My Mom had a hip replacement surgery little over a year ago, and her hip has been good since then. But her partner called me just now that Mom had managed to displace that hip while vacuuming their sauna. She’s been taken to the hospital, and Mom’s partner said that they had talked that she’ll call him (and me) once she’s been treated and she knows what’s what. The paramedics said that it’ll take hours though – first the hip will be MRIed and then it’ll be put into place. Considering it’s Friday, I’m pretty sure Mom will stay in the hospital for the weekend. It’ll be so hard for her partner and me to wait to hear how Mom is doing, but most of all I feel so bad for Mom! I haven’t found much about recovering from a hip displacement but the one interview I did find, said that the rehabilitation started right from the beginning just like when the surgery was first done. So Mom’s got pain to heal from and a lot of work in front of her again 😥
The good thing though is that the hospital she was taken to I trust, I’ve been in with my migraines several times, and back in 2014 I was taken in for a week because of Crohn’s and other stuff. I’ve always received good care there.
I don’t get it… just when things are going well for bit and are nice and steady, always something fuckety fuck fuck happens 😥
EDIT: Mom just called me. She sounded her normal self; she has been through the MRI, the hip has been reset and she’s been examined injuries. Nothing’s broken, she can move her legs and hips and everything works as it should. She doesn’t know for sure yet but thinks she’ll get to go home later today after being observed for a while because she was anesthetized for the 5-10 minutes that it took to reset the hip. She also doesn’t know yet how sore she’s likely to be the next days, or if there’s any particular things or exercises she needs to do, or or not do, but I expect all that will get settled in short order. I’m so relieved!
