Anesthesia turned out to be Susan’s biggest problem. She had severe nausea and vomiting after the first 12 hours post surgery. She did have a femoral nerve block, which was very helpful. She walked around the hallways with a walker before she went home and felt that gave her confidence. For her second surgery the doctors were able to better mange her anesthesia and that helped Susan get out of the hospital a day sooner than her first surgery.
