    Hip Replacement---Strides in Modern Medicine

    I had a minimally invasive hip replacement yesterday morning about 10am and was up walking in about 5 hours...
    I was discharged about 6 last evening and home by 8...I have 2 incisions---one about 4 " and the other about 2"...
    3 and 1/2 years ago I had the other hip done and had a 10 1/2 incision, was in the hospital for 3 days...
    my doctor has been doing this procedure for 14 years and is known statewide...

    I would appreciate your prayers for a great healing experience ...

      How wonderful to be up and around so soon. Glad you were able to get it done as minimal invasive. I had a total hip replacement about 5 years ago and it took a long time to recover. After I healed, I felt like a new person. I will pray for a quick and uneventful recovery.

        Walk in peace with the Lord by your side.

            Fantastic!!!

            I need a wrist replacement, but I'm holding out as long as possible!! That was the advice of the doctor who last reconstructed my arm in 2001. He told me to wait until I was done riding horses, having kids, and at least 20 years for progress... 2/3 of the way there, though he did such a great job that I don't quite feel it much anymore. Now it's the rotator cuff on the dominant side that's starting to go....

            rest and let the body heal, it takes time.

                    Carol, I talked to my pain management doctor today about what could be done for my trochanteric bursitis in both hips, and he said a hip replacement. That kind of surprised me because when I went to a hip surgeon, he sent me to a spine specialist and said my hips didn't need replacement. I may be facing MRIs in both hips. It sure would be nice to be able to stand and walk more than three minutes without being in excruciating pain.

                    Prayers and vibes for a successful and rapid healing from your surgery.

                      That is so encouraging!! I need one done and have been avoiding doctors like the plague.

                              I am amazed that they have honed their surgery techniques to this! Hope you continue to have a speedy recovery.
                              I am looking at having the joint in my big toe fused. They say the recovery time is months!
                              It's hard to accept that a major joint like a hip is a much easier operation than a small toe joint, but I guess the small size is the problem.
