I'm 42 and having a THR in 8 weeks time.I have suffered from Hip Dysplasia and Arthritis in it for 5 years now,but have kept putting the operation off due to my age.
The pain is now unbearable at times,but I am unable to take the cocktail of drugs prescribed to me as the side effects are worse than the pain!
My question is,I am due to attend a wedding 8 days after surgery,is this possible,and what state will I be in?!
I am scared that by having the surgery,my hip/leg will never be the same again,and my mobility will be compromised.
I look forward to hearing from others who have gone through it,and come out the other side smiling
