1826 Days Ago

Belated Happy 5th Birthday to my bionic right hip.  I had the surgery on the day after the 2012 Presidential Election (Wednesday, 07 November 2012). It’s gone through countless miles on the treadmill and exercise bike along with all of the daily stuff that requires its services.  And it has yet to register any complaints.

Post-Op, Day 37

I had my second post-op checkup today.  All is going well.  Next checkup is in six weeks or so.  In interim, it’s more twice-a-week physical therapy sessions and daily exercises at home.

I’m still using the cane but am becoming less and less dependent on it.  I expect within the next two weeks or so I will be able to put the cane back into retirement.

I’m back on my treadmill now and am gradually increasing the speed and slope to get back to where I was prior to the right hip replacement.

My next big goal is to be able to tie the shoelaces on my right shoe.

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.
