Hip, hip… um, hooray!

Great. I was informed today by my ortho that finally I now have a surgery date: May 6. Yay!

So there you go… if you have catastrophic joint failure and require “emergency” total hip replacement, it will only take a mere five months or so to get the problem attended to.

Just another two months of mind-bending agony, discomfort and excruciating pain to go…

Note: The video, gruesome as it is, just depicts a “resurfacing” procedure. I shudder to think what’s involved in the actual surgery when total replacement is involved.
