"Best Thing I've Ever Done"
I used to walk approximately 3-5 miles per day with my dog. The pain became so unbearable that I was only able to take her around the block. I was having major difficulty going up and down stairs, walking short distances, sitting ,standing. My entire world as I knew it was falling apart. I thought "I am too young to live this way, something needed to be done."
Having my hip replaced was the best thing I've ever done!!! My advice to others suffering from joint pain is to listen to your doctor and therapist, do the exercises prior to and after surgery, and ice is your best friend!
