Surgery Update

The surgery on Monday went pretty good.  I had some cam lesions that they repaired.  Not sure what those are.  My labrum looked good.  I have several areas of trauma to the hip where there is no cartilage at all, its bone on bone.  He said he is sure its from gymnastics.  I'll find out on the 17th what our next step is.  He also wants me to see the spine doctor, something about a crack maybe...sigh

I had quite a bit of bleeding during surgery, even after he closed me up it was still bleeding a lot.  He doesn't quite know why other than blood is made in the bones......

I have these two velcro boots and a big cylinder looking pillow.  I am supposed to be strapped in the boots and the boots strapped to the pillow thingy so as not to rotate my hip at all.  The first night it lasted from 9:30 until 11:30 before I had to go to the bathroom and then until 2:30a.m.  My husband has to put them on and off for me.  At two thirty, I said we are going to the living room.  I cannot wear those things on my feet, so I have been sleeping sitting up with a pillow. By my right leg to keep it from rotating.  Crutches are difficult for me right now.  I am also not supposed to sit at more than a 90% angle or turn the leg at all because I run the risk of popping it out of the socket.

I'll keep you updated.

Be blessed, I am!

Yikes 6 weeks on crutches sound pretty rotten but I am glad you are doing o.k. I hope you are feeling better soon! I hate being down for more then a few hours let alone weeks but I am sure you will be fine and it is the end of summer so that is good too(-:
Love the nail story(-: I love my nails done too but haven't had the extra money to do in a long time now. I do my toes myself and try to keep them looking nice.
Take care!

I've had you on my mind and in my prayers, Darla! I know it's hard, but try to do just what the doctor says. I hope you have a speedy recovery. Hugs!

Take care. A walker may be safer if you can get one for in the house. It's handy for getting up and down too where crutches don't offer much stability. Just be where ever you need to be as comfortable as possible. [hug]

OMG ! Darla girl .. I lost track of time and didn't realize you had the surgery !!
I'm sorry it is so difficult .. people don't know how much we depend on our bodies for simple things like going to the bathroom .. I know you are going to heal faster than the average person with this surgery because even though you were in pain you were in good shape and not over weight which can really complicate matters.
I'm pulling for you girl !!
Take special care and heal quickly!
Joy

Glad that the girls could do the craft show for you, and that it's going good.
