37 yr. female. Scheduled for Anterior THR in 3 weeks

I'm having an Anterior THR in 3 weeks for stage 4 AVN of the right hip. I am 37 years old, have 3 small boys and will have the surgery one week before Christmas in Houston, TX with Dr. Stefan Kreuzer. My main concern is my current weight. I am 5'7" and weigh 190 lbs. Has anyone had this surgery when they were significantly overweight like me? I have an 8 month old baby, and never lost the weight that I gained after he was born, and have extremely limited mobility because of the AVN. I would really appreciate any encouragement! I'm getting a little nervous, although I am very excited by the prospect of re-gaining the ability to play with my kids, pain free!
