Well, after six months of being messed around and waiting i finally have a date for my hip replacement ..... 10th August!

Provided it doesnt get cancelled (fingers crossed!)

I'm so nervous at the moment, the surgeon wants to do it under a spinal - im not to sure about that!

I cant believe tho after 15 years of OA it will finally be getting behind me!

Just thought i would share my exciting news!!

    Hi
    Thats great news soon it will be all over for you, thats a very long time to let you suffer with your hip, Although I have suffered with OA for for 16 years in my back I have only suffered with it in my hips for approx 18 months and I know that I am quiet lucky to have been referred to the consultant as quick as I have and to be getting a replacement this quick.
    Anyway it will soon be all over for you, just look to the future when you have recovered from the op and are on the road to being "back to normal". I will be worth it in the end......or so everyone says and dont forget you are not alone, the support network is here for you.
