New Hips

The first of my new hips is in with minimally invasive surgery. Monday morning they cut me open and removed the top of the femur. Then they installed a titanium apparatus with a new ball into the femur, placed a titanium socket with polyethylene receptacle in the pelvis...Anyway, today I was up walking with my new hip. 
Update...Wednesday 2 PM (2 days after surgery)...I'm home. I have 2, relatively small incisions which were super-glued, so there won't be any scarring from stitches.
