Happy Results from Using Guided Imagery for Hip Replacement Surgery

19 Feb

I had hip replacement surgery 4 weeks ago, using the Successful Surgery guided imagery for 2 weeks before I entered the hospital.

I set it to repeat continuously when I went into the hospital, listening to it until I met the anesthesiologist, who gave permission to use it in the operating room.

After the surgery, I switched to the meditation to Ease Pain, which had the added bonus of blocking sounds & voices from the nurses' station outside my door.

I was released after 2 days, walking on my own with only a cane. I continued to use the Ease Pain meditation every night to help me sleep.  

I was given 2 pain meds but only took the milder med for a couple weeks. By week 3, I was walking without the cane.

I really believe the meditations & visualizations of both CDs helped.
Thank you.
