Hi all!
I´m Michele, a 46 year old teacher from Southern Indiana. I had my first THR (right side) three years ago and after two failed labral repair/reconstructions. This time the decision has been rather quick. I saw my surgeon at my PT´s request, we did a MRI, and I met with the surgeon again yesterday. I´m now on his calendar for this this next Tuesday (July 21). This procedure will be a little different as I´m not having a spinal, and it will be a (hopefully) same day procedure.
Wishing you all well!
Michele

Welcome back, Cisne!
I remember you from my THR recovery. We both had our right hip replaced in June 2017.
Remember, Mojo, GrannyC, MyAussieGirl, dougie...to name a few. Some still stop by on occasion. I hope you’re not in too much pain. Not long to wait now.
I look forward to following your journey and hope this one is easier than the first! :)

Thanks Layla! Sadly, I've just had a call from my surgeon's office. Insurance has denied my surgery insisting that we jump through more hoops before scheduling.
Take care,
Michele

@zaberflote He thinks doing PT and injections. However he did tell me at our last visit that he didn't feel PT would help as I'm very active. Thanks everyone!

I had to have a hip injection before my last replacement. My OS said we needed proof of conservative treatment so there would be no issues. They also let me schedule the surgery at the same time so that I would have a slot which made it all more bearable. I think most OS require a 3 months' wait before surgery after a hip injection but mine has a 6 month rule. Not great but considering he was already booking out 5 months out it was doable. I hope they let you schedule the surgery at same time after injection so you have the soonest slot possible.
