    First post surgery Dr check up : staples out , incision looks great , cleared for hospital based PT this week , can ditch home hospital bed and move back upstairs . Range of motion and endurance good , can go on cane now if i want .

    Only knee swelling which is normal cellular fluid after a surgery so continue exercises and walking and will see him for xrays in a month , expect to be driving at that time since it is the RIght hip. We are all pleased with progress , basic bone structure is strong , doc said i'll be skiing for sure

    Cheers, warp! Own those stairs! You'll be walking right out of that cane in no time - I realized I'd reached a milestone when I kept leaving the damn thing places and losing it

    I go back for my 6 month visit next month

    Update 3 wks post surgery :
    Walked without cane or walker today for the first time
    Great mobility with the cane , can dress myself now
    Sleeping upstairs now in regular bed
    Range of motion improving ,can do squats similar to a half tuck position in skiing , legs wait lifts , leg lateral spreads walking over 2000 ft/day , able to o go for car rides easily , getting into ,out of cars and up down stairs no problems

    Stood unassistd to play my guitars for about an hr today , took breaks in a chair every several songs to rest ...feeling pumped !!

    Still some swelling but leg and knee definition is really bouncing back ..stiffness is still only real issue but ROM exercises are helping.

    Let us know when your wife can no longer outrun you. Good for you, bad for her
    Just kidding. All the best for a quick and full recovery. Any number of us will be going through the same procedure sometime down the line!

    Glad to hear your recovery is going so well Warp. I wish I could say the same of my Dad's. I'm in the hospital with him now, we're awaiting a surgery to clean out a Staph infection in his hip. We were presented two options. The first is to open up the hip, clean out the infection, then six weeks interveinous antibiotics. He would then have to take oral antibiotics for the remainder of his life.

    The second option is to remove the implant, put in a spacer, treat the infection, then put a new replacement in after the infection has cleared.

    They've decided to go with option one. On the up side, he's no longer showing the bacteria in his blood samples. We'll see how it goes. Hopefully he'll survive the surgery. If not, I'm proud of the effort he's put in these last three months, and I'm grateful for the opportunity to get closer to him.
    Leave no turn unstoned!

    Finished formal PT today , balanced on a tramp in a FULL TUCK skiing position , full 90 degree ROM on leg where new hip is , did several one legged balances on a balance board blindfolded while the PT randomly nudged me from various angles to try to upset balance . , followed. By hr on the three machines was doing 3.5 mph on the tread .

    only issue now is residual ache near the groin , low level ache . cOmpletwly off cane , able to easily fo upstairs and have been driving for 2 weeks . Soooo now its gym time on my own and some special stretch routines and leg lifts to work out the groin thing .

    monday after thanksgiving i take first x rays since surgery to see progress on bone and tissue development around the titanium hip implant

    my pts have marceled about progress to date .....attitude is. Everything !!L
