Two days out to my surgery...
« on: November 05, 2011, 04:25:22 PM »
Well, I'm getting my right hip resurfaced Monday morning at 10:20 with Dr. Snyder at Newton Wellesley Hospital in Massachusetts.  I'm def. anxious and nervous and not looking forward to the surgery but def. looking forward to a quick recovery.  My life revolves around the Martial Arts and I'm dying to be able to train again pain free in the next 4-6 months.  It will be awesome to get my life back and my range of motion.  Hopefully everything goes wel and I don't have any complications.  BRING IT ON!!!!

Good luck!  I think you will find that the surgery is nowhere near as bad as you imagine it will be, and you will be so glad you had it done!

Best of luck with your surgery and recoery Woodstock. 

I'm now just over 12 hours out from my surgery and surely nervous.  I'm hoping for the best and can't wait for it to be over.  No more waiting and wondering as tomorow is the fist step to a healthier life.

Pistol,

The waiting is almost over, and shortly you can begin working on your recovery. no way to avoid the nervousness.

Best of luck on your surgery. There are a lot of Hippys and soon to be Hippys thinking about you now. All positive, hoping you a safe trip to the other side.

I am less than 4 hours from my surgery and I'm soooooo nervous.  I hope all goes well and I have a speedy recovery.  I can't recall ever being this nervous in all my life.

Best wishes for a speedy recovery, Pete.  Choose the ice cream not the jello.  Curt

Best of luck from another martial artist, Pete - you're getting done now, all good thoughts for you. Let us know how you're doing afterwards. The staff at Newton-Wellesley is great.
