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.

Feel free post your surgery date in this thread, and we 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:

Starting a new thread and posting

Take a look at the instructions and, if you still need help, post here and we'll help get you started.t

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 recommend you take time to register for our 2020 Joint Replacement Awareness Day to be held on Saturday, May 9th.

Plus, you'll have the ability to ask your questions to any of the participants LIVE during the broadcast.

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

Left THR scheduled for April 20. Right THR tentatively six weeks later. Pain in both is becoming unbearable, really want to get this done! Surgeon performs these as outpatient. I'm concerned about remaining awake with the epidural, seems like there will be some "interesting" sounds being made. Has anyone experienced this?

Thanks,
Dennis Celery

@Suzibmy1 - Have a ,look at the post above yours and you'll see that I've already joined you to the group.

Please remember that the monthly team threads are primarily to allow you to see who has surgery the same month as you. Discussion of issues, comments, and questions regarding recovery must be kept in your individual threads.

Hello Which is the ‘proper forum’ for me to start posting for my hip? A couple of years ago, when having my Left TKR, I had quite a problem as I use mobile devices and this seemed to cause problems. I found the forum SO helpful last time that I really want to use it on this occasion from the start.
