So I have been off this board for a while. The reason is i had total hip replacement surgery about two weeks ago. I am finally getting to the point where I can sit at the desk in front of the computer. I am still not quite ready to go back to work. I miss it and I am looking forward to being able to work without pain.
Been gone for a while
No, just my left one. I suffered from a slipped capital femoral epiphysis which means over time I developed severe arthritis in that hip. It was so bad I could barely walk at the end of shift and the only place I could sit comfortably was in my recliner. Now I don't have that pain anymore.
Was it not awesome waking up in PACU and feeling that relief?
Yeah the surgical pain still has to be delt with but at least you know it will go away.
I was so relieved after my first lumbar fusion that I started crying with relief.
Home in 2 days.
The second time around....not so much.
But the hip felt better right?
