Feeling Anxious: Hip Replacement

by Nancy
(Texas)

This really isn’t about retirement but about people who are at that age. I have recently been advised to get a hip replacement. Can anyone out there give some support?

I am anxious about it and it would be super if someone could give me some positive thoughts that have gone through this.

Thank you!!

hip replacement
by: Lynn

I had never had surgery and was terrified. Found a wonderful Dr with an almost zero infection rate (very important some hospitals have a poor record and infection is a big cause of major problems).

Went well and within a month I was walking a mile. Feels like my own hips, now have a second replacement and same dr and hospital and excellent results. One was done in 2008 and the other 2017. same Dr and hospital, same wonderful results.

Good luck!
