    Hi Rachel, I had a hip done in 1999,and now ,18 years later,I have had no trouble at all with it.I had a great surgeon,a Mr Collopy ,followed his orders to the letter and so pleased with the result  I believe the after care has changed over the years  ,but If I had to have the other one done ,I would still do what he instructed  me to with the first one

    21st March is the day. I am still in shock at getting an op done so fast as I am a public patient.
    My surgeon is a lovely man, kind and caring. I have no worries about putting my hip in his hands.
    My other hip has arthritis in it so will eventually be needing that done as well.
    I am scared and excited all at the same time. It will be so lovely to not have this constant pain all the way down to my foot and to be able to walk distances again. To not limp nor to take pain killers daily.
    I am looking at it as a new start.

    Rachel, your surgery date will go quickly now that you know when you’re having a new hip inserted – every good wish – do exactly as the Drs. and therapists say and you should be like new 🙂
