I’ve started two threads-technology and me not so much!!! Question-does anyone have opinions/experience with posterior v anterior approach to THR? Thanks!
Will definitely follow this discussion as it is something I have wondered as well
And.... can ( should) I continue to work out upper body after a week or so after surgery? I’m not talking boot camp Wonder Woman... I mean like 5-8 pound weights for arms and shoulders while sitting. Thoughts??? Thanks everyone.
Maybe just bench press your pupper!
ETA: I am so bad about working out regularly. I am impressed by those of you who do so.
Soon you’ll be sporting a shinny new hip. Sending healing blessings your way.
I see your beautiful border collie I love them have several over the years.. my fav breed. My girl loves her frisbe.
Hippielife-Thanks. She’s a collie/corgi mix. I do dog agility training with her so I’m hoping not to be laid up too long with this hip. I’d love to see pictures of your BC.
Good luck to all of you in April! It's going to be exciting as you heal and get back to living.
