Welcome to our latest and all April Rainbows!
BS 4 April.jpg



You are now an Honor Graduate
from your pre-op days! You've entered the recovery phase of your replacement journey to that place called “Normal”, and you are now eligible to be a
Recovery Club member.

Pre-op surgery team members are automatically recovery team members. If you were not on the pre-op list, please join your fellow travelers in this month’s post-op club by requesting your name and surgery date be added to the roster.


Being a team member will allow you to share your
questions, concerns, and experiences; give one another
support and encouragement;
vent, whine, and
shed some tears, if necessary; and have some
fun and laughs together
. (Please do the above in one another’s recovery threads. And if you find your fun and laughs taking over an individual thread, toss them over to the Social Room to keep your recovery thread on target.)

Recovery is a long journey
made shorter and easier when made with
fellow travelers. So, start you membership in this special club today by requesting that your name and surgery date be added to the list!

Morning I’m now three and half weeks post op, I’ve been icing my knee and foot which has really helped bring the swelling down, I wanted to find out if anybody has iced the replacement hip joint? Do you think this would help with recovery?

Maybe @bottomshollow can move your latest post to its own thread. You'll get more responses in the normal threads.

Hi, right THR on 12th April 2019. Recovery going well. Off pain meds and crutches. Walking up to a mile most days, without walking aids and spending 10 minutes on an exercise bike, just pedalling gently. Just wish I could sleep.
