To BoneSmart @SnowyOwl! You will find lots of good information, advise, and support from those that have "been there done that". With members all over the world there is almost always someone that can get back to you within a fairly short time frame to answer questions. Stop by often for advise, support, somewhere to vent, or a shoulder to cry on.
Sending healing blessings your way. Get the house ready lots of food ready prepared in freezer. Put everything up because bending is not easy the first few weeks. Have clothing that is easy on and off. Bath stool and risers in place. Keep height on chairs high not to low. There is a lot of things to prepare for to make recovery easier. Take your time just let you hip heal. 3-6 months you’ll be out walking thru life as if you never had osteo.
Welcome to Bonesmart and I'm glad you will soon be back on the road to healthy and happy with a pain free hip.
All Temporary became my mantra for the first months and I am very happy I found Bonesmart to get some great advice and assurance during my recovery.
Healing mojo coming your way in advance.
