I've been gone for 30 days.
On April 29th. I had my hip replaced. The operation went well. Not much pain or discomfort just the hassle of learning to walk, one baby step at a time. I'm now using a cane and getting around quite nicely. I still can't drive, and may not be allow to for two or three more weeks. The nice thing about the operation is that it has eliminated the hip pain that I had for a year before the surgery.
