I joined SP a few weeks ago to lose weight! I know (don't we all) that I would be so much better off generally with my mobility if I lose weight. I had my hip replacement when I was 46 which was 15 years ago.
I can help you with motivation and also as I am a qualified hypnotherapist I can teach you albeit in written form ways of helping yourself .. the mind has immense power and it will believe whatever we tell it to so start telling yourself that this hip replacement is going to improve your life. Just as we are being taught here to feed our bodies with good healthy food.. please give your mind the same considerations.. by thinking healthy positive thoughts.
I had a longer message here but deleted it for now .....anyone who was in the middle of reading it I apologise.. I just thought it was too long for an introduction! It was about my journey to my hip replacement which was a long and arduous one .. but all I was really trying to demonstrate was that if you are determined and you follow all the advice from your health practitioners to the letter that all will be well. Believe that the best possible action will come out of it all.
There will be days when it feels like you are literally walking in lead boots through puddles of treacle and that the tunnel seems to be a very long one some days....have faith .. you will get there and it will all be worth it in the long run! I cried many hot tears of frustration in my rehab days ..I had to have major reconstructive surgery as had been born without an acetablum (hip socket) and my hip replacement was my 1st but it was my 5th hip operation, my 1st was aged 13 months. So the point I am making is stick with it.. cry if you want to when the going gets tough...ithe tears will bring some relief...and remember that its all a means to an end and will be hugely worth it!
Take care Blessings
