Wonderful! I'm glad and I hope you have a terrific result from your total hip replacement surgery.

Great, Aaron, let us know when you take your "first step" for real. Really hoping for a break for you; you deserve it as much as anyone I know of.

So much pain. My pain is a 6-7 even with Oxycodone, Celebrex, Gabapentin, Tylenol, and asprin all in my system at the same time. This is going to be a long night.

Aaron,

Having had three total shoulder replacements in the past (two were revisions) I was told to not be a 'John Wayne' and accept the pain. Instead they instructed me to take the meds when I was hurting. After the second replacement I happily followed their advice.

At first I always took a pain med before PT. It helped a lot.

Good luck.

I feel so sorry for you. I had that unbelievable pain when I had my first rotator cuff surgery. It will get better. This time next week you will feel so much better.

Another vote in support of being pro-active with pain meds. I had my THR about 8 months ago, and a constant theme was to stay ahead of the pain. I was taking 2 Percocet every 3-4 hours while in the hospital and had very few bouts of real pain (a constant ache, but nothing to keep me awake).

Weaned off over the course of 10 days after leaving the hospital.

Good luck. You will feel much better soon.

Poor you, all those meds at once, I hope the nurses are monitoring your O2 levels like a hawk. Your poor stomach and intestines, too! Please feel free to vent here. Rooting for you as always.

Today is day 5 post-op. I had to remove and replace my bandage so I got my first look at the scar. I have seen worse. Nothing that indicates a chance of infection. I tried to figure out how to post it but after almost an hour decided to give up. Pain in bed is still bad but during the day it's more manageable. During the day, if not having PT, I extend my Oxy dose past 4 hours and only take 1 instead of two. Progress!
