    Hi @palin21bug so sorry you're in so much pain, it's miserable to be like that. Have you tried icing? And some people get relief from heat, so maybe experiment. The end is in sight, 3 and a half weeks to go, so whatever you do hopefully won't be for long. Have you tried using a cane/crutches/walker to take the strain off your legs? Make this a separate thread so that other members can see it....I'm sure there'll be lots more support and suggestions for you. Take care....

    Do you mean before surgery? I did, but not quite like you describe. I was having trouble with my back and my quads. My busted up hips basically seemed to stop my glutes from working properly, so my quads were doing the heavy lifting. By the end of most days it felt like I had walked 20 miles. My leg muscles were so tight and tired. PT helped clear things up (mostly - I'm a work in progress :) ) before my first surgery - and has been helping afterwards as I've been preparing for hip #2 at the end of May.

    @palin21bug You may notice I moved the discussion regarding your pre-op pain to a thread of your own. This way you don't hijack someone else's thread and you get input on your own issues.

    Unfortunately no one has created any medication that addresses pre-op pain. The best approach is to stay off that sore hip as much as possible. Ice and elevate if it helps. The good news is you will soon have a shiny new hip.

    That pre-op bone on bone mess is horrid.
    Only weeks away but I totally get that seems like an eternity.
    As Jaycey said, ice if you can.
    I actually resorted to heating pad and got some comfort.

    I have been using Tylenol, ibuprofen and ice which keeps the pain bearable . Sometimes I use my walker and that helps but I pretty much rest. I can’t do much. Hopefully that will all change on May 9 . Then I have 2 knees to look forward to. I pray I’ll get through it all.

    Pain radiating down legs sounds more like sciatica.

    Going for my pre op testing in a few hours. Not sure why but I’m feeling really down today. I guess it’s just my pessimism.

    You can do this and we will be here to cheer you on...
    It was very obvious to me post op that I had lost that terrible hip pain so the recovery stuff was going to be temporary and well worth it.
    I know I was anxious but also excited there was something to give me back my life.
    Yay for bye bye hip pain!:yes!:
