    My wife is having a Conformis double hip replacement on August 27. She's so scared she doesn't really want to talk about it, so I thought I would pop-in to this forum to see if I can learn some stuff.

    Welcome @TangoGunn ! I was drawn by your name-- one of my cats is called Tango.

    Of course your wife is terrified! It's only natural. If you post here and check back often, you will find an enormous amount of caring, compassionate, knowledgeable-from-personal-experience support. I'm going to tag @Mojo333 , who had bilateral hips two years ago, at just a bit younger than your wife is now. She has lived to thrive, and is one of our moderators/admins. Also one of the funniest people I know!
