The summer of 2017 I did yard work and gardening with unbelievable pain. I was a very miserable 76 year old woman. On October 3rd, Dr. Owen O'Neill and Jessie performed minimal anterior hip replacement surgery. The next day I left the hospital and walked into my house using the handrail to take three steps. Two days later, the walker and cane were put in storage because I didn't need them. Tylenol was used for pain relief for the week following surgery just so I could sleep better. One week after surgery I drove to the grocery store and did several errands. Six weeks after surgery, I enjoyed an eleven day Panama Canal Cruise, walking to islands or from one end of the ship to the other on sea days. I ate lots of food but lost five pounds because I was so active.
Other positive results after surgery:
- My replaced hip feels like my original but pain free.
- I now sleep six or seven hours a night instead of three or four.
- People say I now look happy but before surgery I had a painful look.
