…unless you’re here on the 7th of this month (June 2018 if you’re here from the future) in which case it’s happening / it happened this morning, or after the 7th it already happened.
It’s pretty routine surgery, so the chances of things going hinky are low.
This could be the end of about a quarter century of limping and inconvenience, about a decade and a half of significant chronic pain, and six or seven years of constant major chronic pain.
Fingers crossed, but not legs since they tell me that can dislocate a new metal hip if done before everything is healed sufficiently.
Peace, and I hope to be posting here as a cyborg a few days after the 7th.
