Hip Surgery for the dog

Post by smokindog » November 30th, 2009, 5:49 pm

Hey guys! I know I haven't been around that much lately , lots of stuff going on here at the dog house.
I'm going to report to the Saint Frances East side hospital for a total right hip replacement at 0600 in the morning :shock:
I should be home Thursday or Friday. Like I told Roy...That's one Helluva way to take a vacation :lol: I'm just going to consider this a sabbatical with OT :D
The surgery should take about one hour. They use a spinal block and lots versed. In other words I just won't give a crap :lol:
I should be able to log on with my old lap top through the hospital wi-fi. If not I will log in this week-end :D

All the very best, Ken, hope the op's a 100% success. I'm pretty sure it will be - you're one of the "hippest" guys I know! Sorry, bad pun, couldn't resist - but sincerely, I hope everything goes well! You'll be back playing the blues before you know it.

:D :D :D

Best of luck Ken. It should be interesting to read your posts from the hospital when you're all hoped up on pain meds. :wink:

I used to work in an OR. seen a few hip replacements.
make sure they get it even. you don't want one leg longer than the other.
you end up walking in circles.
best wishes for a speedy recovery.

Does that mean that if you need a left hip replacement, you check in to the West side :lol:

Best of luck Ken

Hope all goes well with your op Ken, and here's wishing you a speedy recovery

Hi Ken, I hope it all went well. Let us know when you get back how it went.
