I said I was a man lol. The best encouragement I have received on this site is from women, go figure lol. Mojo, Cricket hip and others but us men obviously like to debate and argue and be right lol. I went into my surgery as educated and read as much as possible looking at info on pre and post op PT, different surgical approaches, anathesia approach etc. So far my journey has been great with very fast recovery, limited meds with only a bump regarding superficial skin infection responding well to antibiotics. At 2 weeks was driving and could walk in house at 2 1/2 weeks without cane. My wish for all here is a healthy speedy recovery and ability to overcome any set backs.
