    Time to get our group of Valentines going for February.

    If you are having surgery this month, please post on this thread and join the team. It's always better to have others going through surgery and recovery with you!

        @bottomshollow DANG you'll have to take me off again! Medicare kicks in Feb 1, and my supplemental insurance does not cover pre-existing until August. I will be on a walker by then, but can't afford it any other way :(

        I have thought of dozens of advantages to waiting until August, I hope I can keep them firmly in mind, as I'm starting to lose sleep to hip pain, which never happened with the first one...

        8 months, 4 days, and counting...:tiredwheel::rolleyes::banghead::blackcloud::ice:

          Hi
          I'm scheduled for a right THR on 10 Feb. Excited to be rid of this pain and be able to walk again. Terrified about the surgery and recovery.
