“Managing expectation is the key,” says Leanne. “If you are grateful for having the replacements which will in time make your quality of life better than before, you will have a better outcome.” She knows having a hip replacement includes risk but it is a risk worth taking. She felt it was “liberating” to be out of so much pain. She was able to visit her son who was living in Lebanon and go on a bike trip through Morocco. Before having the surgery, she didn’t think she would have been able to sit on such a long flight. Leanne feels she is able to live her life with less regrets than she otherwise might have.
