L BHR with Mr Treacy
« on: October 31, 2011, 10:18:54 PM »
Well I had my pre op assessment at the royal orthopaedic Hospital in birmingham.
Was just the usual tests blood, height, weight, swabs etc.
I got to Play with a BHR which was pretty cool too.
I am being admitted on the 9th for the op on the 10th.
I'm now feeling confident and I'm looking forward to recovery!

Thanks for the kind words rob.
I'd like to thank pat especially and everyone on here as with out this site I don't know where I would have ended up treatment wise! Probably with sone weird and wonderful THR.
Although I've not gone under the knife yet and am obviously a long way from recovery at least with one of these I have a good chance of living my life again so pat and everyone else thank you so so much I owe you big time.
Now for the easy part getting chopped up! :D

Good Job, Danny!

You might be one of the youngest here, but it doesn't matter.  You'll probably recover faster than any of us.

BTW - I get to play with 2 BHRs everyday, when I walk downstairs, make some coffee, sit on the couch, put my shoes on, ride my bike to work, walk to the printer, walk upstairs, walk to the burrito stand, ride home, work on the boat, cut some firewood, do my stretches, cut my toenails, read the hiking book about the next trail I want to walk on, sleep comfortably all night long,....

and I love it.

Danny-

Best wishes on your upcoming procedure.  Just remember that you have done all that you can do.  Leave the rest to the professionals.  You will be in great hands.

I look forward to hearing your progress once you start recovery and ultimately rehabilitation.

Dan thanks mate. I had a call from the ocupational health people at the ROH this evening and they informed me Mr Treacy doesn't have any restrictions post op ie 90 degree etc which is nice to know.

I didn't have those restrictions either, Danny. Obviously I was still careful and did what my surgeon / PT / visiting nurse told me to do.

Hern,
        That's good to know mate. I don't really know what other restrictions are normally imposed other than no impact for 12 months etc. I'm assuming that your not allowed to lift anything heavy etc. What restrictions did you have mate?

Not much. I was careful about lifting anything heavy early on (above 50 lbs) with my arms. I started lifting weights with my legs (leg press, about 200 lbs), towards the end of outpatient PT, or about 3months post surgery. I got on a spinning bike within four weeks.

Home PT started the day after I came home, with exercises that mirror the ones listed on this web site. I was on Tylenol for pain and aspirin for anti clot duty. I was careful about twisting the leg inwards and when I could, slept with a pillow either under my knees (when on my back) or between my knees (when I started sleeping on my side).

And I walked walked walked, rest and ice. So I guess not many restrictions, more things that I needed to do fairly often.

Hern,
       Thanks for the info. I'm looking at walking as much as I can first then I'll go from there.

      First of all best of luck with the surgery and a very happy recovery!  I borrowed Hern's stretching exercises and they have helped (plus they make you feel like you're doing something to help recovery...a good mental side effect).  The weight lifting and cycling etc. will come.  The walking, stairclimbing, sleeping, standing up and sitting down...those are the things that consumed the early part of recovery for me.  Almost no pain to speak of (yay), but the leg felt very awkward and weak when moved in the directions directly related to the surgical dislocations.  A wierd example was making right turns in my car with an operated right hip.  The leg would swing toward the center and feel kind of unsupported and awkward...didn't like it.  Not so much painful as "I don't want to go there". 
       As I have gotten stronger over the past 4 weeks, I hardly notice the basic movements anymore, but I'm mindful of not pushing my operative leg in the wrong ways (crossing, toe in, knee across centerline).  Its getting better, but I figure that stressing it like the dislocation did is the only way I can really injure myself at this early stage.  As others have said, your body will probably give you the best advice when it feels you are doing too much...if it causes a twinge, hurts or resists too much....STOP and reconsider!  Good luck, Curt

Right my bags are packed and I'm just in bed now I'm ready for the trip down to Birmingham in the morning.
I'm trying to compile a list of questions to ask Mr Treacy. Anyone got any sugestions?

Start with "Did you sleep well?".  I get that all the time as a pilot.  Never mind, it isn't funny to me either.  Just relax and let the pro handle everything.  Save your questions for post op (write them down so the drugs don't do all the talking and blabbering).  Angle of the implant, damage seen in the hip and any corrections or extra work needed there during the procedure, condition of the soft tissues and any other pleasant or unpleasant surprises that were found during the operation.  Oh yeah, then say "thanks, Doc."
    The very best of luck Danny.  Curt
