Hip Replacement Surgery & Recovery Time

For a couple of years I had been dealing with an issue that was diagnosed as sciatic nerve problems.  The pain became worse and off I went to find a second opinion.   The new doctor ordered imaging on my lower back and hip area.  My doctor found out the real problem.  It seems I have to have both of my hips replaced at the young age of 34.  I have something called AVN(Avascular necrosis).  Which means I do not get enough blood flow to my hip bones.   There fore I do not have the ability to rebuild cartilage in both of my hips so I must have them replaced.  My left hip has already collapsed and is in pieces.  The right hip is on it's way out now also. When the left is replaced and I am healed, then they will do a replacement on the right hip.  Which is tough and not a great time in my life finacially.  I guess no one plans for something like this.  I have insurance, but it does not cover the whole operation.  I have been denied disability, but am going to keep on trying.  The donation that you provide for me will go for out of pocket payment and for the time I have to take off for recovery for both of my hips.  I would like to thank you for the support and being a part of my life.  Without you I would not be able to get through this.  

Thank you,
