    Is April the month you plan to find the pot of gold at the end of your rainbow? Congratulations!!! And we invite you to join the BoneSmart group, April Rainbows. As a team, you will have people like yourself going through surgery at the same time to talk with. We find this works really well to deal with concerns and provide support to each other.

    Welcome to our latest and all April Rainbows!


    [​IMG]

    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's the link that gives you 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. For additional help, look in the white heading under the blue, click on "Help & Info", then click on "How to Use This Forum". Lots of info there to help you navigate the forum.

    We are here to help in any way we can because We Care!

    Hello, I'm another for April 15 so that will definitely be a lucky day for myself and @Chappyd!
    Only 22 months after request for referral but who's counting?

    I have been to see the surgeon this morning …. 4th April is my op date. At least I see an end to the endless grinding pain.

    Hi @907Bionic You have the same surgery date as me. Fingers crossed for us both, and everyone else facing surgery... four weeks today it all happens for me. It really can't come soon enough now.
