Today is the first anniversary of my hip replacement. I cannot begin to tell you how very grateful I am.
To think....that I once gave the notion of continuing to suffer in endless pain rather than surgery. Upon reflection I see just how ludicrous that thought is.
Fearfulness is something that needs to be put to rest by each an every one of us in our own way. I chose something that was something like an out of body experience.
It wasn't until I had recently visited the hospital on my third trip that I realized that is where the surgery took place. I couldn't tell you anything about the experience. Which is probably a good thing. If you are a surgical nurse I'm sure you hear this often.
All I can say is that if this hip replacement is in your future go ahead. I've never felt better about a decision in my life. Don't wait, as I did, making one excuse after another, the result can be hazardous to your health.
It's raining, it's raining....fall is here. Play nice. RD
