Apologies for a quiet few days but it has been an intense time. Overall way better experience than the first hip replacement.
Have been walking on frame for 4 days now and crutches for two days.
Respiratory has been the issue. Have ended up with a chest infection of the “nasty little” variety. Several days of raised temperatures but not high 38.4C. Had a chest X-ray.
Seem I have a combination bronchitis mild pneumonia, and some pulmonary emboli. Red sputum etc.
Coming out the other side. Enjoying WAY better mobility with the Zimmer Ceramic on ceramic revision system. Will post a photo of the X-ray when I can.
I know I am in the slow lane for hip replacements but I am in the fast lane for complex revisions.
Here is a photo of the stapled wound area.
