I just got my left hip replaced (total hip replaced via the Anterior Approach). I got to surgery about 11:00am and my wife said it was ONLY like an hour. Dr. Claebeaux at Virginia Mason is awesome. My pain level is very low, no narcotics, just Tylenol and Advil. I am able to walk a few labs around my first floor of my house and took a shower today and was able to go up and down the stairs. I am taking 2 weeks off of work, but with my laptop allows me to do a few things if needed.
I can’t believe it’s over. I was offered the choice of a spinal and I took that for a better overall procedure. I can’t remember a thing after I got the needle in my back, absolutely nothing!!!It was a miracle!
