I am told I need hip replacement surgery. Told need stable housing for 6 months after surgery. Am in need of all the things I would need help with to recover. Also mentioned I may get sent to a rehab place after surgery to make things easier when I return home. Told will need walker, high seat for toilet, and a bath chair. But sure many other things I need to knowView Thread
I have been told that I have asvascular Necrosis in my right hip and the ball there is worn out. If blood does not flow, how long does that take to do real damage to my leg, as the local hospital takes a very long time to get ok'd for hip replacement surgery. Service at the local hospital is very slow, Have been trying for 8 months to get service, but no luck yet. Any other ways to cure this problem or at least prevent it from becoming worse. Also, how can a person get the blood flowing in their leg again? I am 67 years old and played racquet sports for many years.View Thread
