Okay, in two weeks I get my right hip replaced. Before I drive my brain out of my skull with worry, will I be able to wade, safely? I don't intend to do Class 4 rapids, will get a wading staff and will get the proper boots (that's a topic for another thread!). So, out there from the people I trust, what can I expect? As I say, I'm trying not to drive my poor wife crazy with my worry, she'll have enough on her own!
