    I am amazed that you are even on the computer so soon! I didn't even want to think of it after my TKR for a few weeks! Did you tell your Doc you are in pain? That's what pain meds are for! Don't be brave, tell them and get some. You can't heal if you hurt! The anesthesia does depress you, so crying is natural, so cry away!

    You'll be fine...I know hips and knees are different, but we all have to go thru PT. I was fortunate because My Doc had a PT department in his practice and it was close by so my DH could take me.

    Get lots of rest, take those pain pills, and think how great it will be when you are healed and there is no more pain!

    emoticon just remember you had major surgery, lost blood, are in pain and on major pain killers, and in general have a messed up body. Give it a day or two. It will be okay! And crying is always helpful.

    PS-I did the rehab after my knee and it wasn't too bad. I lived alone, so I knew I had little choice, but there are nice people there to help you!

    I'm sorry you are having a hard time. It will get better. Try to visualize how good it will be and think about those happy moments to reduce some of the sadness that comes with pain. This was a major surgery and your body will need to heal from that. Good news; you have a new hip. You lost a ton of weight just to get to this you know it will get even better.

    I say, go ahead and cry for a bit...if it helps. Please don't stay in tears too long or think it won't get better. It WILL get better, in time. Sending happy thoughts and gentle hugs!
