    Are you having surgery in the month of May? Welcome to the May Marvels....a team just for you with others that will be having surgery and recovery right along with you. Give us your surgery date and maybe a few facts about yourself and we'll get you on the list. As the month goes by, the list will grow and maybe you'll find a few folks to partner up with for recovery.

    Please join the team and help support your fellow BoneSmarties through the lead-up to the Big Day and the recovery afterwards!

    I’m scheduled for a LHR on May 1st. Nervous about tackling recovery with a 4-year-old and 9-month-old. Glad to have discovered this forum! I’ve already learned a lot...

    I am scheduled for a right THR on May 28. I have AVN from a fracture (Dec. '16) when I had three pins put in. I'm very nervous because I'm having the surgery at a point where my hip is only crummy, not horrendous. So I keep wondering if I should wait. But things are supposed to only get worse from here, so I'm going ahead with it. I have a thread in pre-op area.

    Bilateral THR May 3.... a bit nervous about doing both at the same time, but both are so bad I really don't have a choice.
