Well I had my LTHR surgery Anterior on June 12 and today Sunday 16 is four days PO. I’m feeling pretty good, doing my home exercises, taking all meds am on 2.5 mg oxycodone, 2 Tylenol every 4 hrs and some other meds for BMs which I have not done yet. I’m resting in between taking wonderful naps and icing the incision 24/7. I’m a little tired. Have some pain in the groin and incision area but I’m hopeful it will go away within a few weeks. I need to build my muscles up in my op leg so I can move it better. Am a little weak doing the marching exercise but it is getting better. So far no swelling in my legs but I am running mild temps at night with last nights it was 100.7. I’m drinking allot of water mixed with cherry juice for a little flavor. Was told it would take a full year to get back to 100%. But everyday gets better. I have a home aid coming in on Monday to help with my home PT etc. And after 14 days will have my staples removed. My husband is taking very good care of me. Cooking my meals and doing everything that I was doing but can’t now. I’m sleeping in my recliner because right now it’s impossible to sleep and get comfortable in bed. So I’ll stay in the recliner a few weeks until the pressure subsides on my op leg. My little dog Ginger knows there is something not right with Mommy and sleeps with me on my good leg and is happy to be by me. My husband picks her up and puts her by me as I cannot bend to get her yet. She is a small 7 lb toy Yorkshire Terrier. My incision is covered with a nice waterproof dressing which is see through and any drainage will come to the top. So far so good. I had a nice shower yesterday after being in hospital fir 3 days. I have the Polar3 uncemented implant with one screw. The surgeon showed me my X-ray and it looks perfect. She said I had excellent bone quality. Having my bone density test 2 days b4 surgery the tech said I was in the green. No osteoporosis or osteopenia so that’s good news for this 65 yr old gal. My moto is “one day at a time”. As long as I’m careful, taking meds, keeping hydrated, icing and elevating, doing the simple home exercises I should progress and bounce back quick. I have to admit I am a little tired but as the pain subsides I’ll have more energy. I believe I made the right decision to go through with this surgery and hopefully by next summer I’ll be back on my bike. The OP PT should help me reach my goals. Keeping a positive, optimistic attitude going forward will help!!
