I know everyone out there in the blog world is anxiously waiting for an update of how my shiny new right hip is doing.... and the news is good.
A visit to the hospital this morning for a couple of x-rays and a follow-up visit with the surgeon.
I've had a giant waterproof bandaid on my leg since the surgery, with "Remove on Feb 6" written in big black letters, my own "Best Before Date". So it was carefully removed revealing a perfectly neat 4.5 inch incision held together with about 25 staples. Definitely a thing of beauty!
I was so impressed.
And that's it for today..... more x-rays and an appointment in 6 weeks. Still a bit sore, and I'm still using the walking stick for balance rather than support, but I'll soon be able to get around without it.
And the best part..... I'm OK to drive my car again!
All this in 15 days since total hip replacement surgery..... amazing.
Thank you to my surgeon, he did a great job.
