Surgery Today!

If you have read my post Inconceivable Times this post is a follow-up.

By the time you read this, I will have already been wheeled in and out of surgery. My appointment with the surgeon on Tuesday left me with a number of forms, pre-operation fees and, a very clear understanding of what is going on and what is going to happen. It’s all been rushed because there was a cancellation which was offered to me so it could be done ASAP.

I will need hip replacements in perhaps a year or five but that will be to far off to leave the gluteus medius muscle unattached. This surgery is called the “right hip abductor repair”. I will be in hospital for 2-3 weeks with a further 6 weeks of non-weight bearing at home with extensive rehabilitation.

Once I’m through the worst of the post surgery drowsiness and pain medication, I hope to be back using my laptop in my hospital bed if not for much else than reading some of my favourite WordPress bloggers posts. You may even get a post-op photo of the 20cm -30cm incision for the more bolder followers. 😉

I have pre-scheduled daily posts so you don’t miss me too much. 🙂

  1. Norm here. An update on the surgery. The surgeon is very confident that he has repaired the thigh muscles after he found that the tendon on the outer muscle only had 20% still connected to the bone. This was not shown in the MRI and meant a more complicated procedure. Chrissy is recovering very well and will have something like 2-3 weeks in hospital followed by 6 weeks recuperating at home. The key to the recovery to not to apply weight through the right leg.
    She is in good spirits and is fully aware of the surgeon’s guidance.
    Thank you to all who have been supporting Chrissy through prayers and support. Norm
