getting first of two new hips this AM. by th he time you read this I should be out of surgery. they start at 5:15am. they s as y as long as I can walk and pee I can leave by noon, walking out,!  they are going to lengthen me too. I was pretty calm before but now that the operation is only 1.5 hours away I'm getting s little excited.  

the Community love you John, pulling for a quick recovery

Good luck, I have had both of mine replaced, it is not that bad. Just don't wait too long for the second one like I did. The hardest part is getting out of bed, just scoot to the bottom of the bed and stand up is the easiest way I found. I hope they send pretty girls to your house after the operation to check on you like they did for me. :lol: DON~~~

Don’t rush your recovery. Take your time. Read books on back hoe operation or something fun.

Good to hear it went ok.

Get the other one done as some as possible.

 

So here is what not to do to an excavator:
