Hi! I've recovered from the hip surgery-went well, except the nerve block they used to control post-op pain paralyzed the leg--a side effect they had warned me of. Also, it took me a day to come out of anesthesia, which they had been warned about, so my hospital stay was 4 days, which, compared to a traditional hip was amazing. Foolishly I opted to go to a skilled care facility instead of a rehab facility a I thought I would need a longer time as I can only use one arm for support (I used a forearm crutch when needed). As it was I was out in about 10 days and didn't need the crutch once I went home.
