"Dr. Keeve is absolutely amazing and I can't say enough wonderful things about him. My husband and I were active with attending events at the Spokane Arena, INB Performing Arts, movies, going to Arbor Crest concerts, playing on a pool league, going out dancing, going to Indian's baseball games, hitting amusement parks, hosting family dinners, bike riding, bowling, gardening, attending the symphony as well as concerts in the park at Manito. For the past 2 1/2 years my life had deteriorated to the point that we hadn't been able to really do anything. It was difficult for me to even go to work and that was all I could manage. It was so awful to have to stop at the store on the way home from work, do any errands or even do Christmas shopping last year. I could barely even get into and out of my car. I couldn't get into bed and my husband made a stool for me so that I could get back into our bed after I slept on our sofa for a month. From last October until my surgery I took painkillers every day, all day.
In February when I first went to Dr. Keeve, I felt so comfortable with him and was so totally impressed. The information that he shared with me regarding what was happening was so appreciated. He also actually showed me what he was going to replace my current hip with in the surgery.
On the 27th of July, Dr. Keeve performed a left hip replacement on me. On the 28th of July I was discharged and went home. 10 days after surgery, I was already walking 1 1/2 miles just around our neighborhood. 13 days after surgery, Dr. Keeve advised me that I was doing well and approved me to go back to work when I wanted to. 3 weeks after my surgery I was back at work and I'm now doing outpatient physical therapy. I feel so alive and every day I feel stronger. My husband and I are now able to get out again and do things and I'm so very thankful that I had the pleasure to have Dr Keeve as my surgeon. I can't thank him enough for what he's done for me. I love having a life again!!! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!" – Debbie R.
