    Out of commission

    Hi guys and girls,
    On this Tuesday 1/8, I will be going in for hip replacement surgery. I will probably be out of commission for a week. I will have limited access to the internet so any issues with the forum you can contact Leeca, Joe Ratman or Tony.

    Hope everyone had a Happy New!

    ~Ken

    Best wishes for a speedy recovery. A friends mother just got one, unexpectedly, due to a fall, but she was up and walking a two days or less, and she is quite old. So you should do great.

    Re: Out of commission

    Guys, thank you so much for your thoughts!
    Being in so much pain this year, I’m looking forward to being “fixed”....
    What blows my mind is how much the medical profession has changed when facing these types of surgeries in the last few years. They take no chances in regards to infections and others issues anymore which is a good thing.... :-)

    Re: Out of commission

    I’m back home!
    Wow, the pain is terrible but I keep telling myself, it’s all for the better. ????
    They kept me an extra night due to my heart rate dropping to 40-45 bpm while in surgery and dropped to 39 bpm that night. Apparently, they have a rapid response team and before you knew it, I had 12 medical staff members in our room. This was probably caused by me taking my a blood pressure meds the morning of and the anesthesia effects still lingering. The cardiologist came in the next morning and did an EKG, which was perfect, and said that my bpm rose to 82!

    Now comes the long healing process. 4-6 weeks of no driving. Looks like, for this first time in like 30 years, I’ll be watching the Superbowl at home. ???? No alcohol for at least 2 weeks and certain movements are forbidden.

    Well, I found a new use to my 18R2 seahorse case. I need to be seated up higher and my PT looked in my garage and said this is a perfect fit for my chair. OMG, I never thought of that. Works like a charm folks! ????????????
    See Scott, your product can be used for many different options. :-)
