Carol, they say the hip is not quite as bad as the knee. Good idea to start doing exercises to strengthen up. I did not go to rehab but did my therapy religiously. Used the damn walker I think for two days and somehow made it upstairs and down too. Worst is getting in/out of bed and the toilet...aaaaagggh. My bath thingee did not work well...raising the leg to get in/out of bath, another aaaaarggh. But...everyday is better.

But you need someone to help you for the first two weeks, although I think my cousin managed on her own.

Best of luck with the surgery. You will be so happy when you are recovered and good as new.

Hugz, Birgit
