Summary:
Jerri-Lynn here: Yves again thanks readers for their interest in her progress. The short version is:1. The Hospital for Special Surgery is a phenomenal hospital. Nurses normally come in less than 5 mins when called, at worst, 10 mins at shift change time. The same MDs check up on her. She  sees 3 most days, an MD on the surgeon’s team, later the surgeon, and in the PM a more generalist MD (the same one who did her pre-op testing).2. The procedure was trouble-free. She has no memory of the procedure. 3. She was released from the recovery room in record time. Staff on duty couldn’t recall another double hip case being transferred to a regular room the same day4. She has no pain except for a bound-up back which big time interfered early on with required sleeping on her back and normal

Jerri-Lynn here: Yves again thanks readers for their interest in her progress.

The short version is:

1. The Hospital for Special Surgery is a phenomenal hospital. Nurses normally come in less than 5 mins when called, at worst, 10 mins at shift change time. The same MDs check up on her. She  sees 3 most days, an MD on the surgeon’s team, later the surgeon, and in the PM a more generalist MD (the same one who did her pre-op testing).

2. The procedure was trouble-free. She has no memory of the procedure.

3. She was released from the recovery room in record time. Staff on duty couldn’t recall another double hip case being transferred to a regular room the same day

4. She has no pain except for a bound-up back which big time interfered early on with required sleeping on her back and normal soreness when trying to walk. The staff is a bit mystified about her lack of pretty much any pain at the 2 incision sites. particularly given the terrible condition of her hips prior to surgery. 

5. However, she is frustrated by how little she can do now. She is staying in NYC longer than originally planned and will remain in NYC until late next week, not due to any lack of progress with her recovery  (her surgeon had actually wanted her to stay in NYC for two weeks) but rather due to her failure so far to find PTs in Alabama who will come to her house.
