Hi Cass,I TOTALLY get the looking normal part! Everyone I know looks at me funny when they find out that I'm having this done. I too have a very high tolerance for pain (soon to be truly tested...) and it's also not like it just kicked in overnight. I'm sure you're like me - the pain dial has been ever so slowly cranked up over the years so that what you notice are the sharp jags that have increased in frequency and not the underlying constant gnawing pain. I also feel like being the girl with the bad hips doesn't define me, so I don't wear it on my sleeve which is also why it's such a surprise to others. That said, since I've seen Dr. Buly, I think about the surgery CONSTANTLY!best of luck,LH a.k.a. Hip Chick NYC
