Before her surgery Mimi’s family saw her moving around easily at a party. They thought she didn’t need the surgery but Mimi knew better. After the surgery, Mimi felt “surgical pain” but not that bone on bone pain every time she moved. Her relief was immediate. Mimi walked the day-of her surgery even though she was very nervous her hip would not hold her up. But, to her surprise, she was able to walk as the nurses asked.
