Thu, Aug 22 1:55pm · What about cruising post liver transplant? in Transplants

Are you sure you aren't my wife! I'm a little over 3 years on my kidney transplant and have slipped back into some of my old habits. Thankfully my wife also gets frustrated with me and tells me her thoughts. Most of the time I agree with what she's saying and concerned about. When I believe I'm correct I go ahead and eat or drink those things. Most of the time afterwards I'll find out she was actually correct but I definitely don't let her know that! For me, her thoughts and observations help remind me of the gift I've been given and to not risk my poor judgment at times. He's lucky to have you watching out for him! Are you sure that you aren't my frustrated wife venting!

Mon, Aug 5 2:11pm · Hip replacement worries - analysis paralysis in Joint Replacements

I had the anterior approach and have found it has worked fantastic. I'm 7 months out and just returned from Europe where I walked extensively every day all day. Major hills and rugged terrain that I would have never been able to do last year. I did feel sore several evenings but the soreness was gone in the morning. Prior to my hip surgery I had a kidney transplant 2 1/2 years earlier so I had been very concerned about the hip surgery. I could afford to lose some weight and make it easier on my new hip and kidney. I had both operations at the Mayo Jacksonville and couldn't be happier with the results! I didn't realize how much pain I was in until after I received the new hip. For me the anterior approach was the way to go and shortened my recovery time. I found the hardest decision was to make the decision and move forward. Good luck on your path

Recovery has gone well. Went back to traveling this week with work. At the hotel, I used the stair master and for the first time in years was pain-free. Lost some stamina but that will return. Hardest recovery aspect has been convincing my brain it won't hurt stepping with the right side. Thanks for asking

Had right hip replaced 6 weeks ago. Was very uptight and the doctors put me at ease. Much better than expected and the pain was minimal. Wish I had had the procedure much earlier!

Dec 18, 2018 · Has anyone had sharp thigh pain after hip replacement in Joint Replacements

I had THR 2 weeks ago. I too am in good shape and active. PT has been an ongoing blessing where they can challenge me and advise me on some of the issues with my form walking and exercising. I like to be pushed and challenged so this works well for me. I still have pain in various areas but find with exercising and walking the pain decreases.

Had rt hip replaced 6 days ago with an epidural and your Dr. Is correct. I can't really describe as it was all quick and like finger prick. It worked great and I'm one who is a worry wart. All is good and listening to PT, slow it all down. Good luck with your upgraded hip!

Dec 8, 2018 · Hip replacement after having had kidney transplant in Transplants

Blood work was follow up on my kidney. Making sure no issues after surgery. No real extra precautions needed although I felt much better going into the hip replacement knowing if an issue arose the kidney team was on another floor. The healing process is going better than I expected and they all continue to remind me to drink water.

Dec 6, 2018 · Hip replacement after having had kidney transplant in Transplants

Thanks, for checking in with me. Had hip replacement at Mayo Jacksonville on Tuesday after having kidney replacement in 16. Was discharged late last night and meeting today with the nurse and PT folks at home. I will be heading back to Mayo for blood work tomorrow. I love how the orthopedics and kidney teams have communicated throughout the process and continue to do so. Now my PT therapist has arrived for my first session, should be interesting.
