    @Jws. Jo is away from the forum for a while so she likely will not see your tag before your surgery. Please let me or any of our staff know if you have specific concerns between now and then. We'll be here for you.

    @Jws. :wave:
    Research, common sense, self awareness, due diligence and the like...soothing to our academic spirit...but still boils down to a leap of faith, right?
    You are in great hands and have your talents to thank for your choices...so try to chill and think positively. :yes:
    Time to get your life back.
    Happy to hear you decided to go for it.
    Wishing you the best outcome.:ok:
    Oh yes, and a sincere prayer.

    Psoas Release/Tenotomy Surgery tomorrow....Wish me well!!

    Finally bit the bullet...having the surgery at 6:30 am...tomorrow morning...general...about 1 hour...
    Just took my sleeping pill....I hope and pray this brings me relief from this 15 months of frustration and pure nightmare!...

    Thank you all for being there...as Jo would say " no problem ..it's a nothing surgery..just like having a dental crown done!....Right now I am not inclined to believe that...a little to anxious..

    Ok see you all on the other side....thanks for being there again to listen to my bemoaning my hip for 16 months now.....may you all end up with "forgotten hips"....

    @jws Best wishes for your big day tomorrow! If Jo said it's to a big deal then it shouldn't be! Like you said, you've done your due diligence, so now it's.... show time!
    There's a lot of us that will be waiting to hear your update. :)

    Best wishes - you and your surgeon will do well and you'll soon be kicking yourself for not doing this sooner!

    Best of luck to you tomorrow. I'll be watching to see your first post-op message here. You may not hear from Jo, as she is away from the forum right now preparing for her own surgery in a couple of weeks - a knee revision. I'll send you a PM with a BoneSmart email address where you could write her and wish her well in her surgery if you'd like to.
