Thumbs up Re: Wish me Luck

Best of Luck! You will not regret it. I just had my right hip resurfaced on Monday (Jan. 12) and I've been home since Wed. (Jan 14) afternoon going about my business on crutches with very little pain. Keep us posted on your recovery.
Best
Manny

Re: Wish me Luck

Hi good people first day back on pc after hip resurface and may i say how well the op went even tho i woke up after ten mins on the table ..lol but stayed awake and spoke to surgeon all way through the op and reaped the benefits after the op with no drowsyness or nausea after (even had lunch back on ward ) Am really impressed with the speed in which you become more and more mobile in the days after the op and am now (2 weeks after) going for medium walks with the aid of one crutch. First physio appt is next monday so heres hoping i continue with the spped in which i am . Only downside was because i had previously had a dvt some 18 years ago a lot of notice was taken of my blood and that is being more of a pain than the hip ...just cant seem to get INR level right so its a injection of heparin everyday plus 7.5 mg of warfarin each day until they can stabalise .

Re: Wish me Luck

good to hear from you and happy all went well... have fun at PT, if they are like here inthe USA they will work you and want you to "push" yourself - thats a good thing - but know when to stop and rest!
