YouTube Surgery: Total Hip Replacement

May 12, 2009 § 9 Comments

My father-in-law had a total hip replacement a few weeks ago. I’m glad he didn’t watch this video before his surgery. This is why I usually remove all OR sound from my videos and have my pictures show actual surgery and not just a big red blur with metal instruments in it…

This game, on the other hand, was very educating.

    I’m a 43yr old female.. I had my right hip replaced 4 weeks ago… I totally under estimated how traumatic the surgery was on my body… I spent a week in hospital and was quite unwell. I would say the constipation after surgery was far far worse than the pain in my hip !!

    I am now on the road to recovery… I have progressed well and quickly too…I could walk up and down the road on crutches within days of being home.. I am mindfull of not over doing it…

    I need the other side replacing too… but need to fully recover from this first… I do now think bring it on ! .. I know what to expect and although it is horrible for the first week or so… it’s worth it in the end…

    p.s…I only managed to watch this video for a few seconds…I am too squeemish!
