Welcome Back

The Hip Talk Discussion Forum was hacked a few weeks back. It has taken me a long time to fix it. The only backup I could use was way back to April 2020. All members and posts up to that date are available. Anything newer has been lost. I am sorry, but that has been the only way to get things up and running again.

3 days post surgery at apollo
« on: January 23, 2009, 08:09:13 AM »
well it is noon on the third day after my surgey i have walked with a walker and did arm crutches today.
Dr. Bose and his staff are awesome and I am treated like a king.
I must remeber to drink lots of fluids it makes a difference.
I am pretty much off pain meds and only feel tired if I am up and about.
I am leaving for the ideal resort on the 26th and hope to seeother patients.
I cruzed doewn the hall and visted another hip paqtient she didn't know about this web site so I told her it was here for her support.
Lunch time so i will check for now.

Glad to hear you are doing well. 

Enjoy the resort.  I am told they are beautiful.  Take a walk on the beach for all of us that are living in our frigid cold US homes!!!

Good Luck.  We look forward from hearing about your further good news.

Well I am 10 days post op and i have a arm crutch but I can easily walk without it.
I have not covered a more than 3/4 of a mile to the store and back but I have very little pain and am ready for the 24 hr. flight that leaves tonight from Chennai to Seattle Washington. (Yes I traveled completely around the world)
This journey so far could not have gone any smoother (Knock On Wood).
I recovered extremely quickly and have very good range of movement.
I also came into this in good shape and with a positive attitude.
I have enjoyed the food and have found the Ideal Resort and Residency to be affordable and very nice.
I want to thank World Med Assist for all they have done to make this happen.
I would recommend them to any persons needing assistance in traveling abroad.
Wouter and his staff did for me what few companies are able to accomplish when it comes to customer service.
I have also recommend that patients seek out this web site for support.
This is the place for not only support and information but true hope, love and compassion for fellow patients.
I will chat with you state side.

To whom it may Concern:

Well I am back home and feel great.
I checked in at work the next mourning but didnt' work the guys told me to take it easy.
My flighs were long but I had no real issues.
I used wheel chair transport only at Mumbai airport to get threw security and customes. The Ariport was under alert so riding the wheel chair saved me about an hour.
If anybody out there has any questions that I can help answer please drop me a note.
This web site is chalked full of good information and it definitly had a huge impact on my decision making process.
Believe or not for me the operation ended up being a smal part of the journey the rest was the expiernce was discovering India and its culture and meeting lots of people from all over the world.
I now have new friends from all over the world.
Good luck to future patients that choose to travel abroad for thier medical needs.
I did it alone and had a great time.

Thanks agian
Martin
