Kaiser is doing a BHR for me on Friday(1/27) in Denver – Dr. Gargaro. He did have some reservations about it, but agreed to do it after other Kaiser docs though I should have the BHR.

7 hours post op and feeling good. everything went well.
The post surgery drug induced honeymoon is over. They hAd me hang my legs off the bed for first time. it was brutal. I wanted to do it on my own so I was in control of when the excruciating pain would come. PRobably made it harder on myself. Need to learn to trust the nurse. Start pt today.

I’m came home yesterday and I’m sitting in my recliner right now. feeling pretty good. I feel like the worst part is behind me. Slept ok last night. Pillow underneath my knees helped.

I’m 6 days post op and doing pretty good. The hip has been feeling better every day. Yesterday and today I walked around the block. Had my best night of sleep last night after putting two pillows under my knee on the bad side instead of one. Also put a small one under my low back. Took some of the pressure off my hip. This site is so great. so comforting and encouraging to hear from everyone who has already fought the battle.

I’ve graduated from the walker to one crutch after 10 days, so I’m pretty happy about that. Left the house for the first time last night to go to my son’s basketball game. Felt good to get out. Things are progressing well.
Had my two week post op appt today and they told me I should not be putting much weight on leg with the BHR. needless to say, this is very frustrating for me.
