Welcome to our latest and all September Sapphires!




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 :bawl: 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 your membership in this special club today by requesting that your name and surgery date be added to the list!

I had an anterior hip replacement on September 18th. Recovery is up and down. This is week 3 and one of the most challenging. Anyone else experiencing this?

Hello fellow hip replacers!
Had bilateral hip replacement on September 27th, so day 15 today. Recovery good so far. Able to walk unaided(lifting walker) on day 8 and now walking(though quite 'waddly') unaided during the day(in house). Waiting for nurse to come by and take out staples which I am NOT looking forward to as I have about 40 on each side and the incision area is sore.
Worst problem is restless legs, likely caused by post operative anaemia, and being unable to return to any kind of normal sleep pattern. Have been prescribed low dose Doxepin to help.
68 yo female residing in Florida. Lateral minimally invasive approach.

I had posterior right hip replacement on 9/20. I’ve been doing OK except for an excruciating pain in the butt when bending over. I had my last appointment with surgeon’s office at 8 weeks. My primary doctor said it is from my back and to use heat. This continues to be a problem. The pain goes away after a bit but comes back each time I bend over. I was wonder if anyone else has this problem and if it is just a part of recovery. My surgeon‘s office said I don’t need any more follow up or physical therapy.
