  • Put it off as long as I could

    Guess I'm not superman after all. Went to the doc today and my right hip is bone on bone and has to be replaced. Between COPD and my parts wearing out it's getting tough.

    This was still a kick in the teeth

    Oily,
    Do not wait as long I did. Do it now.
    I was 2 1/2 days in the hospital. After 2 weeks I walked in the Dr's office without a cane. He gave permission for me to drive again. It made me 20 years younger. Should have done it 3 years earlier.
    Many I am sure will keep you in their prayers as I will.

      Rob, I know so many people who have gotten "replacement parts", and were so much better off after it was done. Why be in pain when you don't have to?

      Can't be easy, and certainly isn't fun, but you know we're all here for you. Hope that helps a little.

          Hi Rob,
          I had both my hips done,still walk with a cain, but the main thing is I can walk. I consider myself lucky thay can replace some bits when thay are worn out. Next thing I need is a brain transplant and I will be good for another 72 years. The secret for a long life is ......Keep breathing....and enjoy it. ............all the best ....Geoff3

            A hip replacement is not to bad I had to have one 23 years ago and it is still going better than ever. Once your fully recovered you will wonder why you didn't do it sooner.

              yup I have to do it. My concern is breathing during the hot, humid weather coming is tough enough. It would be nice to be in less pain for awhile, Between back, hip and knees the past 10 years have been a thrill.

                Rob, I wish you the best...sounds like this operation is way over due. I saw the Heart Dr. the other day and he said my heart is as good as a 24 yr. old man....sure wish the rest of my body was even close to that age. My wife suffers from COPD so I know what you are going through. God be with you through all this.

                  I agree with the rest of the gang. You'll be happy with the result even if getting to it isn't a lot of fun. Before you know it, you'll be the Bionic Man!!!!!!!

                      Hey Rob - sure this is not a ploy to get more mobility to chase the girls?

                      Go for it pal. You'll feel so much better after the op. Best wishes!

                            Thank you so much for the caring and encouragement, you have no idea what you all mean to me. I feel more welcome here with my friends on this forum than I feel where I live.

                                Hi Tango. What model scroll saw do you have? I know the model I bought used is a 226-M. I can't find any information on it because it'd so old. Right now I'm trying to determine the H.P. of the motor used to run these scroll saws. Can you look on yours to see what H.P. voltage, and rpm the motor is?...

                                He did therapy for 4 weeks then at home for another 2 to get his legs ready for the surgery. The therapist called today her first inhome appointment is Thursday. Hopefully the other knee will be within a few weeks. He has an amazing resolve so I expect him not to need the walker or cane in 2 weeks....

                                I wish Bruce a speedy recovery. If his recovery is similar as that of a friend he will be up and around in no time at all. My friends is over weight and had both knees done 5 days apart. Physical therapy helpd alot.
