I’m so happy that my posts are helping you on your journey @Cassidy because I’ve received so much help and encouragement on this forum, it’s good to know that I’m giving back. We have a lot in common so I understand your struggle with whether to wait or not. I can tell you now that I’m glad I went ahead with it because I can see the damage it was doing to my muscles, ligaments and other joints. Most of my rehab has been teaching my body that it doesn’t need to protect a bad hip anymore. I’m walking taller and straighter than I have in years which also helps me feel younger and more energetic. I can also see a big difference in how quickly I’m recovering compared to those who wait a lot longer. I’ll be here to hold your hand as you get closer to your surgery date, and then through recovery.
