Dr. Su and HSS surgery coming from Indiana
« on: November 30, 2011, 10:43:31 PM »
I just completed all of Pre- op exam work and classes.  Less than 48 hours before surgery and still very nervous.

You'll be fine, Jim. Dr. Su and co. will take care of you and you'll come out of it firing on all cylinders. Think of it as a countdown to getting your life back

I was nervous too, but kept reminding myself that the last days of living with a bad hip are over very, very shortly, and the day of surgery is the beginning of long term improvement and relief, and something extraordinarily positive to look forward to.

You'll be fine, not to be trite, but focus on positive outcome and relief, it really makes a difference, and you'll come through with flying colors.

All the best

Jim-

Haven't you heard "size doesn't matter." LOL

That is a pretty good sized one.

That is a typical size for a RS, and yes size does matter since a typical THR is 28=30 mm.  That difference is why after 6 months we don't have any restrictions.

Dr Su said everything went text book.  I am amazed at how little pain there is.   

Walked down hall this morning with walker.   If it wasn't for the light headiness, I would feel awesome.

Jim-

Thanks for the update.  It certainly brought back memories of my first walk.  Of course captured in video and still shots by my girlfriend.

Best wishes.

Today was crutches and stairs.   Should get out tomorrow.  Sitting in chair now.  I am amazed at how good I feel.

Isn't it nice to have nothing from the hip? I'm a year out and it still amazes me
