      Thank you for adding me to the January group. I have resisted having the hip replacement for three years. I have used herbs, osteopathy, exercise and physio .... however, over the last 4 months it has become too difficult. I have a bad limp and cannot walk far. I have been so used to walking everywhere. Now I am grateful that I am having surgery on 6th Jan 2017. I have trepidation because I have not taken any allopathic medicine since my twenties. Look forward to sharing with other people.

          I am scheduled to have my left hip fixed on Jan 9 2017. Its not keeping me awake much yet but its slowing me down and I know its not going to get better. I want to take walks and hikes and bike rides! I need to go-go-go! I promised myself I wouldn't wait 7 years like I did on my right hip.

              Finally had the call after a two year wait.....28th January 2017 and at the grand old age of 38 I'll be having a new hip!!! Very excited and relieved as I thought a date was never coming and I was destined to be in pain forever. I want my life back. News of the date has been tuned with frustration at the reaction of my parents who have only focused on my weight (obese very high bmi) and the problems that will pose. I understand the risks and that putting a hip into a diff body isn't ideal but that's what I've got and until I can do some exercise I'm going to struggle to lose more than a stone .... Believe me I've tried!!!! So I'm choosing to ignore the negativity and look at what I can do!!!! Good luck January hippies
