Actually it won't make any difference to your recovery. It will be pretty much like a standard hip replacement.I wonder how much more painful or how much longer it will take me to recover.
Not in the right hands. It will be complicated for HIM, not you. Even if it lengthened the procedure by another hour or so.Also, the fact that 4 os said it was complicated surgery, does it raise the percentage of things going wrong??
It's not exactly a matter of trust but of seeing what will happen. As sequin just said, no surgeon really knows until he gets 'in there' and see's what's really what. Even then, it's unlikely to have a much of an impact on your recovery.The 4th os said my left leg will stay shorter and the 2nd os said he could lengthen it. Who do I trust?
One thing that is not helping you is that you're regarding this surgery as if it's a) unusual and b) supremely difficult. It is neither of those things.fearing the worst outcomes is unsettling
Wow, you deffinitely know the drill...lol. My sister asked me to come to the mall with her and my other two sisters tomorrow...and I am debating if it's worth the pain, since I will have that on my mind more than the shopping. My little sister walks like she's on speed and sometimes I can't keep up with her. Will see.Circling parking lots looking for the closest space because of the pain you experience while walking. Leaning heavily on a cart in the store as you shop.
