I just went in Friday, got a new hip, and am back in my own home tonight (Sunday). It is just amazing where modern medicine has gone.

I even made dinner.Biggrin

Bob, I'm really glad that all went okay for you. Stay well and don't drive that lovely wife of yours crazy with, "Oh honey, my hip; would you please get me a cool drink?" "Oh sweetie, my hip; would you please peel me a grape?" Wink

All kidding aside, all the best for a very speedy recovery. It sounds as if you're well on the way to just that. Thumbsup

My mother had hip replacement about a year before she passed away. She was actually in the hospital as a result of a stroke, the left side of her body was about 70% paralyzed and she was in inpatient rehab for a month to regain some mobility. Long story short, 3 days before she was scheduled to come home, one of the interns let her fall during a transfer from the bed to her chair for lunch and she broke her hip, this requiring her to remain in the hospital for another 2 weeks.

She healed fairly quickly but it was hard trying to stop her from crossing her legs and she had to use a rather large, triangular shaped foam pillow strapped to her legs while sleeping to keep them aligned and she hated it with a passion. She never did fully get over it though and kept having hip pains.

Sounds like you're having a much better go at it, good luck on the recovery!

My wife has had one hip and one knee replacement, and says the knee is the harder to recover from. More pain involved. Just do exactly what they tell you and you will be back to 100% in no time.

All the best to you.

Byron, sorry about your mom. Mine went through something very similar before she died. It was hard to see.

As for me, they tried to keep me in compression socks with one of those foam things strapped between my legs. I finally told the nurse to take that stuff off or I would. They do warn you a lot though about dislocating the new joint. Apparently it's easy to do.

that's awesome..

I have been delaying rotator cuff repair because the rehab is reported to take up to year even though I am in killer condition.

Does your doctor do shoulders?

Hi Mike, I don't blame you for your delay. It is all pretty spooky. Mine was so bad that he chuckled when I said that I wanted to wait till Medicare set in, so I figured I would do it before summer.

He's one of the best around and does a lot of work on OSU athletes (women's soccer, men's gymnastics...).

All the best for a speedy recovery, sir! My Mother-in-Law had a second hip replacement a week past Friday. It's just a dang pity I couldn't afford the bribe to have her tongue removed as well. Boy, that's a wicked tongue.....Smiley_1140
