It’s been eight weeks since my hip replacement. Over the last weeks, I’ve realized there is a fear of living without pain. A sense that life may be worst than it already is by having a joint replacement. That misconception scares people into dealing with their pain. It sure did for me.
Coming to terms with a hip replacement at 38 wasn’t easy. The weeks leading up to the surgery were very emotional. Despite the intense pain and it affecting my everyday life, I contemplated letting it go. I thought about my Grandma, who had a hip replacement thirty years ago. How she never walked “normal” after that surgery. It scared me.
