That is great news that everything went well during the surgery. Make sure that hubby takes it very slow and does not do anything but rest, rest, rest and rest at this point.

Did they take bone from the hip for his fusion? If so that could be cause of his increased pain.

You might try giving heat a try if ice does not work. I would not use it on the incision but on the hip will be fine.

Make sure that he sets the alarm to take his medicine around the clock 24/7 so that the pain does not get out of control for the first couple of weeks.

Hope this helps and I would definitely call the doctor in the morning.

Thank you for your kind words of encouragement. He didn't have any bone grafted from his hip but the Dr did say to expect nerve pain while the nerves healed. We will give the heat a try this morning and give the Dr. a call later. Steve is up about every 2 hours using the restroom. He seems to have a lot of fluid built up and his legs are swollen. I am keeping a journal of all his meds and when he takes them. So we are staying on top of that.
Thanks again and I will keep posting on his progress. This sight has been wonderful place of information and I am so glad that I found it.
