    I'm so glad my surgery is on Tuesday. I haven't been able to sleep in days.:yawn: the pain in my hip Hurst soooo bad in my groin its a deep burning sharp pain that leads to the top of my thigh into my knee implant that hurts so bad I'm beside myself I'm practically in tears .:censored::bawl:even the tops of my feet hurt. The only reason holding on to my sanity is relief is on the way. I had my blood work done yesterday only two trys. I'm a hard draw. So its almost time. Sorry for the rant but no sleep and the non stop horrible pain has me beside myself. Thank god I have all of your susupport. :flwrysmile:

      @froggymom so sorry you are suffering pre-op. That pain is so horrid! Just limit your activities to the bear minimum. Stay off that hip if you can. You are nearly there!

        Oh @froggymom - hold tight. As Jaycey says just rest as much as possible. I found icing helped a bit, but whatever you do don't push, pull, lift or carry anything more than your coffee mug. If you've got walking aids then use them. Anything to keep the weight off and ease things. Forgive the expression but you're on the last leg now and soon this will be behind you and you can look forward to some progressive healing. :friends:

          Thank you Miss Muffet and Jaycey I'm holding on. I'm definitely bed and chair bound. If I do anything I'm in so much pain. Before I no it I'll click my hills and I'll be over the rainbow. You all take care and have a blessed day..

              Hang in there @froggymom!!! You're almost there, and as bad as the pain is right now, you just keep telling yourself, "just a few more days, just a few more days". We'll send you all the positive energy and love we can to keep you going too...and my goodness, just think how amazing you're going to feel when you wake up in the recovery room!!!!

              Some advice when that happens: for the sake of the new hip, you might want to do this :spin: instead of this :dancy: just to keep the doctor happy!

              Can't wait to read your first post-op report. Stay strong, visualize all the things you'll be able to do in the near future when the pain gets bad, and allow yourself to cry if you need to. It's all going to be good...:loveshwr:

              Hugs,
              MsBunky

                @froggymom.
                Your only a couple of days away from blessed relief. I suggest you set up your thread in the recovery section now if you feel up to it.
                My discomfort increased dramatically in the week running up to my operations, I think the hips just give up.
                Sincerest best wishes for Tuesday.
                Joe..........

                          You are almost there! Stay busy this weekend! I like that you are packed. Get everything ready at home. I cooked so much that my husband had to tell me to stop!
                          I can't believe that I have my 6 week appointment the day you are having surgery. It has really gone by quickly. I am hoping to have hip restrictions lifted and released from physical therapy. My therapist is sure that I will be. He already gave me exercises to do at home to increase my flexibility after restrictions are lifted.
                          Thinking of you....I will be checking up with you.

                              Your poor hip, @froggymom - it has served you well as long as it could, now it's time to say farewell. As @Irish Joe says, in the last few weeks it really is like your hips know the end is nigh and just give in and give up. You really will feel like a new woman when you wake up from surgery - liberation from all this pain and distress and frustration is coming! You are an expert at surgeries and will do well. Thinking of you and wishing you the very best recovery xx

                                  Yes, @froggymom, all your friends here will be thinking of you - it really does help to know others are holding you in their prayers and thoughts doesn't it? Helped me so much. I wasn't a member at that point, but will be sure to let you all know when hip 2 is coming to the end of its faithful journey!

                                  Wowee, first up - that's perfect. You'll be back home before you know it.

                                    @froggymom good luck. I go for pre-screening next week and going off meds as well. I'm on your heels and wishing you the best. You are one tough lady!

Its amazing how strong the power of prayer is. I believe we all can support each other and turn out on the up side In the end.I'll be looking in on you both take care and bless you all.:unsure::prayer::ok:
