Hip Recovery: The Guidelines
1. Don’t worry: Your body will heal all by itself. Relax, let it, don't try and hurry it, don’t worry about any symptoms now, they are almost certainly temporary
2. Control discomfort:
BIG TIP: Hips actually don't need any exercise to get better. They do a pretty good job of it all on their own if given half a chance. Trouble is, people don't give them a chance and end up with all sorts of aches and pains and sore spots. All they need is the best therapy which is walking and even then not to excess.

Alrighty, surgery is done, now on to recovery! Sleep and get as much rest as you can it's great for healing. Hopefully your pain is well managed and they're keeping you stocked with ice. Hope you have a restful night.
I hope you are resting more comfortably by now. Be sure to ask for something for the nausea too. Meds can help with that and it makes such a difference in your overall outlook. Here's to a peaceful first night with your new hip
Thank you all. They did give me anti nausea med in my IV.
Must have worn off. Bye bye dinner. More anti-nausea med. Finally had a strong pain medicine. It started to work, and then I lost dinner.
Tomorrow will be a better day I hope.
It's over! Sorry to hear about pain and nausea, but I'm confident they will both be under control very soon. I ate like no tomorrow straight after but my issue for 3 days was low blood pressure causing dizziness whenever I tried to get up....so mostly rested except for PT twice a day (if I could) which did the trick. Rest up my dear, your poor body needs it. We're here for you when you are feeling up to posting more.
Thank you for your words of encouragement!
I slept for 3 hours. Yay! Then up for an hour and slept another 3 hours. I am getting better at using the commode. Log leg. Getting help and using bath robe belt. Back to Sleep.
