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.

Part of the Club
« on: April 08, 2011, 04:27:55 AM »
I am in the welcome lounge at the hospital and getting started in about an hour. (Internet and portable devices are wonderful things - what did we ever do before then?  Freak out?)

  I am remarkably calm and a lot of the calm can be attributed to you fine folk whose posts I have been reading for the last couple of months.

Will be back when I'm officially part of the club!  Looking forward to getting on with it :)

i remember sitting in the hospital lounge waiting to get taken back to preop...  i was not freaked out either.  I thought I would be really nervous and worried...but I was pretty calm...  and I too think the reassuring info I read on this site played a huge role in that.

Good luck!  We will all be anxious to read about your post op progress!!  Once you wake up from surgery, and take that first step wh your new hip - you will be so glad you got it fixed!

Just like VC (Sean), I too thought I would freak out waiting to go into surgery. It's just not the way you imagine it to be. I was very calm but anxious to get on with it.

Lori, I have been following your posts, keep us posted on your progress.

I would like to echo the others by welcoming you to the club..I hope it all went well.  :) :)

They are a great bunch on here. Shame we all live so far apart, we could meet up and swap hip stories over a beer or two  ;)

It is an amazing thing what these skilled surgeons are able to do.  The night before my surgery I watched a surgery on youtube by Dr. McMinn.  I'd been afraid to watch it before.  But it actually calmed me and gave me great confidence.  Lori, you are in good hands.

Yay, I'm here!!!  In the club and thankful for all your good wishes :)  Both sides done with the BMHR.  One side was a bit tricky but thanks to the skill of Dr Journeaux we didn't need to go total hip.  I'm finally in my real room today (Thankyou to private health cover) after doing the 24 hour precautionary ICU that Dr Journeaux favors for bilats.  Checkup today went well and drains are out.  I'm not on my feet yet as BP was too low and needed a unit of blood.  I had bed Physio and is all good.  Even with just my legs in the gutter splints I have a better ROM than before and I was a little weirded out looking at them abduct :)

Think I'll be working hard tomorrow when the Physio gets here as everything is pretty heavy and the left side a little weak, but looking forward to getting stronger every day :). Will keep you all posted!!

Lori

Congratulations on the new hips.  BMHR is a great solution.  I will want to post your story on the main site too when you add more about your recovery. 

Good Luck and just take things easy.  Keep in touch.

I am impressed that you had both done at one time - WOW, under the advise of my Doctor I am spreading mine two resurfacing out a few months.  I want to ask my Doctor about doing the second one sooner, rather than waiting.

Again - congrats

Way to go from one bilat to another! It's tough with both at the same time but I'm glad it was done that way. Glad you are doing well.
