I'm totally hip and going back to work

  1. I'm 14weeks post R total hip replacement and I'm going back to work Monday. Me and my new hip are gettin along just fine.
    I'm a little nervous about going back to my busy little ER, hopefully I can handle it. My biggest obstacle will be trying to put my support pantyhose on. I better practice before Mon. I also found a support board with tons of other younger folks who have new hips. Very helpful and informative. Thanks to all who wished me well earlier on.
    Hip Hip Hooray I'm doin OK!

    Great to see all went well kaycee
    A colleague of mine had her hip replacement last year and feels like a new woman. Had about the same amount of time off and went back to work in her ER job. Says she feels it is much easier than before the op, when she was having so much pain, but would not be keen on ward work as much more distance to cover.

    Good luck with the support hose

    Good luck on your return to work, Kaycee. My neighbor had his hip replaced and after about 6 months he regreted he'd lived so long with pain. I hope you are soon 110% fixed up now.
