I'm having a new hip put it tomorrow
Please send good thoughts and prayers my way. Tomorrow morning (Thursday) I am having total left hip replacement surgery. I'm only 53 but I have arthritis there. I haven't had surgery since I was SEVEN years old when I had my tonsils removed. So I'll be gone from the boards for awhile.

Best of luck to you!! My husband had a hip replacement in July--under different circumstances, and I can't push the importance of doing your physical therapy afterwards--at the office and at home. My cousin's husband had both hips replaced and worked hard and now is as mobile and pain-free as ever.

My husband didn't, and is still limping and wincing.

I will pray for you, QuiltLady. And ditto on the rehab thing. My daughter did a grueling round of PT after her knee surgery, and she's back to playing soccer again. It's so worth the effort.

Look forward to having you back soon!

My thoughts are with you! Good luck for a speedy recovery!

When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.

GOOD LUCK!!!!!!!!!!! Best wishes for a SPEEDY RECOVERY. Remember, don't be shy about asking for PAIN MEDICAITON, that is what it is there for. You will heal more quickly and better if you keep your pain under control.

I'm your age and recently found out that bilateral knee replacements are in MY future (UGH). But luckily I can put it off for a bit.

It is just wonderful what they can do now!!!!
