It’s workout Wednesday! Our Indo fans over on Instagram post videos of their awesome workouts using the Indo Board. I have pulled a few to give you a couple new ideas how the Indo Board can help you in your exercise routine.

Sammy uses the Indo Board to work on his hand eye coordination which helped him when he pitched in college. 10 years later, he still uses the Indo Board in his exercise routine.

 

Holly Hox sent us in a picture of her doing a squat and holding it for as long as she could on the Indo Board

Indo Board Man and the Quest for a New Hip Part 7

Indo Board Man spent the first night alone on Sunday, three days after his hip surgery. He stopped using the prescription pain meds but was complaining of swelling in his leg. Ibuprofen to the rescue! With the help of Ibuprofen, he slept better and continued his exercises and recovery with the help of walks from his “personal trainer” (his two year old grandson).

His personal trainer also helped him make the phone calls to set up therapy and home nursing. His nurse and therapist were both impressed with his recovery.

Six days post op, with the okay from the therapist, he dropped the walker in favor of a walking stick. He took walks up to the next block and back.

He also drove his van for the first time! This hip replacement was only slightly slowing him down. He was more at risk of doing too much to soon than any other complication.

It’s day two post op and Indo Board Man is ready to get the heck out of the hospital.

After discharging him, he laid down in the back of his van for the ride home which took an hour and a half. Then he settled in for the first day at home. Armed with his walker, he took it easy night one.

Day two he read, slept, did his therapy and even had enough strength to cook Linguine and Clams

One of the few complaints was his inability to walk with the walker and carry his water bottle at the same time. An Amazon prime order fixed that and he was outfitted with a cup holder that attached to the walker. Since he came home on the weekend, he had to wait until Monday for the home physical therapist to arrive. But he felt good enough to entertain his grandsons Sunday evening.

They were delighted with him giving them redi-whip in the can.

More on week one recovery later!

Indo Board Man and the Quest for a Better Hip Part 4

Indo Board Man had his first physical therapy session at 7pm, 7 hours after his hip replacement. Check out the videos of his first time standing and walking on his new hip.

Indo Board Man was feeling little pain as the doctor injected a steroid medication during the operation that was still in effect. Indo Board Man was ready and raring to go! He reported no pain and an immediate ease to walking with the problems of the osteoarthritic femoral head gone!

He walked 200 feet before the therapist turned him around and walked him back to the room. The therapist was impressed with the smooth movement of muscles in the legs as Indo Board Man was describing the problems prior to surgery. The advantages of the “Anterior Approach” became reality as there was no pain caused by muscles being cut.

So far so good!

Indo Board Man and the Quest for a Better Hip part 3

Indo Board Man’s surgery lasted about 2 hours and he spent several hours in post op waiting for a room to open up. The doctor gave him these x-rays of the finished procedure. This procedure was the Anterior approach which means the incision was at the front of the hip. This is the most advanced method for a total hip replacement because there is no cutting of the muscles. The hip is accessed by going in between two muscles without any cutting of the support muscles which makes for a much faster recovery. The ‘spike’ is titanium and carefully positioned inside the femur to support the new ball and precisely fit into the new socket of titanium and plastic.

Here is the new bionic hip and below is a picture of the new hip with the resurfaced hip. The surgeon aligned the left hip with the right resurfaced hip. The zipper is how the doctor gained access to the hip…just kidding! Hahaha! The 2010 resurfacing was a “posterior approach” which means they come in from the back of the hip with a much larger incision and cutting of the gluteous maximus in order to access the femoral head. The hospital stay in 2010 was 4 nights and required lots of pain meds to recover. This time was completely different with 1 nights stay in the hospital and a minimum of pain meds.

 

While waiting in post op, he helped himself to a few popsicles. That was his first food since dinner the night before and the popsicles were most welcome at 2 pm after the surgery.

 

After spending several hours in post op, he finally had a room.

He caught up on all the happenings and well wishes from his facebook friends while waiting for the physical therapist to arrive. At least his room had a nice view.

Check back for Indo Board Man’s first therapy session!

Indo Board Man and the Quest for a Better Hip Part 2

It’s the morning of the Operation. Indo Board Man is getting his left hip replaced. He headed to Orlando at the crack of dawn to begin the wait to be wheeled into surgery. Indo Board Man is in good spirits as he waits to get wheeled back into the operating room. He is showing off his humor in the photo below.

 

Then the doctor comes in and marks his hip.

Three hours after arriving, they wheel him back. More when he is out of surgery!
