Right hip finally "resigned" from service! I've put up with moderate pain for about 7 years. Finally, my hip said "no more". Not letting you move about freely anymore! Consulted a surgeon. Stage 3+ Osteoarthritis. Recommends hip replacement. Having been through TKR 4 years ago, I have some idea what the road ahead will bring as far as recovery goes. I'm anxious about that, but I know that in the end it will be so worth it. My surgery date is set for March 1. For the immediate future, I have my work cut out for me. I need to maintain or lower my BMI from 38.8. I need to be under 40 BMI or they will not perform the surgery. So I have 60 days to improve that number and I will be serious about meeting that goal! Looking forward to getting better!
