Today I found the answer to my past question

Wednesday, September 08, 2010

I am frightened. Tomorrow I go in for my hip replacement. I asked the Doctor the question I asked on this blog. Will I weigh more after my hip replacement? He smiled and answered that the new titanium hip will weigh a little more than the bone he will be taking out. SOooooooo I hope that I lose more than I did this week. I only lost .4lb. which is sort of like staying the same. If I can actually lose about 2 lbs.this next week, then the hip replacement should leave me still losing, as he said my gain due to the titanium hip would be under 1 lb.

I am scared of the surgery. I am frightened of the anesthesia. I am frightened of the pain afterwards and while doing physical therapy. God is my companion though and I know that with his help, I will make it through OK. If not, then I pray that he watches over my wonderful husband until we meet again in that far better place. 'Thanks to all my WW friends.

I had a hip replacement 2.5 years ago and it was the best thing. I was able to walk pain free and could do so many things i was not able to for so will do great and feel great!
