    Feel free post your surgery date in this thread, and I will add you to the list. Start a thread of your own in the Pre-Op Hip Section to post comments and share your journey toward hip replacement. Here are the instructions you need to do this:

    To start a new thread, hover your mouse "Hip" on the blue line at the top of the page for the drop down menu. Click on the "Pre Op".

    On the upper right hand side under the "Joint Replacement Awareness Day" banner, you will see a black rectangle with the words "Post New Thread" in white.

    Click on this, enter whatever title you want for your thread, but do try to keep it short and sweet, then tab down to the dialogue box and start typing your post which can be as long as you need for it to be.

    By starting your own thread, you and your questions and concerns will receive the attention they deserve.

    Thanks for popping in and welcoming me @Alitm I’ll be following your recovery for sure.

    My daughter moved to Vancouver BC last year and I miss her terribly - what beautiful scenery there!

    @bottomshollow, thanks for the welcome. I've been lurking and reading on these forums for some time now as I considered the hip surgery. So I'm happy to officially join and post my date.

    @Knitquilt, nice title--I wanna hear about quilts as we go along ... So you're a day before me ... Well, we'll have to cheer each other on.
