    You are now an Honor Graduate [​IMG] 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 [​IMG] 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.

(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 [​IMG] made shorter and easier when made with [​IMG] fellow travelers. So, start you membership in this special club today by requesting that your name and surgery date be added to the list!

    Wow, how are you doing? How long into your recovery did you know something was wrong with your hip replacement? What is AVN?

    Not well. Thanks for asking. Lots of pain in both knees that I've never had previously. Pain in low back, SI joint, IT band of surgical leg and every step i take is painful...far worse than pre surgery. Surgeon is non responsive so I'm seeing PCP tomorrow. Very scary!

    Taura,
    I am sorry to hear about your issues, but you are not alone in your frustration. You are a week behind me . I am 9 weeks out. I was doing pretty good until 5 weeks out and then I started dealing with a lot of nerve pain on my surgical leg and then started to get better, until I got sciatica in my lower back and in my butt. I am going to PT and saw my GP , becsuse like you , my surgeon is done with me , until the next surgery. Hang in there and rest when you can. Are you getting outside Physcial therapy?

    @smokey1, I'd never had the hip replacement that I was due for because I had been running a fever daily and severe pain way past that I'd had from the bone on bone hip. It took two months, 3 hospitalizations, 10 days in a nursing home before a surgeon did an MRI that suggested an infection in my femur. Emergency surgery confirmed that and instead of my hip I'd been waiting for I had the antibiotic spacer instead. AVN is avascular necrosis i.e. the bone died. They cut out the dead part of my femur during the first surgery. Doing ok now w/my new hip finally YAY other than my legs being different lengths from the surgery, tipped pelvis and a messed up opposite ankle. Got off hip precautions yesterday and got permission to drive so again, YAY. and best of all, no more of those damn compression stockings!!!!
