From Fusion to Hip Replacement

Hi Everyone, Here's my story - I'm just gonna get to the point. I went to a specialist because I was told I needed a fusion in my lower back. It turns out that my back was still ok from my laminectomy 5 yrs. ago, but that I needed both my hips replaced ASAP!!!!! Naturally this specialist doesn't do hips - so now on Nov. 5th I see a hip specialist.

Anyway could someone please tell me from their experience, what happens from when you wake up in recovery to the next few days? I have a tendency to imagine every worst possible thing that can go wrong and run with it.

I'm really scared about this. I'm 58 yrs. old and I used to be fearless about things like this - but not anymore!

Thanks so much, Mary
