2nd artificial hip failure
geneiebug posted:
I am male, 83 years old, first surgery done poorly; had a revision 10 years ago; for over a year now, joint loosened, use a walking cane and a lot of pain. Initially, 7 months ago two different orthopedists were reluctant (age) to do a 3rd. Later, X-rays, my health history favorable, each consented to "do" a 3rd. After (7 months ago) the level of my hip pain greatly diminished and I decided against surgery. For a week or so, at present, the pain has increased dramatically. (I managed well for quite a while with a walking cane. Anyone "out there," who has a similar experience like mine? If so, are you on a pain relief regimen that really works (non-narcotic). Most health providers take a look at my advanced age and think "he's not long for this world." I'd be eternally grateful for a response! Thanks. .
