Hip Replacement Surgery Success – A Patient Story
We just received this follow-up letter from a patient who had a right hip replacement. We enjoy hearing personal accounts of our patient’s experience from start to finish. Thank you, Steve, for updating us on your progress!
I wanted to write you to thank you personally and your wonderful team at your office for your many kindnesses during my stay in Glendale. I won’t name individuals for fear of leaving somebody out.
At the head of the line is you who went out of your way to see me through the process and time in Honor Health, The Center at Arrowowhead and our stay in Debbie’s house. Your timely home visits were most appreciated. Your ongoing contact with John and Lisa helped a great deal. The members of your office team I met; Yanira and DeEtte couldn’t have been more helpful.
While the pain I experienced after the surgery came as a surprise, you’ll be happy to hear that I have been completely pain-free for about the past 10 days. The soreness in my right thigh is pretty much gone as well.
I have been working with a very good physiotherapist here who has helped me greatly increase the strength with my right leg. I whiz around the house with my walker and am moving towards the cane. I have been walking quite a bit with it this week. All in all, I am very pleased with the recovery phase and expect to be almost back to normal by month’s end. My next hurdle is getting back to driving my car!
Thanks again to you and your team for all your help.
Dave M. (85-year-old 4 weeks after right hip replacement)
