Well, I’m officially a HIPPY!!!! I had successful BHR on my Rt. hip this past Tuesday 12/6. I’m currently pain free and walking with one crutch for support only!!!!! I was up and about the day after surgery bothering the nurses on the floor! The PT and the Occupational Therapist were quiet amazed. I stopped the Percocets already and use Tylenol only at night.
I am only 45 and in decent shape. The BHR is amazing. Dr. Feldman in Englewood, NJ has got to be one of the top BHR surgeons in the US! My femoral head was extremely misshapen. He was able to reshape it and get the leg length perfect. He is BHR trained and now teaches other Orthopedics the procedure. He is as good as Dr. Su, I assure you!
I get a bit light-headed when sitting up or standing for too long however. This is to be expected I’m sure. I’m an active person, so now I just have to figure out how to get thru the next number of weeks, is all. I really want to start doing some upper body weight work. I am only 5 days post op, however. If anyone has any questions that I could help with, free free to post. All I got is time!!!!
