Default SIL is doing okay

Thank you all so much for your prayers. My SIL finally got in a room early evening after surgery. Today she was up and in a chair for a little bit....and has been sleeping ever since!! I'm pretty sure she will be down in PT tomorrow. Praying her hip replacement will help her pain.

Thanks for the update! I was thinking about her today and wondering how she is doing. I'm glad she's gotten it behind her now. How's her BP today?

It's back down to normal, Pam. The doctor was going to just do an epidural(sp?) yesterday, but decided to knock her out completely....good choice!! From what I understand she was given something to calm her down for a bit before putting her under. Just praying she will do what they tell her to do.

That's good to hear. It was probably the anxiety that made it go so high. I hope she will do as she's told. I had shoulder surgery a few years ago and the PT was the hardest part...and trying to sleep. But I worked through it, although it was very painful, and I'm so glad I did. It's finally almost like new. There were times I wanted to give up and she may too, but try to encourage her if she does want to give up to keep doing what she's supposed to and she'll be so glad she did. Remind her the rehab time is only temporary.

WHAT ?????????? an epidural for hip replacement ???????????? are they crazy ? what kind did she had ? there are 2 different ways to do them now, one from the front who is supposed to be less invasive and the normal one. I had mine done in 2006 and my orthopedic surgeon (Dr Robert Koshman in Houston) did it the old fashion way because he wanted to "see what he is doing". I don't remember having pain after surgery, I had an ice machine on my hip to keep it from swelling. They started me walking the day after surgery. I thought they were nuts. They prescribed pain medicine when I went home but I never took it.

So glad she was able to get the surgery. My neighbor had two done at one time and she is doing great and my two friends both had surgery 3 weeks ago and are doing really well with PT. Tell her to hang in there.

Doing the exercises is very important. She will be up and running a lot faster if she sticks to them. And she has to do them EVERY DAY at home, not only when going to the physical therapy.

She ended up being put totally under which I thought was much better. Could not imagine being awake while someone was replacing my hip!! I'll continue updates here. Hopefully tomorrow she'll start PT!

Two at one time, Wow, I don't know. Hard part for me was the difficulty to turn around in bed to lay on my good side. After a while you get tired to lay on your back. Now with both hips done you are stuck laying on your back for quite a while.

I'm so glad she is resting comfortably. Lifting up a healing prayer.
