I am probably going to have this done, and I'm scared. I've read some things online that make it seem painful, a lot of rehab, and a lot of restrictions on activity afterwards. Seems like one wrong twist and the whole thing is wrecked.
People on the forum have been kind and encouraging, and one person suggested I ask others what their experience with hip replacement surgery was.
Right now, I'm not in pain, but my walking gait is wonky, and I can't put my foot out far enough for a normal step. Either something is "catching" in the joint, or my body won't let me put full weight on that side.
