I am scheduled for a hip replacement next month, and would love to hear from anyone with any experience with this operation as to what to expect pre- and post-op – i.e. how it affected your life, pain levels and resolutions of same, etc. – any information at all would be most welcomed.
Most specifically I would like to hear how those who RV have managed within the confines of a motorhome, as well as ingress and egress from the vehicle.
Right now, and for the last seven years, I have been in constant pain, and am totally looking forward to some resolution to this. I can’t believe that the operation, pre-hab and re-hab can be any more painful that what I have been enduring for so long, but maybe I am in for a nasty surprise.
Any and all stories are gratefully read, so please share what is comfortable for you as far as how this happens in the real world, and not just in the booklets that they give you at the time of scheduling! ;->
Private correspondence may be sent to my email address:
Thanks to one and all who share their stories with me. As a person blessed with good health for almost my entire life, this is very frightening for me, so anything you can share will be eagerly read and digested.
