Thank you @Jaycey I have a great support system, but as you say, stopping the worrying is difficult. It is, however, my "marching orders" that I shall not be anxious. I am looking forward to seeing what the PT says. He is also a Doctor of Physical Therapy, AND an Orthopedic Clinical Specialist-- which is one I'd never heard of. I do believe I may use him for my own "problems" caused by my own various stupidities after each hip!! Perhaps he's the way out of the ODIC!!
