So anxious to get this done. It should have have happened in March, but we all know what happened then---

Surgery finally scheduled for 12/8

@Minilu2 Welcome to BoneSmart. You posted in a general information area so I moved your thread to the knee pre-op area. Maybe you are having hip surgery? Please confirm what surgery you are having and left or right. We will create a signature for you.

Hello @Minilu2 - and :welome:

I've moved your thread to the Hip Surgery Pre-Op Area. You're in the right place now.

I will do your signature and add your name to the December Supernovas surgery team thread as well.

Here is some reading, to help you prepare for your surgery:

If you are at the stage where you are planning to have surgery but are looking for information so you can be better prepared for what is to come, take a look at these links:
Recovery Aids: A comprehensive list for hospital and home

And if you want to picture what your life might be like with a replaced hip, take a look at the posts and threads from other BoneSmarties provided in this link:

I am glad that you have a date now as you had such a long wait from the March cancellations. It is hard to wait but now it will be soon.
