    Thirty-eight days after by RTHR replacement...will I be ready to take a two hour bus trip down/back to the city to see a play and have lunch? I will certainly restrict my walking, but it's one of my favorite plays Miss Saigon.

    Thanks.

    At only a month out a 2 hour bus trip would be a challenge. Then you add lunch and sitting for several hours seeing a play. Then another 2 hour trip back. I think this might be a bit much for you so early out.

    Sorry but I had to be honest. Just remember this will only be a temporary restriction. You will be going to many plays and having lunch with friends again this time next year.

    Jacey, no need to be sorry. My thanks for making me listen to that little voice I was ignoring.

    38 days post-op? But your signature says your right THR isn't until March 22 ....
