I am having Bkr on June 30 and I am pretty scared. I have done a great deal of research but you still do not really know what to expect. One thing that is a given is the Pain. I have had so much pain over the years that I’m not really worried about that. In the last few weeks it has gotten so bad it’s difficult to make it from the bed to the bathroom. Some days I am in bed all day because I just cannot walk. I should have had this done years ago but did not want to take time away from work, but now I cannot wait any longer.. I just want my life back, I want to be able to walk on the beach and just be able to walk without pain.
