Congratulations! Reading your post made me smile. Looks like they've got you on some very good pain medications. It sounds like you are feeling good. So glad surgery went well.

Be looking forward to hearing more from you.

Congratulations Pete!  Welcome to the Hippy side of life!

It looks like you either have some killer pain meds or you are typing on a phone (or both).

Best wishes on your recovery.

Good Job.  I think it's the meds, that's ok, it makes us feel like we're there in the hospital.

Sorry, im typing on a phone and it always adds words etc.  My leg is really tight right now and feels like a lead weight.  Im afraid to move it at all.  I don't have a catheter in but if I still can't pee they are putting one in.  Ugggg.  Also, whenever I eat anything I get really nautious and feel like im going to pass out.  I also break out into a sweat and blood pressure drops tp 107let over 70.  Im usually 118 over 79

The first day is rough, they threatened me with the catheter too, got me going right fast both times. Each person reacts differently to the drugs - they had me on morphine, but only for the first two days. The leg will feel that way for a bit, but the PT gets it loose.

Good luck, things get better - how's the OA pain?

While trying to pee in the potty chair I passed out and landed on my face.  Luckily I fell on my right side.  I hope there are no complications

What?!  You guys didn't have to have a catheter?  The worst part of the whole experience is when they took that @&$}%#*%* thing out.

Nope no catheter but if I can't pee which I still can't then I will need one.  Uggg.  Just got my ct scan so hopefully it is clear.  All other tests were fine.  They said vagel response most likely

Low blood pressure and problems with going are really common issues, be patient and your leg is going to feel like a log for a few days.  Your leg will come back to life.

So, I made it thru my first night.  All the tests came back fine from when I blacked out.  I couldn't urinate so I needed a catheder.  They took it out and I was able to on my own this morning.

Im feeling better so far today.  I met with Dr. Snyder this morning and he said everything went awesome and that my recovery will be quick.  He said tomorrow I will feel like a million dollars so that's encouraging.  I will be startinglunenburg PT in 10the minutes or so.

Happy to hear your updates.  Don't fall on your face any more ;D 

In a couple weeks, you won't even be able to remember all of this - so you can look  back and see how you recovered.  It's not so easy while it's happening, but long after we recovery, it becomes less important because we are planing all the fun things we will be doing with our new hips.

Great to get a blow by blow recovery report.  Take it easy.  Don't get too active the first few days.  Hope you get something good to eat!  Have fun with the new hip  8)

Thank you Pat for the kind words and for building this great place.  I took my first steps a few moments ago and it felt strange.  No joint pain which is geat just a lot of tightness.  Im sitting in a chair now so all is good.

Well, im now 2and days out from surgery and I feel a lot better already.  I woke up at 4am4am which stinks but I also went to bed early last night.  The day of surgery was def a challenge esp for me because of passing out.  Aside from that the following day was so much better and although I haven't been out of bed yet today I can already tell it is going to be easier.  Today it is easier to move my leg around so it should make pt even easier.
