Here I am on day 10 of a projected 42 day recovery.
I was in the hospital for 6 days -- longer then anticipated because my blood pressure kept crashing whenever I tried to get up. Why? Guesses -- anesthesia sensitivity? narcotic/pain reliever sensitivity? fluid imbalance due to surgery? laying in bed too much? Probably all of the above.
But I'm home now. Using a cane. The OA pain is gone, and though it is much improved,the BP issues hang on. Better -- but I have to moniter my wooziness so I don't overdo. My adrenal glands are fine and I'm doing my in-home exercises. I'm not cleared for out patient PT, (Oh I wish!) but I have home exercises and a home visit from a therapist a couple of days ago and scheduled for later this morning.
Onward and upward!
