    Not even CLOSE! It's just too much to get my left foot on and off the clutch dependably.

    I was driving after 6 weeks, even though the hospital told me 12 weeks.
    Bear in mind I had my right hip done first and over here we use the right foot for the accelerator

    We use the right foot for the accelerator, too. It's positioned just off center of the vehicle.
    Kuli has a manual transmission in his truck.

    Gotta make sure the wound is completely healed there, bud.

    If the truck will start without the clutch down and in gear, you might be able to drive it without using the clutch. Turn the ignition off, put it in first and start it. Then shift into second and the rest of the gears at the right time.

    I had two rear-wheel-drive cars with hydraulic clutches, and with each one the exhaust pipe, just off the exhaust manifold, broke off and burned through the hose.

    I drove each one without the clutch for about a week each, then forever after, just to show off.

    They've got the tolerances on the clutch tighter than they used to -- I've tried driving it without the clutch and it's a lot tougher than with older vehicles.

    But it won't start without the pedal all the way to the floor.

    Though at the moment it won't start at all -- the AC clutch froze up today, stopping that wheel, which then burned through the belt. My after-surgery helper is out playing with it right now; the idea is to see if someone makes a belt the right length to bypass the AC. (Yeah, it's one of the ridiculous rigs with one belt for all the different toys under the hood.)

    Re: I got a new hip

    I thought I'd posted here....

    yesterday Bammer was a but in the way when I tried to turn on the bed, so I took a tumble -- fortunately, I landed on the bed, but it still banged up the hip a bit. The impact wasn't too bad; the real problem was that my leg got thrown out to the side farther than it really should yet.

    Now I need to hear from the doc... I think they stitched up the ligament capsule that encloses the top of the femur, but I'm not sure; I need to know if I could have torn something.

    Meanwhile, the sutures are falling out! That means within the week I should be able to soak in a tub again -- and go to the pool for some horizontal, gravity-reduced exercise.

    Kuli,
    Good luck finding a serpentine belt that fits bypassing the AC - unless the vehicle was available w/out AC.

    Sorry to hear about your fall from Bammer being a bit too comfortable.

    I hope everything works out OK.

    Hurrah! I found water based exercise most beneficial, once you get in the water, of course

    I really shouldn't blame Bammer; he was just being close to his papa. But now I make sure I have a full two-and-a-half foot clear zone before coming in for a landing.


    No reply on my inquiry about the stitches yet.

    Didn't you say somewhere, Kuli, that you're now less painful than before the surgery? You have reached a milestone!

    May you keep noticing improvements, too.

    Re: I got a new hip

    I rode my regular bike today, four whole blocks!

    Getting on definitely works best from a high curb, even with the dropped top frame bar. And I have no climbing power at all -- even the hump crossing the recently re-paved highway was a challenge.


    But I'm in an interesting situation now: after a little work outside, my left hip wants ice, but my right hip wants heat! I could generate electricity from the temperature difference . . . .

    Does that mean your third leg is "just right" or totally confused - or, enjoying the benefits of the "tingly sensation" from the charge it's getting from being in the middle of all that generated electricity?!

    I got into that habit and can't break it now!
    A tip - alternate the legs which you lift over (when you can) otherwise you get stuck doing it just one way.

    LOL

    I can barely lift the left leg to get my thigh horizontal; there's no way it's getting up over the bike.

    And when I get full use again, I'll just put that foot in the pedal, push off, and swing my other leg over as I start moving.

    Every time cold wind hits that hip it starts to ache, and if I stay out in it long the ache will reach clear down to my foot and into my lower back. Can I count on this going away with time????

    Um, that's sand spit -- whole different geographical and ecological deal.

    We made a "parking lot run" one evening. There's an old rotten log by where we almost always park, and it split in two a few weeks back. So I gathered up all the rotting wood from the back yard and a bunch of old cement mix bags that were full of earthworms and mixed them with grass clippings and fallen leaves, and filled some containers with weeds mixed with grass clippings and lawn edging. This all got hauled to the rotten log; the "compost" with its earthworms got dumped in between the halves, and then we spread the weed/edgings mix on top. For kicks I threw in some flower bulbs -- English bluebells and a daffodil.

    Of course by mid July it will all have rotted down to six inches deep instead of two feet, but we can always add more compost.


    Mostly I supervised.

    Yep

    What you will get is an ache for a couple of days when the weather changes, either for hot to cold (and vice versa) or dry to wet. Nothing major but an ache nevertheless

    Re: I got a new hip

    Well, I discovered that shopping while on crutches is too totally frustrating. I figured I'd use a basket and just get a few things so it would be easy to carry them home, but my attempts at holding the shopping basket while gripping a crutch were less than stellar.

