What to do after multiple surgeries from hip replacement?
Hi I need some help and don't know where to go or what to do! I'm 63 and on June 15th I had a total Hip replacement and since then I've had 5 surgeries in 8 weeks? I've had a few surgeries and never had a problem before I heal really fast and well. The first one was going well but a couple days later I new something was wrong I couldn't put any weight on it, they did a cat scan and my bone was broken the Dr said they might of hit it on the operating table, so they went in and put in a longer stem and cemented it in. After about3-4 days I woke up in bed and couldn't move, I had to have an ambulance come and get me. Then a few days later I can't get up again this time my Hip is out of the joint! the Dr then told me I had an infection and they needed to go in and clean it out, so they did and then they told me that didn't work and I had to have it removed and put an temporary Hip in and get infectious disease Infusion for bacteria so now that is what I'm doing! The Medicine is making me sick and at first it wasn't doing what they wanted, now it's starting to work supposedly. I have suffered so much in the last 2 months and I don't feel there's ever going to be an end of this! Does anyone know what other options I have? Or been here before? Thanks Hip2022
