Welcome Back

The Hip Talk Discussion Forum was hacked a few weeks back. It has taken me a long time to fix it. The only backup I could use was way back to April 2020. All members and posts up to that date are available. Anything newer has been lost. I am sorry, but that has been the only way to get things up and running again.

Thank You for All the Support and Positive Energy
« on: November 29, 2011, 02:42:05 PM »
It is impossible to find the right words to communicate how grateful I am to have found this website, and all the wonderful people who take the time to post here. The guidance and leadership shown by you Hippys enables Newbies like me to move forward, one day at a time, toward the surgery that will give us back our lives. We all start at pretty much the same place, depressed, confused and terribly afraid. None of these emotions ever really go away, they just have to be overcome. One day at a time.

I'll be afraid and confused tomorrow as I head into surgery, but not nearly as afraid and confused as I was before I found this site. I've picked a good, experienced surgeon, bought a recliner, got my raised toilet seat, crutches and walker, game ready machine and have physical therapy already scheduled twice a week for four weeks. Advice given for all these things by many people on this website. 

Thank you all for the support that enabled me to get to this date. I'll be thinking of you, remembering your positive stories and words of encouragement to each other throughout the day today, and in the morning. What a wonderful support group. I couldn't have asked for more.

Many thanks from Boomer

Good luck with everything.  Just know that every day gets easier and easier.  Once the surgery is over you will know you made the right decision.

Best wishes Boomer!  I was definitely a bit nervous but comforted by the fact that I had done everything I could to insure a good outcome.  It sounds like you have done so as well.

Look forward to reports from the other side.

     Boomer, you are the epitome of what this site is all about.  Kick back and let them take care of you.  Best of luck and can't wait to follow your recovery.
