A litttle nervous!

  1. I'm having surgery this Fri. I having a right total hip replacement.
    I'm a little nervous. Never had a major surgery before. I have to be in the hospital for 5 days(yuck). The physical therapist told me not to get too depressed because the other pts on the rehab unit will be 40yrs older then me. Oh well maybe I can help them.
    Anyway I won't be on the boards for a while. I'll
    miss everybody.
    We'll see what kind of patient I will be.
