tips following new hip replacement
After 18 months classed a urgent high priority but suitable for private transfer I have been done at a private hospital a two hour drive from home! My new surgeon was totally unimpressed at the state of my hip and said quite frankly it is the worst he has ever had to replace!
Day 4 after my right hip replacement home on day 2. Bruising starting to come out and lots swelling around knee, coping would be the word but looking for advice, was given a raised toilet seat, absolutely the most painful thing to use and have to have someone stabilising my zimmer when lower and rising . Has anyone bought there own alternative and if so what and where from please, need some solutions as will also need the other hip replacing fairly soon.
Have lost my sense of humour at the moment so god knows what clown came up with these seats as easy to use haha
Any other tips gratefully received as feeling very anxious and stressed that doing the wrong thing, moving wrong way ect.
