Greetings all! I am scheduled for right hip replacement on Feb. 11th. I found this site when I scheduled my surgery last year. The posts are so informative and help to ease the anxiety. I am excited about being pain-free but nervous as heck about the surgery itself. This is not my first major surgery but I cannot remember ever being as nervous as I am now.

Hi @bottomshollow Yikes only a few more days to go!
LTHR Scheduled Feb 6th here in the Uk

I’m on what is called the Enhanced Recovery Program so expecting to only be in for a day or so then recovering at home

Little anxious that means it’s down to me to do things right... but you don’t leave until they are happy you know what you’re doing

Hi everyone. I'm having my surgery (hip replacement) on Valentine's Day and I don't feel at all ready! I've had orthopaedic surgery before, but never hip surgery, and I was much younger (I'm 49 now).

Well, it's 2/4 tomorrow, I'm reporting for my hip replacement at 8:30AM with Dr. Chow. Wish me luck! See you on the recovery side!

I’m 49 too Hippy. You will be great. I’m up and walking with a walker since yesterday after surgery. Except for the meds making it difficult for me to empty bladder, no problems at all.

Leaving the hospital soon! My son just got here to pick me up. Happy and healthy thoughts for all newly bionic friends!

My LTHR is scheduled for 11th February. I’m looking forward to being pain free and enjoying hiking again. My life has been so restricted for the last year. I have learnt a lot by reading posts in this forum.

Hey all, Pikesan here. I’m out of surgery about 4.5 days. I’m only walking with a walker but feeling better and more confident every hour I get up to walk. Other than that, I’m just resting.
Any questions, please ask I’m happy to help!

My Right THR is scheduled for February 20th, 2019. I am super anxious as the date approaches. Glad to have found this forum one week before. On my way to read some posts in the library. Thanks in advance for all the information shared.
