Been away, checking in
So work was incredibly busy, I was planning to do a bilateral total knee replacement, and then my right hip went from asymptomatic to worthless and nearly intolerably uncomfortable within about 2 weeks.

Dealing with all that, I have been gone from here.

Just stopped by to give an update:

Still 100% compliant after 7 months.

Getting my total hip replacement on Aug 19th (9 days). Anterior approach which offers the strong possibility of an "outpatient procedure" where I get to go home that day (or perhaps the next morning if we start late.)

Anterior approach requires few restrictions on physical mobility unlike the other methods which are fairly restrictive about flexion etc. for the first 6 months or so, and take longer to get out of the hospital and rehab in general.

Trying to get healthy quickly then to go back for the new knees. Smile

Hoping all of you here -- especially all my old friends -- are doing incredibly well and improving your health every day!
Sweet Dreams,

Sleep study AHI: 49 RDI: 60 -- APAP 10-11 w/AHI: 1.5 avg for 7-days (up due likely to hip replacement recovery)

Hi Herbm... I asked about you in the Off-topic forum.

I was wondering where my Windows expert was.
Glad you're back on the air. Now, I have a million questions about W7....

Sorry to hear about your joint issues, and was hoping it was fun stuff keeping you away.

Strictly personal opinion on my part? Hips are way easier to rehab than knees are, and shoulders are the worst in my book.

I ride a recumbent trike, and was actually riding it 2-3 miles daily my third week post-op after my right hip. (Big thing is to measure hip and knee angles to make sure they are not too great for the new joint). I bet you will get the new hip, and get it rehabbed before I stop whining about my second new knee (3+ weeks post-op).

Best wishes on the new parts!
