        Hi! Whew...I have no clue what to do on this board! LOL I am having a right THR on January 19th, so pretty much only a week out. I have had issues with my hip for 10 years now, but having been a competitive gymnast growing up and a cheerleader through college and a HS cheer coach for the past 10 years, I really thought I just pulled a groin muscle 10 years ago that I never let completely heal. Then I though maybe it's my psoas, then I looked at FAI. I helped my 79 yr old dad through his THR last year, so imagine my surprise when I found it was my turn! I'm hoping I will be able to return to belly dancing pretty soon after surgery (yeah, as my son says, I put the belly in belly dancing...haha!). And to top things off, all our bedrooms and full baths are upstairs, so I'm hoping they will let me climb our 14 steps at least once a day. I am very thankful to find a forum like this and looking forward to reading everyone's journey.

        Welcome @Bellydansr ! Your surgery is the day before mine. Good luck! This is a great site with loads of info and wonderful people. You can start your own thread in the hip pre-op section and ask any questions you might have. Then once you have your surgery you can make a "recovery" thread in that section and let us know how you are doing. And if you have question or need advise on the recovery side of things.:)

              I have been lurking around this sight for awhile (sounds kind of stalkerish! lol) and I have decided to finally join in. I am having a RTHR on January 27. Thanks everyone for sharing your experiences, it really does relieve some anxiety!
