Well its nearly lunchtime on Tuesday here and I have to be at the hospital at 6.30am on Thursday 18th February. Two days from now I hope to be wheeled into recovery with a new right hip.

Hi Jaz

I will keep you in my thoughts, I am sure everything will go just fine for you and before you know it you will be up doing all those things your bad old hip took away from you.

I have almost exactly 5 weeks to go here, talk about nerves getting jittery, oh dear.

Take care of yourself. We will cya back on the boards before you know it.

Hi Jaz,
Before you know it, it will be all over. I can't believe I am 3 weeks post op tomorrow and such a difference after 3 weeks, walking with one crutch and short spurts without any aids and best of all NO PAIN!

Good luck for Thursday.

All the best to you - I agree, I think this is the hard part....the waiting. Another thing to keep in mind, you will be amazed how much better you feel each day after the surgery. And no more hip pain!!!!!!
