Following on from my pre op thread.. So after three years diagnosed with OA, 3 cortisone injections, numerous physio appointnents, 6 month hospital waiting list, 4 date postponements, fluctuating levels of pain making the decision difficult, and one recent marriage break up thrown in the midst of it....Thursday is almost here! As my title suggests, new hip, new beginnings. I'm going in feeling strong physically and mentally. I will update you all on my progress of my shiny new hip.
