Nervous about talking to my doc

Hi everyone,

This is my first post.  I’m scheduled for anterior THR on 4/19.  I developed late-stage OA after breaking my femoral neck in a bike accident last spring.  I found a really good surgeon but at my first appt. with him he advised strongly against running after the surgery.  I have a pre-op with him in a couple of weeks and I want to be honest with him about my desire to try running again, I think it’s important that he knows I will be running.  I’m really nervous about telling him, though, and even afraid he’ll refuse to do the surgery.  Does anyone have tips for talking to your surgeon or feedback on how you handled this?… (Click Here to View Full Post and Comments)
