I had legg perties when I was 10. I'm now 36. The pain isn't killing me but it's there. Mainly mornings. I have very limited mobility. I can walk and such, But I cant bend at the hip much.Getting in the car and stuff like that is hard. But I've delt with this my whole life so far.So I really dont know what it would be like to be without this hinderance. I've been told I'll need it at some point (THR) My question is how bad is the surgury? Details please. Before, During and After. I'm scared to death. Just the thought turns me inside out. How long will I be down for. Can I drive? Go to the can? You know, the details. Please e-mail me. Thanks in Advance, Rich