    Next time I'll just put the crutches in a cart, and use it to steady me, then push the thing all the way home.

    Re: I got a new hip

    Until I could walk with a cane, I could fold up the walker and put it in the shopping cart, but someone had to carry the groceries into the apartment. With the cane, I could shop on my own using my grocery cart to bring the groceries home, even if I had to carry the bags up the stairs one at a time.

    Even with the cane, though, I had to wait weeks until the sidewalks were clear of snow and ice before I dared to venture outside. My roommate went with me the first few times, but I've been able to go on my own for quite some time.

    The walker used to support my weight. The cane does little more than to help me keep my balance.

    Any idea how much longer you'll be on crutches?

    My local Asda (Walmart) has electric buggies for the infirm so shopping was great fun.
    But I did have someone drive me to and from the mall

    Re: I got a new hip

    ^ Crutches were never even mentioned for me. I was on the walker less than 24 hours after the surgery and stayed with it until the surgeon cleared me for the cane. I'd already been taught how to use the cane by a physiotherapist in the hospital and the home visitor. Still, after I started using the cane regularly, I didn't stray far from walls and furniture with my left hand ready to grab hold if necessary.

    Even with the cane, though, I had to wait weeks until the sidewalks were clear of snow and ice before I dared to venture outside. My roommate went with me the first few times, but I've been able to go on my own for quite some time.

    The walker used to support my weight. The cane does little more than to help me keep my balance.

    Any idea how much longer you'll be on crutches?
    I'll probably be using the crutches at least two more weeks, but relying on them less and less, but it could be a month. I'm not counting on it until June, which is coincidentally when I'll be officially allowed to use a swimming pool.

    Re: I got a new hip

    Improvement: I forgot today, waking up after a nap, that I'm not supposed to put pressure on the hip, and rolled over that direction. Instead of pain, it was just serious discomfort!

    Maybe that will help with sleeping? I'm getting tired of having to have my nips and knees slightly bent with a pillow between; being able to shift position would be great.

    I went home with two crutches at 4 days but was down to one crutch within a couple of days
    By a week out of hospital I was on a cane. I ditched the cane at about 4 weeks if I remember rightly

    That's why I went ahead and am doing jury duty -- after the first week or so, I shouldn't need the crutches. But I did check out the jury box, and if I get called to actually sit on a jury while I'm still on the crutches, I'll be fine so long as they put me on the end.

    Wow -- nice.


    I'm going to be daring this week: we're supposed to have several days of July-like weather, so since I'm biking now on level surfaces, I'm going to try biking on the beach (Hm -- better check the tides first!) and walking across the low dune to see how my conservation area seedlings are doing. Not going alone (duh), so no worries.

    WRT "hips", as I meant to type... I straightened the non-operated hip farther last night and let the other drape over a pillow, still slightly bent. It worked.

    I adjusted the lift on my right shoe and ventured to do some yard work.* Really, my movement now is better than it's been in several years, and there's not that much pain so long as I don't lift too much mass. The only issue is that it doesn't take long till it starts to ache.

    Thinking of endurance, I think my break is about over -- time to go finish mowing, making Bammer buckets, and then taking the Bammer for a bike ride.

    It's a conservation thing.

    Goes like this:

    1. sprinkle some twigs and grass clippings in the bottom of a five-gallon bucket
    2. pull weeds, trim the lawn edge, and make a layer about an inch and a half thick
    3. follow with a layer of leaves, flower petals, grass clippings, shredded cardboard, and other biodegradables
    4. toss in one pile of Bammer's Best "fertilizer"
    5. repeat 3, 4, 3, 4, 3

    The bucket is then ready to be taken out to my conservation project's next planting zone to build up patches of actual soil and growing things. Each bucket is inverted, leaving weeds and grass at the top of an organic column; bucket loads are placed close together and the space in between filled with sand and shredded newspaper.

    Among these go "planting boxes", which are wooden frames nine inches on a side, where come next fall we can start transplanting native trees and bushes to thrive amidst the "enhanced soil".

    The trick is not getting it too rich. Three "doses" per bucket is pretty much the max.

    Sometimes I wonder about the water table down below, though.


    BTW, just managed a ten-block bike ride with Bammer on the sidewalk. Not too bad, though the cold air has both my hips aching!

    You must have either hundreds of buckets or a yard that would make monsanto weep with envy. If I pull out the weeds and trim the edge of my lawn, I'd wager on a layer being a bit more than an inch and a half thick.
    Americans need to keep their guns so they can protect themselves from gun violence just like Nancy Lanza did. And like Chris Kyle did. And like Gabby Giffords did. And like Tom Clements did. And like Michael Piemonte. And Joseph Wilcox.
