Well hello there! I am new to the forum as well. My grandmother just underwent a total hip replacement a couple of months back and it is a burden, as I can see on her side.
I have recently been diagnosed OA though no further action has been considered yet as we prefer to look into things longer just so we could figure out which should be taken into better and deeper consideration.
Sorry about that No only my right hip the left is ok at the moment (sort of) You are right though my surgeon said that only one would be done at a time. I too couldn't walk for the 2 months leading up to my op and was on crutches for approx 8 months in all, I am still on them but not suffering as much hip pain as I was... thankfully Here is a link to the BHR and THR http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hip_resurfacing I hope it helps, do you know which way the anaesthesia will be administered yet ? Thankfully due to my neck/back problems I was knocked out and didn't know a thing until I woke up 8)
