Hello Everyone... I am on the final countdown to my right THR coming up September 6. Trying to beat back the anxiety that comes with my first major surgery. I so hoped that my hip problems would resolve with therapy and exercise but I finally had to come to grips with surgery as my only option to recover the quality of life I want. I've alway been very active and this last year of having to say no to activities I love has been hard. I've been reading a lot here and it's encouraging, I want to embrace that but there's that little voice in the back of my head that won't let me be as optimistic as I want to be. All pre-op screenings are next week. Hopefully I'll soon be done limping through life.
