I'm home! Woo~! :headbang:

Yes, surgery was only four days ago. I'm still home. :wave: I'm also only using paracetamol and icepacks for painkillers, because the oxycodone they were giving me made me throw up all the time... and I feel AWESOME. My surgeon says most of his patients have pain levels lower than pre-surgery three weeks after having a hip replacement; I hit that benchmark on day two. Seriously, guys, if you ever need a hip replacement, find a surgeon who does the anterior approach MEDACTA technique.

He also stuck an arthroscope into my knee on that side to see what's going on in there; the verdict is apparently that it's stuffed, but it's a fixable sort of stuffed, so that's going on the list to be taken care of. It should also be better now that I'm not walking like Quasimodo because of the hip! I'm using crutches; I can walk just fine without them, but the crutches provide stability, slow me down to prudent speeds, and also make sure I don't fall back into the Quasimodo lurch out of force of habit.

Milne, fingers crossed! Here's hoping your surgery goes as well as mine!

Great news, I'm glad your surgery was successful and you are feeling better!!!! Life is better pain free (or severely reduced).

Congrats Mel, hopefully you'll be dancing in no time. The knee just need cleaned out to set the arthritis back a while? My uncle had them clean both of his knees out and seemed to work well.

The phrase he's using is "surgical realignment", which I think does boil down to "tidying up in there" XD

It definitely needs some tidying up... saw the before and after pictures from my uncle's clean up and it was rather gross.

Actually I have found out some more about what my surgeon is planning, and... it's not tidying up in there. Noooo. What he means is a procedure called "tibial osteotomy". Basically all the cartilage damage in my knee is on one side, so the plan is to slice a wedge of bone out of my tibia right below the knee, to tilt the joint so my weight rests on the other side (where I still have good cartilage). Apparently it does a good job of giving people several more years with a functioning knee!

Also, I'm feeling ridiculously smug right now, because at my first out-of-hospital followup meeting with the surgeon he first complimented me on my progress (I'm down to using one crutch) and then told me the surgery was difficult because I have "surprisingly muscular" legs. :headbang:

I am so glad your recovery is progressing well. You deserve to be smug and proud too.
So the surgeon just needs to tweak your knee a bit :lol:
You'll be back in the game in no time.
