I have read this site for 2 years leading up to surgery and wanted to come on here and post about my surgery. I had a right BHR done Feb 28, 2012. Dr Robert Barrack of Washington University Orthopedics in St Louis, MO did the surgery.
My progress has been wonderful. Dr Barrack did surgery on Tuesday, sent me home on Wednesday, I was walking with a cane Friday, walked a mile on the track Sunday, and am at work today.
There has been some swelling, but not what I was expecting. My muscles freak out periodically, but I expected that. I don’t know why my recovery is going so fast but can only contribute it to the surgeon.
I have done research on this sight for about 2 years and have only seen Dr Barrack’s name mentioned a couple of times. If anyone is looking for a surgeon in the St Louis area, I highly recommend him.
I would also like to thank Pat for creating such a wonderful website. The information on the site has followed right along with what my surgeon has asked me to do. Doing research on this site is what convinced me to go ahead with a BHR instead of a THR and I am very glad that I did.
