Hey Rusty, thanks so much for your feedback. It’s crazy how many people are in their late 40s early 50s and getting a replacement. I spoke to two friends today that both had their hips replaced this past year – they are both two years younger than me. Both said it has been the best thing they have ever done. Scary at first but overjoyed at the results. I wish it was as simple as that but it never really is – right. We all have varying degrees of pain on any given day and Somehow we adjust and get used to it. There in lies my problem. I’m grateful there are so many like you that share their experiences so I can gauge what exactly “feels right“. For now I still have two months so I’ll weigh the pros and cons as I get closer to the date. Thanks again for your thoughts much appreciated!
