My name is Dustin and I received an LBHR on 6/18/12. I am 24 years old and have not had anyone to talk to around my age about surgery/recovery from a BHR.
My surgeon is Dr. Schmitt based out of the DMC in southeastern Michigan.
I am now 3 days post op and feeling pretty good. I am home and did really well with PT in the hospital. After the first session they told me I didn’t need to go to PT in the hospital anymore and sent me out. I have been trying to get around as much as possible and actually to 3 steps unassisted yesterday (with the walker right in front of me of course).

I’m out of surgery and have been getting precautionary stomach injections for clots since in the hospital. I cannot stand shots, and the stomach seems to be the spot that bothers me the most. Today I put the gut on ice for about 10 minutes and then did the shot…didn’t even feel it go in!!! Just figured I would share for anyone else who hates them too.
My pains have lessened a little over the past two days so I’m hoping it keeps right on going. I have the muscle pain and tightening in my ITB area as well. My PT says to just keep working it at a slow an easy pace and it will get better with time.
