Post-Op, Day 12

I had my first post-op checkup today:

  • X-Rays showed all the bionic stuff is good to go
  • Removed metal staples from incision and replaced with butterfly bandages
  • Don’t need to wear the  T.E.D. stockings any longer.

There’s one more week of at-home physical therapy left to go and then I switch over to twice-a-week outpatient therapy for about 6 weeks.

Post-Op, Day 5

So far, so good.   I had my right hip replacement surgery on November 7th.  All went well and my hospital stay ended on November 9th.

I’m recovering at my daughter an son-in-law’s house for the next two weeks or so. Two weeks of in-home physical therapy and visiting nurses sticking needles into me have begun.  And last but not least, I’m wearing T.E.D. stockings, which are to say the least, a Royal PITA.

My New Right Hip

If you are reading this post, you probably know whether your candidate will be President of the United States for the next four years (unless there is another outbreak of “hanging chads”). And, I am probably in INOVA Fair Oaks Hospital getting a “bionic” right hip to match my three year old bionic left hip.
