Hello @Rich0814 - and :welome:

Please will you tell us the full date of your hip replacement and which hip it is, so we can make a signature for you? Thank you.:flwrysmile:

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

I hope you take a lot of time to read threads on this forum. On the recovery side we have all been there and done that and you can learn a lot by reading posts there. It will also give you a lot of insight as what to ask your OS and what to expect.
