I now am scheduled to have. THR on May 9th. I was on the knee pre op side but cancelled for various reasons, mainly because I couldn’t get up the courage. This is different because unlike my bone on bone knees, my right hip constantly hurts. I finally decided after reading about hip surgery on this forum , that it may be slightly easier than knees. Nevertheless, I can’t stand the constant pain this hip is giving me so I’m going to do it! I don’t know if it makes a lot of difference in outcome or complications but it’s being done in a small orthopedic hospital that seems to have a very good reputation.i hope I have made the right decision. The surgeon was great to talk to, spent a long time with me and didn’t seem bored or in a rush so I take that as a good sign.
