12 Month Check-Up with Dr Marwin
« on: November 13, 2012, 05:53:39 PM »
Yesrerday, I went back for my 12 month check-up.  The doctor and his assistant, Monica, we're very impressed with all my progress but not as much as me.  I can remember my trip to the Fla Keys right before surgery; my hips were on fire and my butt muscles were screaming.  The day before my surgery,I had to go to my shoulder surgeon at HSS and I didn't know which was worse; walking from Penn Station or standing on the subway.  I walked there but subwayed back. The next day, Dr Marwin's confidence was infectious; I never had a worry and it couldn't have gone better.  Having all of you encouraging me while I was in the hospital made the days fly by.  That and the beautiful NYU nurses.  Thank you everybody

And thank you, Pat, for this sight that gives patients the information and the support we all need.  Thank you, thank you

I feel so good I wish I could go back to work, but I'm 100% retired and loving it thanks to these new hips.

It has been great becoming friends with all of you, thank you all.

Woodstock you are two weeks ahead of me and served me well as both inspiration and counselor. Time flies when life is good! Glad you are ripping it again.

What's that about wishing you could go back to work again? Get a grip man!

Woody,

Congrats and best regards from the far end of NYS.  I remember thinking I could never do both at once when I read your posts this time last year, but then wished I had when it came time for #2, 4 months later.  Certainly inspirational, and helps me visualize retirement along similar lines, which I couldn't before the BHR's.

Sounds like you are having an incredible time doing whatever you want in retirement, and enjoying the Catskills and down near the city, with out restrictions, and with shiny new hips.  Fantastic stuff.

Best regards,

Dan

Thank you Dan,  when Dr Boetner at HSS told me that I should get THR and learn to relax I thought "that's not what I want in my retirement."  I went about 30 blocks south to NYU Joint Disease and Dr Marwin and the staff made all this possible.  At NYU they had a plan for my recovery. Nine days in the hospital isn't so bad when you are able to walk out using only a cane after Bilaterals.  They taught me how to get in the car and the bath tub for a shower, how to get on the toilet and I never needed a raised seat, in and out of the chair, the stairs, the bed, all the things the other hospitals don't think of.  I cringe when I see Bilateral patients getting booted out of HSS after 3 days wondering how they will get in the car or sitting in a NYC hotel room waiting to feel good enough for the flight home.

It was all a positive for me.  As a very active person, I never wanted to retire, but I've got to say that I'm having the time of my life.  Right now I'm in Waikiki waiting for it to get light out so my wife and I can go for a run.  That's what I did this for.

Thanks a lot again.
