    I have my appointment for Pre Assessment on 9th October, and have been pencilled in for RTHR on October 29th. After all the wait, looks like it’s finally going to happen. Feeling relieved and anticipating getting a life back, but rather nervous too!

    I had bi-lateral hip surgeries as a kid (age 9 & 10) for a slipped capital femoral epiphysis. They left the pins in place for 50 years! 3 years ago I had total knee replacement and it was life changing, I actually was able to live pain free for almost 1 year...wow was it great! Sadly, the left side which supported my bad knee has finally yelled UNCLE. The pain has gotten so severe it wakes me up at night. Walking long distances is now impossible. My golf game and hiking has come to an end. Getting down on the floor with my grandkids is close to impossible. Arthritis has set in and the pain has gotten the best of me. I will be having LTHR on October 7th.The doc has informed me that the pins need to be removed when they do the THR, which makes the recovery a bit longer...no PT for 6 weeks dues to risk of fractures. Has anyone ever had pins needing removal during THR? Any tips on successful recovery? I am so ready to do this...just nervous anticipation.

    Have my date scheduled for October 28th. Any one know what the best things are to have at home during your recovery? I have never had surgery before so for me its scary. Trying to make sure I have all supplies I will need. I have a walker, crutches and a grabber...what else is needed?

    Finally decided to go forward with the LTHR. It had been bothering me for a little while so I had a consultation with my surgeon (performed my partial knee replacement May 2016) starting in April 2019 and was told that my left hip was almost bone on bone. The only pain I had at that time was down the front of my thigh so I originally thought it might be muscle or ligament issues until I seen the X-Ray & MRI. I opted to see how it went over the summer using Tylenol & Ibuprofen to keep the pain under control. Lately, the pain is more in my hip area and down my leg including knee pain. It is time to get on the "list". As long as my pre-op tests come out good I am scheduled for surgery on October 14, 2019.
