Getting Ready For Hip Replacement Surgery

From what people tell me who have gone through the surgery, I am going to be happy once the surgery is over, and the healing begins.  There have been so many things that I have not been able to do, or that have been painful to do.  Going out for walks, going up stairs and hills, carrying my dog, many yoga poses all have difficult or painful.  I became so  fearful of physical activity because I could not predict what would cause pain later that day, or the next.

These types of things should be a thing of the past, once surgery is complete.

It takes an act of faith to say that I am done trying to fix this myself, with alternative therapies, or avoiding activities.   When you have a structural problem, things are going to get worse, your body is going to compensate, and you could potentially cause damage to other joints.   There is a time to wait and a time to act.   Now I have to take a leap of faith and trust my doctor and his team to do their work.
