Let me know what I can do to help you out Jaybo.

To those who don't know, hip replacement sounds like a bummer, but speaking from experience, when you have the situation that Jeremy has, it is an almost immediate relief.

Just checked. Looks like that'll cut you out of the Ponca comp. We'll try to to extra good in your honor.

Glued,
Good luck and best wishes with the hip replacements. I'd encourage you to get it done pronto ..... when Obama care takes effect, you may or may not be able to get it done ..... based on age etc. Best of all to you. Keep us posted as to how it is going.

If it was government run health care, he prolly wouldn't have qualified for the surgery at his age.:msn-wink:

As far as the government health care comments, Ironically it is:roflmaoha0:

This is all being funded by by Indian health care.:msn-wink:

I'll be so glad to to get this one out of the way so they can do the other hip.

since they both hurt I don't limp, it's more of a waddle. I walk like freaking penguin.

because of my young age they will have to be replaced again in several years.

This is IMPORTANT Jaybo. There are implants out there that do no t need to be replaced. They have replaceable parts.

Replacing an implant is frequently not successful because the bone actually grows into the metal of the implant making it very difficult to remove the old implant without ruining the structure of the bone itself.

If they are telling you that they are using an implant that will need replaced, you really ought to consider getting a second consult before proceeding.

If they use an implant that needs replacement, you could well end up in a wheelchair in 20 years and be there for the rest of your life.

The ceramic parts will have some wear and tear and they will just have to replace those.

Are you supposed to put full weight on it yet? Seems like I remember them limiting the amount of weight I was sposed to put on it at first.

I saw you were on Skype this morning and tried to call. You didn't answer so I just left a message.

Has anyone heard from Jeremy?

Was wondering how he was doing, and this post#25 above was his last.

Saw he was online, but no posting.

Just hoping all went well...

I talked to him a couple weeks after the surgery and he seemed to be healing well.

I have dropped him a few PMs and asked him to call me, but haven't heard back.

I'm glad you brought him up. I'll try to call him today.

The other one is doing awsome! It was amazing how quick I recovered.
I don't seem to have to many problems with it.

Just no more running, jogging or jumping.

Other than that I should be back to a pretty normal life.
