When my right hip was replaced, my big dread was hearing the sounds
of the procedure, tap-tapping, sawing, cutting and feeling the pushing and shoving. An epidural injection using military grade pain relief deadens the body below the waist and a screen hides the show.
Fortunately for me though, back in 1990 and 1991, I had two surgeries in the lower back and because of the resulting scar tissue the correct sighting of the injection was made very difficult. So I was given a general anesthesic instead and avoided the sound and light show I had dreaded. Having joints replaced is a fairly common procedure these days as folks get older, but the key to a rapid recovery is physiotherapy and as soon after the surgery as possible which is why the medics prefer the patient to be awake and without the need to have a nice long sleep for the next 24 hours after the procedure.
So I know that unless of some extreme bad fortune, which thankfully is extremely rare these days, Jack is going to be just fine.
