"I Can Play With My Grandson"

Before surgery, I couldn't do much without pain. Pain from my hip was almost constant.

I knew I needed surgery because, I had trouble with everyday tasks. A trip to the grocery store was agony and I could not enjoy time with my grandson. We couldn't go to the park or take walks.

Joint replacement changed my life, Now I do not have joint pain. I can walk, take hikes and play with my grandson. I have started to enjoy life again and have started exercise classes.

After the surgery I was walking within hours and used a walker for only a few days. Soon, I only needed a cane. I am so glad I finally had the surgery and wish I had done it sooner!
