    If you're having surgery in the month of June, I hope you'll join our June Sunbeams for a bright start to your life with your new joint!

    Your fellow Sunbeams will help you along the way with warm hugs and lots of support!

    We have found that surgery and recovery is easier if you have a group of folks who are going through similar experiences.

    So post and tell us your surgery date and get ready to meet your fellow June Sunbeams!

    Well I guess I'm the first to post June 26th is my date. Left hip, anterior method. Surgery being done in Ontario, Canada. Nervous for sure, always wonder if I will be worse off than I am now with any complications that might arise. But, I'm tired of not enjoying life to the fullest as a "young" 45 year old! I'd love anyone to share one very best piece of advice you'd give someone who is about 3 months away! Many thanks, Jenn

    @mandasmom so glad to hear we are relatively in the same boat! Are you exercising/strengthening leading up to your surgery and what do you currently do for pain management? Happy Friday!

    My date for my right hip is June 14 (posterior) - Reno, NV! I am also "young" for a replacement - 44. I had my left hip done 3 years ago this week and I can't wait for the next one!!! @JennsHip I began PT last week to prepare (I did the same with my other). This hip is much more painful and it's hard to do all of the exercises, but I want the best possible outcome (as I know we all do)! I am taking ibuprofen, Tylenol and tramadol (just added a week ago) for pain, but some days it's still awful. What are you doing @JennsHip and @mandasmom? I would love to know if you have any good ideas! I've got three kiddos and staying off my feet is not an option.

    June 23rd, THR on right. I had my left hip replaced in November of 2016. I'll figure out how to start a new thread (using my existing info). Both hips had collapsed (due to AVN) but doctor did not like to perform bilateral surgery. In hindsight I wonder if it would have been easier. Anyway, I am nervous but very, very ready to be out of pain.

    My replacement is scheduled for June 15.

    My right hip- I am 55, so I was surprised to hear the radiology technician say " I need to take another view so that they can measure for your replacement."

    Does anyone have suggestions for pre op physical therapy? Online resources? I am hoping that if I begin strengthening the muscles pre op that I might return to normal activity faster. I used to ride 5 days a week until it became impossible. My horses are enjoying their vacation, but I really miss riding.
