I am finally back home from surgery on my left hip. I got back home last Friday around 2:30 pm The time I spent in hospital seemed to go very fast. Basically I got up in the morning around seven a.m. washed up at the side of the bed. Around 8 a.m. we had to do our physio, about 30 minutes . Then it was time to rest about 30 minutes and then get ready for breakfast. After breakfast it was time to rest up for lunch, around 11:30 a.m. we went for lunch had a good visit with our other hip & knee patients.
After lunch we had a quick rest and it was time to have afternoon physio, 30 minutes later it was time for a nice long rest. Then it was time for supper, more time to visit with the friends we have made in hospital. Around seven p.m. it was time to wash up for the evening and having a good night sleep. Everyday I noticed that I was getting stronger, it is funny how quickly we weaken from the injuries, when we go in for surgery. I was glad that I did some weight lifting 2 months before surgery until I went in . Other wise I would have had way more problems, moving around in bed and from stretcher to bed. In physio they tested me to see if I was able to do stairs, well with all the workout I did at home, I was able to do stairs with flying colors. Well I am so glad that I am home and getting stronger all the time. I thought that I would have more pain from my hip but thank God, the only pain so far is from the large cut that was made to get at my hip bones. I am still on some heavy duty pain meds, duing the day I only use half of what I need at night. They will soon be gone and I will have to do with some light pain meds. I hope that soon I will not need and pain meds at all. Enough for now. I will talk with all of you later. Have a great week.
