RE: Sitting on the figurative dock of the bay, waiting for the surgeons scalpel, one thinks of many things,

My advice is to take a little painkillers as possible. I am not talking about getting addicted, it is a much older thing much forgotten.

Pain is the body's way of telling the brain and thus the hormones and whatever else to send help to repair the damage. ANY surgery is a trauma to the body even if you are unconscious, it still feels it even if you are not aware.

I have avoided pain killers most of my life, I won't even take an aspirin.

I was shot in the face by a .38 in 1985. I WALKED into that hospital and told them no pain killers or sedatives. This bullet went through me and is still in the back of my neck. Imagine the pain. But I was out of the hospital in five days. The only pain killer was friends bringing me beer.

I know people get desperate. Ex buddy of mine. He had pneumonia/pleurisy so bad they opened him up and stuck a drain tube in him. he had a morphine-o-mattic and always was a drughead. Maybe not addicted much but he certainly got to liking that shit too much.

Then he decodes he wants some weed and wants me to bring it. now I didn't want to kill him, we were cool then. now I don't want to kill him after all he has done screwing me over I want him to live to be 100, in Depeds, can't eat what he wants, can't walk. He had a heart attack andis diabetic, so far so good.

But he had tubes sticking out his lungs into a collection bag. If he started coughing he could die from ripping up this stuff inside him. Not only did I not want to do that I also gave some thought to the situation. Here he is, they got cameras all over the place even back then and they would know I was there. They would figure out I brought him illegal stuff that killed him. They would have crucified me. Not sure of the law then but if it was a felony, any death is first degree murder in this state.

I think that actually proves he didn't give a shit about me.

Anyway a hip replacement is very invasive, you will probably have pain in parts of your body you never knew existed. Do not fall into the pain killer trap. Only use what you really NEED and you will recover faster.

Also get the brand of the artificial hip they use so if there is a class action lawsuit later you might get a check. :-)

All in all, good luck with this. I mean that.
