Well, It's finally Happening

After a very long wait and a few issues this week, I am finally having my Hip Replacement surgery tomorrow, I am excited and nervous at the same time,But I cant wait to be able to do things I haven't been able to do in a long time and to do things to the Bird that Ive been wanting to do. Say a little prayer for me so I can get back ASAP, Thanks Guys and Girls

That was quick !, hope the rehab goes great and that you`ll be back to normal soon , I also need to get my hip fixed , I am at that point where just getting my socks in or out is a painful chore , working on my cars leaves me in pain for a couple of days afterwards , ( I just replaced the harmonic balancer on my Grand am ) .

I had the same story as you, It hurt to do anything, I hope you can get the replacement if needed, I am already walking with a cane with little to no pain and I had the surgery on Jan 11, If you have any ??s you can PM me.
