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.

Surgery in one week.
« on: March 25, 2011, 05:35:43 PM »
Hello to all.  Having a Left BHR by Dr. Rector in Boulder Co. 4/01/11.  I'm ready for some rehab pain to replace what I have now. The great info and stories on this site have helped me very much. Thanks!

You will do well. I am seven days post op and the worst thing is being stuck in the house.  I so desperately want to go places but don't want to do too much too soon. Get you some good dvds, video games, someone to keep you company. Keeping the mind busy is my hardest challenge.

Krunch,
You'll do great. I just had my 3-week checkup with Dr. Rector on Wednesday. Whole process was pretty smooth, making progress every day, down to cane and trying to wean from that. I go back to work Monday. Best of luck.

If you are into DVD movies I just saw the whole Prison Break series. It was a whole lot of fun and a great way to break up the monotony of the recovery process. Trying out TrueBlood now. Stack you DVDs

Hi Krunch,
Good luck to you on April 1st, what a day to pick.  You are just setting your self up for jokes with Dr Rector, lucky for you I hear he has a dry demanor.
I am scheduled for May 11th with Dr Rector, do you know what # HR you will be? 
Best of luck and keep us posted.

You will do great!  I think you will be pleasantly surprised that while you have discomfort after surgery, it's nothing like the bone on bone arthritis pain you have now. I was in less overall pain after surgery than I was before.  At five weeks post op.... I feel like a new person!!! 

If you wake up after surgery  and the doctor tells you they put your leg back  on backwards..... Remember it's April Fools day!

Krunch,

Go for it and feel good about it. I am 5 days post op and even with the pain and inconvenience for the moment I feel great with my decision. Be prepared mentally to endure whatever comes your way, it all passes quickly and you will be so much better for it.

Good luck!

Hi Krunch,

Today is your day.  Did anyone play any jokes on you?  Hope all is well and you are healing up well.  I spoke with Stacey today to make a change for my Pre-op appt, it is coming up.

Surgery went fine yesterday.  Pain is not bad at all, just stiffness and limited range of motion. Walked the hall (with walker) without problems.  Everyone here at Boulder Community Hospital is great and I'm looking forward to heading home to Wyoming tomorrow morning.  Thanks everyone for all of the positive support.

Great!  You will get better and better day by day....  I'm 5 weeks post op and recovery has been gradual but steady.  Every so often I'd find myself more sore one day than the day before and it felt like a small setback, so if that happens don't be discouraged.  I think it's normal.  Overall, if I mapped my progress by the week, instead of by the day, it was all progress.

You will be walking, zero assistance, no crutches no cane soon enough.  Take it easy, listen to your body, and good luck! 

It will be great to be pain free!
