Freedom, not being stuck at home, it's over, I'm able to get out into the world and do what an oldfart does.
Yesterday I had my 6 week checkup from my hip replacement, it was great, I'm cleared to drive and my precautions have been cancelled. The precautions for a hip replacement are; 1. Do not cross your legs. 2. Do not bend past 90 degrees. 3. Do not turn the leg very much. Right after the surgery, if you do any of these things you very likely will dislocate the joint, that means taking the joint out and putting it back where it belongs, results; up to a year in a cast. I will still be conscious of them and there won't be any sudden moves for quite a while.
It feels good to be back driving and able to go places while my wife is working.
Caution!!! caution!!! OLDFART ON THE LOOSE!!! Caution!!! Caution!!!

Glad to hear you're on the mend and can get out some. That has to be a huge relief. Sounds like some painful stuff!

That's awesome news Rodney :toot: My mother had hip surgery on both sides. Right went great but the other side (I think she got cocky about it because the first one went so well) popped out 3 times and she had to have a part of it replaced again. She's doing well now..
