GETTING HIP is a personal account of one woman's recovery from a total hip replacement. From the painful deterioration of her joint, to making the difficult decision to have surgery, Macdonald takes us with her on her postoperative journey. She discusses preparation for hip surgery, potential complications of the operation, and provides a detailed description of her rehabilitation. Also included are interviews with ten people worldwide who have had hip replacements. GETTING HIP is written with wit and candor. It offers useful tips for coping physically and psychologically with hip surgery, as well as important information about how to treat a new hip in order for it to last as long as possible.
