Has anyone had Total Hip Replacement lately
I will be having another THR on Sept 17th.
I had the right hip done back in 2001.
the Dr. told me I will notice a big difference in the procedure now---He said instead of a 10 in. incision it will be about 2 in. and the surgery will only take about 35 min..
recovery is quicker-----they don't have to cut the tendons and muscles---.
this time it will not be necessary to donate my own blood as there is less blood loss.
Has anyone heard anything about this new method ??
Do you know anyone who has had it.
We will be going to the hospital on Wed. for a discussion and I would appreciate any information anyone has-
I'm really sick of surgeries----first the right hip ---- then back surgery---- and now another hip---
As they say getting older is not for sissies---LOL
Thanks a heap for any information
