Subject: Hip replacement questions

Hi everyone, I have an appointment with the surgeon on 8th March about me maybe having my right hip replaced. Anyone have any suggestions about things I needs to ask him? Is there anything in particular I need to know?

Hi Verity,

I am on the same position but I am actually having my left hip replaced in March and my right one wil be done the year after.

I looked back at old threads and Jill suggested a site to someone called bone smart. I have found it really useful and there is a forum on there that has people on that have had hip ops done and they are really helpful.

Let me know how you get on. I know if your feeling like me you must be really scared!
