Hi. I’m Amy’s Mom, from Tampa, FL. I am having my hip surgery in a few weeks and have been very busy with all the pre-op stuff. I am not nervous - yet - and can’t wait to get my life back. I am a pretty active 66yo who has been sidelined for over a month, waiting for my doc to tell me what’s up. I’ve done the PT, fluoroscopy, NSAIDS route... Nothing has helped. The pain is so intense, I could scream. So, finally I have a date. Now for some questions that have been nagging at me, if you don’t mind. What supplies do I need at home? Thankfully, we are all in one floor. What does Medicare pay for? I have an advantage plan. Should I call member services or does the surgeon take care of that? How can the surgeon make sure my legs will be even length? What do I need to know that I don’t even know that I need to know? So many ideas float around my head. Thanks and be well.
