However the short answer is that my ANTERIOR Hip Replacement was done as an OUTPATIENT -- went home the SAME day with practically 0 pain. (Total actual pain was literally 1/2 second on the 3 night post-op when I sneezed.) Going back for bilateral knee replacement, BTKR, and likely will just take the machine as is typically recommended -- though I MIGHT make that as an OUTPATIENT as well.
Sleep study AHI: 49 RDI: 60 -- APAP 10-11 w/AHI: 1.5 avg for 7-days (up due likely to hip replacement recovery)
