Tuesday, its preop day, and talking to the surgeon, so I am curious also to know if the hip will be cemented or not, I believed at the class I went, the nurse was saying what surgeon was using this or that, and I think mine is not cemented,but I was trying to absorbed as much as much as I could, and she was passing around the actual prosthesis, heavy and looked so big, my mind was racing, and I was starting to look for the exit door.

Kiki, will your hip be cemented or uncemented. That makes a difference as to when you can be weight bearing.

Have a great time on your trip.

Who told you that? After my replacement, I
was using both feet to walk. "Up with the good,
down with the bad" was a saying PT used to
teach us which foot to begin with when we
encountered stairs and curbs.
a person in the grocery store who was asking
me about my cane, she proceed to tell me
about her Grand- Mother having both hips
replaced at the same time, any one on this
I have read it here is ASA. I hope the person
who had both hips replaced at the same time
is still hanging around/lurking and will speak up.
Have you visited http://www.totallyhip.org yet?
Gotta run.....we're late getting started on the trip.
