    Just found this site, wish I had found it sooner. I'm scheduled for surgery on Tuesday, May 28 and need to be there hours before dawn (fun for a night owl!) Left hip, anterior approach, my surgeon seems wonderful. Nervous and hoping that nothing will happen to force a postponement (I was scheduled for March but got flea bites). Really can't wait to be done limping and hurting my hand by leaning on the cane too much. Cheers to everyone else going through this and glad for this nice support site.

    And please add me to the list:)

    Please add me to the May Marvels! I had a Right THR May 22nd, but I’m just now finding this group. I haven’t yet started my own thread (I will soon, promise!) but already this group has been a tremendous help in my recovery. It makes recovery easier knowing I’m not alone & will be able to find others having almost the same recovery experiences.
