  1. Well, it's been a week since I went in and had my right hip replaced. I'm home and dealing with the pain nicely with my oxycodone prescription. the sutures itch like crazy and my leg muscles are always stiff.

    for the surgery they put me to sleep and gave me an epidural. there were a couple of times during the procedure that I regained enough conciousness to hear them working on me. quite fun. the first nite after the surgery I was "kept comfortable" with morphine. fun in a different way.

    so now I'm home, walking on crutches. can't really bend over yet. for the first six weeks you can't bend over 90 degrees, so I have to use special tools to put on sock and shoes and pants. can't wait till all the precautions are over.

      As in you could hear the surgeons talking amongst themselves? Or do you mean you got the chance to hear them drilling your hip apart piece by piece?

      That would be totally metal.

      Sounds like you're well on your way to becoming a cyberdemon. Congrats! When do you get the rocket launcher?

      as in I heard them reaming my acetabulum and hearing the sounds of hammer tapping on metal as they rasped my femur. it was very metal.

      btw, here is a pic of my wound. I put a bic pen next to it for scale.




      ::edit:: just discovered today that because of my hip replacement my right leg is now longer than my left. it was a risk that was pointed out to me so it wasn't totally unexpected, but nonetheless sucks.
