    Had my left hip replaced last Thursday and got home yesterday. I was so nervous about it, but now I'm actually looking forward to getting the right done on July 10th.

    Hip replacements are no joke. Are they going to put you through physical therapy?

    I feel great except the pain from the surgery. I've had osteoarthritis in my hips for prolly about 4 years. It got progressively worse over the years. Only found out last year what was causing the pain. The surgeon said the ball of the femur was nowhere near round, which I could see in the xrays. I told him to take a picture of the right one when he takes it out next month.

    They're going to come to my house. He said for now it'll just be improving mobility. In about a month they'll start with strengthening. He said since I'm young, 37, I will have no problems. I was really nervous before the surgery, now I can't wait for the next one.

    He said they are metal on metal and should last 30+ years. It's definately going to make it easier hiking up to section 304 come the fall.

    I thought you were going to say vasectomy.

    Good Luck. Be patient. Physical therapy takes time to work.
