I had my LTHR on April 20, 2000. I was so scared but had been in pain for 1 1/2 years. Surgery went great! Had a spinal and sedation and don't remember anything until I woke up. Pain was miniumal the first day and stopped morphine drip on the 2nd day. Home after 3 days and very nervous. Each day shows improvement. After 5 weeks I am using a cane only once in awhile around the house. Drove for the 1st time and ran some errands. I have my life back. Just wish I could tie my shoes. I'm very nervous about disslocation so I am overly cautious. I am wondering, if there is a position to put the new hip in to tie ones shoes? I never could have gotten through this without the help and support from this web site. THANK YOU!
