    Hi everyone! haven't posted in awhile. I've been a little depressed with all this pain and trying to get through my last week at work. But there is a light at the end of the tunnel now. October11th is almost here! Good Luck to everyone having hip or knee done this month also.

    You can do it, @huffycat! I'm not even two full weeks in, and already feeling as if this was 110% the right decision for me to have made. Surgery itself really wasn't that big a problem (just my unreasoning fear of the spinal/sedation!) and while recovery isn't exactly a walk in the park, I am progressing with increasing mobility and lessened pain medication. Best of luck to you!

    Hi @huffycat ... Your post caught my eye because your surgery is 2 days after mine. I'm scheduled for tomorrow (10/9). It could not have been easy to continue working with a painful hip. We can compare notes at the end of the week ! Good luck to you on Thursday :flwrysmile:

    @huffycat I was just about to log out when I saw your reply. It's so funny ...your surgery is Thursday and you are packing ....mine is tomorrow and I haven't packed a thing yet ! As you can tell, I am very much a last minute person. I don't expect to sleep much, so in my mind, I still have plenty of time. :heehee:

    @huffycat Worry not - you are not going crazy. The system sometimes changes a word that is posted if it thinks the poster is swearing. I think I know the word you were trying to use and it's really not a swear word but for some reason it always gets changed.

    Take things easy - deep breath! You are nearly on your way and we are with you!

    Haha—early on when I started posting it seemed like the oddest and not very controversial words were getting changed by the site, forcing me to edit and get creative with my vocabulary! You are not crazy, @huffycat! Best of luck tomorrow.

    Hoping your pain is managed and you are getting through these tough first days.
    All temporary...was my mantra to get through it.
    Hope they are set to send you home soon.
    Healing hugs:roseshwr:
