Hi there all you nepacrossroader's
I'm doing really good. I was in the Paoli hospital from 3/27/13, 10:15 AM. I went into the operating room at 11:30 AM & was done at 2:30 PM. I almost begged my orthopedic surgeon to save me my femoral head but I guess that's not allowed anymore. So he did the next best thing and took 2 pictures of it. Once I figure out how to post the pictures I will do that. I did put my new hip in as my avatar though. I left Paoli hospital on Saturday the 30th of March at 1:30 PM to go to Spring Mill rehab hospital in Phoenixville, Pa. I was there for 2 full weeks. I'm glad I went there because I had PT & OT every single day. They didn't try to force me to do the no pain no gain even once. Everyone one was really nice too.
Since we are in the middle of selling the house I live in near Philadelphia Pa & moving to the new house in the Pocono mountains near Stroudsburg Pa I had my son drive me up here to get better with my wife who had a total knee revision on 3/13/13. I went from the massive change of my mind from chicken to actually doing it to the happiness of doing it to the feeling of my right leg was in a bucket of wet cement to worrying about my wife and how she was doing + my daughter hurting her ankle. Also I have narcolepsy & the extra tiredness from an operation made me
If my other hip would ever need to be replaced I would do it the first chance I could.
