"It Has Been a True Life Changer"
I was in complete agony prior to surgery. I could barely walk and even sitting hurt. I tried to walk and golf but did so under extreme pain.
My turning point into getting surgery was when I went snowboarding with my sons, and they talked me into going ice skating. Big mistake. After that I was under extreme pain.
After joint replacement surgery, I went on a European vacation with my wife, where we walked up to 10 miles per day. I can now walk 18 holes of golf with no problem. It has been a true life changer.
Don't put off seeing your doctor either, it is well worth it.
