Welcome Back

The Hip Talk Discussion Forum was hacked a few weeks back. It has taken me a long time to fix it. The only backup I could use was way back to April 2020. All members and posts up to that date are available. Anything newer has been lost. I am sorry, but that has been the only way to get things up and running again.

follow-up doctor in US
« on: September 07, 2007, 06:04:35 PM »
Hi -- I'm planning to go to India.  Those of you who have gone to Dr. Bose, did you have a doctor here in the states to follow-up with afterwards?  I asked Dr. Bose and he replied I would send the xrays to him but what if I need to see a doctor?

Hi Joy,

I have just seen my local primary care doc to get my x-rays and order PT when I needed it.  I have not had any need to see a doctor for my hip.  Dr. Bose is great at responding to emails so after surgery if you have questions you can email him and he usually responds within 24 hours if he is in town.  I have not heard of anyone that went to Dr. Bose that ever needed to see an ortho here after having had surgery with him.  You should join the India surface hippy site and read all the posts from many of Dr. Bose patients.

For some reason my browser has not been able to display this spreadsheet properly. Any chance you can put it in another format?

Hi

This discussion group is still small and I doubt you will get an answer from anyone that is in the Kaiser insurance program. There is a very large discussion group called  Yahoo Surface Hippy Discussion Group of over 6000+ members  http://health.groups.yahoo.com/group/surfacehippy/   I know some people on that group have had hip resurfacing surgery in the Kaiser program - I think.

I would join it and ask the same question.  Be ready to receive over 100 emails a day from that group. It is best to set up a folder on your email service to send the mail to or it gets all mixed with your regular email.  You can also just elect to go to the Yahoo website and read the mail or get an condensed version of all the replies.  There is a lot of help there and many very supportive people.

I am sorry that I can't give you more information.
