Operation Boogy Woogy

Postby STEVIE » Wed Apr 03, 2019 7:30 am

I reckon that my upcoming second hip operation has been well enough shared.
I just want to ask you folks for some musical suggestions to form a soundtrack for the event.
Any era or genre will be considered but special regard will be given to anything that is tastelessly appropriate under the circumstances.
As an example, in the first op I had Dem Bones, Tiger Feet and The March of the Toreadors to name but a few.
One of my own thoughts for this is "You make me feel like dancing".
Laughter is certainly the best medicine.
Thanks.
Steve.

Here are a few favourites, all classical:

  • Dvorak's Ninth Symphony ("From the New World")
  • Ponchielli's Dance of the Hours
  • Rossini's Ancient Airs and Dances Suite
  • Josef Suk's Towards a New Life
  • the final movement of Beethoven's Ninth Symphony (the "Ode to Joy")

Personally, all resonate for me.

I believe in offering every assistance short of actual help but then mainly just want to be left to be myself in all my difference and uniqueness.

I do believe Dennis has the right list for a hip replacement. Do you get to have them played in the operating theater?? I know I had a 5th of Beethoven played the last time I went into surgery along with Who Let the Dogs Out, these were played in the operating theater during my operation. They were operating on my feet. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Thanks Guys
Some of the pieces, I know already and actually used in round one. These Boots, Walking Back and Ode to Joy were all on the first list.
That was entitled "Hip Hop" so I decided on "Boogy Woogy" for round two.
It's held on my phone and I can listen from headphones during the operation.
I am also hoping to be able to see what's being done on a monitor this time around too.
I will still take any more suggestion that may spring to mind.
Steve.

You may not want to. The procedure can involve power tools usually deployed for carpentry and some surprisingly large hammers. Just sayin'

In 1976, I was in hospital for a crushed ankle. My motorbike landed on it. I asked my surgeon about the use of powertools after I heard some rumors. He told me they use Black and Deckers powerdrills from a local DIY shop. They were de-contaminated first of course.

Sorry about that.

Steve already likely knows all the gory details, but even under a spinal-tap seeing one's own leg nearly detached and "heavy machinery" being used thereupon is entirely likely to be "disconcerting". I would recommend sedation. If the procedure is recorded (many are) one might ask for a copy later on. I'm not sure if that's a common practise in the UK but is in the USA due to the ever-present threat of malpractise suits.

The good news is that modern surgical tactics have a remarkably high success rate.

Any playlist with a title of Boogy Woogy should have some Jools Holland on it.

Walking the long miles home by Richard Thompson

Hip to be square by Huey Lewis

I'm gonna be 500 miles by The Proclaimers

Shopper's Paradise by Carter USM has the line "Free pair of flares with every hip replacement, just take the stairs to the bargain basement"

Hi Guys
Just keep them coming, I'm having a bit of fun with this too.
During the first operation I had no sedation, just the spinal anaesthetic and my music.
There are certainly some interesting noises that emanate during the procedure.
When I wrote about it, I called them the "Black and Decker" moments.
The oddest experience was in the setting-up phase and being able to see my leg float, apparently with a mind all of it's own.
Otherwise, I did receive some great compliments on just how calmly I behaved throughout.
Steve.

A friend of mine had spinal anaesthetic and remained fully conscious during her hip replacement operation.  It didn't appear to upset her at all, but when they came to replace the second hip a few years later, they insisted on a general anaesthetic because they said she was showing signs of post-traumatic stress disorder.

I remained fully conscious and unsedated during my prostate 'rebore', which gave me a wonderful opportunity to chat to the surgeon during the operation.  Not only did he keep me fully briefed with a running commentary, but he gave me a fascinating tutorial on some of the detailed biology and the way the specialised medical equipment was designed and built.  My background was in biomedical instrumentation and this particular area was one that interested me from a professional viewpoint; far from being disconcerted, I was delighted to have the opportunity to learn so much .     YMMV
