Yeah, titanium.. I'm curious about that ceramic too actually. I'd expect it to be less reactive, but I also always thought the weather stuff was
exaggerated before I experienced it myself. Its certainly not always pleasant!
That's awesome that you are getting in and out of bed yourself
It probably doesn't need to be said, but still be careful! Falling down after a
fresh surgery sucks.. heh.
I kind of hope that electronics and such will eventually be integrated into this stuff. I'm not really into "transhumanism," but I can't deny the
appeal of my hip replacement doing cool stuff beyond just working.
I got lucky though, had it been much longer, I would probably have lost my leg. Still would be cool to be able to change the TV channel by tapping on
my hip... Or even better, be able to turn the lights off without getting out of bed!
Do you have any issues with itching around the healed incision? Obviously, it does while healing, but sometimes mine flares up quite badly. Its like a
mosquito bite times ten, and gets worse and worse til I put some prescription itch cream on it.
