Thank you @Mojo333 I was reading some of her threads...I can totally relate. She mentioned something about scratches from her cats I didn't think of. I get scratched by one of my dogs, too. As I'm reading her posts though, I also see she is in much more pain than I am. I have no trouble sleeping at night or walking around the house, it's walking distances that I have pain with which is why I want to push surgery a little further ahead. Plus, the financial aspect...I was never a saver and now I have to save enough to keep me a float for a couple of months. I am working on that, too. Thanks for the tip though....I totally get her panic...I am there now. I see she had her surgery, though...I haven't gotten to read too many of the post op messages. Did she get the anterior she wanted? No os will do that on me. My hip is "complicated"...that is what has me anxious.
