Had BHR today Mr Keen Spire Cambridge Lea UK
« on: January 28, 2011, 11:18:30 PM »
I had my proceedure this lunchtime and was back in my room by 1700.

For those of you who don't know, I went under not knowing if I would wake up with a BHR or a THR.

I am overjoyed to say that I have the BHR!

Operation went like a breeze as has my recovery so far.
I can already feel that the awful, nagging, won't go away pain in my groin, back and hip joint has dissapeared entirely.
Of course I have pain from the operative parts but I know they will fade with time.

Haven't been out of bed as yet as I was last on list so will have to wait till morning.
Can't wait!!!

Thanks again to all on the site and of course to Pat for creating it and correlating so much superb information.

Expect updates!

Congratulations Alan and best wishes for a smooth recovery and rehab.

From the timing of the post can we deduce that you are another internet junkie.  ;)

Thanks.

Hopefully corrected the time was wrong in my profile  ::)
although that's sent the time of my original post haywire, I apparently posted it later *today*!

Great news Alan. You can now look forward to doing laps of the small corridors at Cambridge Lea.

I'm now 1 week post my BHR from Mr Keene and feeling stronger every day. Had my first physio session yesterday and although a little fustrating at the moment due to the lack of mobility, they were very happy with my range of movement. Still not sleeping that well, but improving gradually night by night. Only really using painkillers at night now.

Mr Keene made it very clear that he wanted me to only partially weight bear for the entire 6 weeks (this was confirme by my physio yesterday). I'll be interested to read if you get the same advice.

Good luck!

Paul.

Hi Paul,
yes I was most pleased to wake up and be told the good news.

Actually managed a couple of laps today only a day after the op so was very pleased, could also manage to perform all of th initial excersises including the straight leg raise which impressed me almost as much as it did the physio!

Onwards and upwards.

I have been instructed exactly the same by Mr Keene, six weeks on both crutches.

Glad to hear you too are progressing well

Congratulations Alan!!

It really helps to hear all of these positive outcomes as the day of my procedure approaches.  I'm going to go out and buy a cane today.

Update!

Well I'm off home later today!
Approx 70 hours after my operation, fantastic.

Have progressed really well, doing a set of 8 different exercises 4-5 times per day and walking "the lap" here at the hospital after each set for a further 10 minutes.

Any pain has been purely restricted to the surgical side of things, the hip itself feels fantastic.

Have been really lucky and haven't suffered any of the constitution/urine retention problems but then I have eaten nothing but Bran Flakes, fruit and vegetables and religiously taken my laxative as instructed :)

The physio at the hospital reckons my biggest problem is going to be keeping the reigns on myself and not to overdo things, I am aware I must be careful!

Overall I am really, really pleased with the result, my only regret is that I didn't re-arrange things 14-16 months ago and have the procedure then rather than soldering on and putting myself through months of horrible pain and drugs that made me feel terrible.

Good luck to anyone with a procedure coming up, you won't regret it ;)

To anyone dithering over the merits of being operated or not, don't even think about it!
