"Anyone who says hip replacement surgery is a piece of cake must have heard someone else say it! Although after 10 days I can say that things are looking up. Up until the last few days I have been sleeping about 20 hours out of 24. When I came out of surgery I knew everything was going to be OK because I could see immediately that all my toes were pointing the same direction. I go back for post-op on the 11th and should be able to start walking without some type of assistance.
The worst is that I know I’ll have to have the right hip replaced as well, I just don’t know how long I’m going to be able to put up with it the way it is.
Of course, our best wishes for a speedy and painless recovery go out to John. And hopefully, his right hip will hang in there for him, so he doesn't have to go thru this again for a very long time.
