I need a THR but am scared...I found out in June that I need a THR. I decided to put off surgery due to my age & some personal things I had to take care. The pain has gotten worse & my hip is "locking up" fairly often now. I had another Xray last week and things have gotten worse since June. My femur head & the hip joint are now oblonge shape. I have an appointment with a different surgeon this Thursday. I know I need surgery because things have gotten worse quickly but I'm scared of surgery & recovery. Any tips on overcoming fear?
