I’m a very active person. I cycled, swam and did yoga up until the surgery. The difference was that I would do it while hobbling along, walking in pain and gritting my teeth.
After the surgery, the minute I was back on my feet, I knew that pain in my hip was gone. I could move again without having intense joint pain.
As I healed on my right hip, my left hip started to deteriorate even more. It was hurting me so much that I didn’t want to do anything. So I knew I was making the right decision to get the left hip replaced.
When the left hip was done, I could move without pain… everything was easier. Even the small things like going to the grocery store, shopping, just taking a walk or getting out of bed in the morning. Life is better!
