Well, I spent a lot of time here in 2014 before and after my LTHR. I made a lot of bone smartie friends at the time and this site really helped me with all questions I had. I am finally getting the right one done. I have been unable to walk unassisted since November, when I developed a bad staph infection that spread throughout my body and attacked my right hip, which put me in the hospital for a month. My right hip had already been bad before the infection, but It is really bad now. I have been home for about 2 months. The infection is totally gone, so they are just watching me for three months before they operate. I’m feeling great and can not wait to get a new hip. I am so tired of using a walker. I’m too young for that! I’m sure I will be here a lot as my surgery date gets closer.
