Boomer is now officially a Hippy
« on: December 01, 2011, 12:05:28 AM »
Haven't seen Dr. Rector myself but he told my wife the surgery went well. I'm waiting for a solid food dinner, quite mad with hunger. Hospital staff has been great! So much kindness.

Things look so much better from the other side!

Everything you Hippys told me about surgery was right on. Thanks for the guidance.

Kudos on the new 1.2 lb cobalt chrome enhancement, and that things went so well.  Ice, ice, ice, it will help immensely.  Don't let the bruising that will increase for some days throw you, the worst is behind you.

Tace care of yourself,

Saw Dr. Rector this morning. Told me surgery went well, bone quality was excellent and the arthritis was worse than it appeared on the x-ray. Glad we got to it now.

No PT yesterday because we got a bit behind the pain cycle. Feeling little pain today, so we'll get going on the PT today. Great breakfast, and I will remember that first cup of coffee for a long time. My lovely wife delivered Starbucks!

You all know how the catheter removal is. Wow! I think I took a swing at the nurse, who was backing away.

Excellent care here. No surprises so far.

I'm proud to be a Hippy. What a great group to be part of.

    Boomer and Jim, it is indeed a great group to be a part of, but I don't think its bad to be totally selfish on this one and say that its a great thing just for you!  It was your pain that you endured, and while the support and info is incredible here, it is YOUR hip, surgery and new lease on an active life.  Feel spoiled and enjoy!

Jim's,

The surgery was not nearly as bad as I feared. It's over in no time and no memories. Then it's just stiffness and some confusion. It starts getting better immediately. And, that God awful grinding hip pain is gone forever.

God Speed. You will like the other side.

No Danny it's not mate  ;)
The catheter was the worst part of my stay in Hospital. I remember telling the nurse that I didn't feel like my flow was as good as usual & she said that's normal, then I told another nurse, that I felt like I needed to go all the time - she said it's probably just the general anesthetic wearing off, then I told another nurse that I really still feel like I need to go all the time, so she tried another catheter bag type, next shift came in - supervisor nurse, I tell her the whole story, she finds a massive air bubble & spends the next half an hour milking (for want of a better word) me, 850 ml later oooohhhhrrr.... the relief  ::)

Congrats Boomer and welcome to the other side.  Things really get better each and every day.  The time flies by as well.  I'm almost at 4 weeks and can't believe how quickly the time went by.

As for the catheter that was the WORST experience of my life.  Keep in mind I didn't have one installed during surgery I got it when I couldn't pee the night after surgery after I fell on my face and had a CT scan etc.  I was awake when the nurse inserted it and I thought I was going to die. It still brings chills to my body thinking about it. Then the removal of it sucked but having it put in was 10000000 times worse than the removal.
