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.

Scheduled to see Pritchett
« on: January 21, 2011, 05:54:54 PM »
I'm stoked, so I'm telling you all about the latest on my journey.  I spoke with Dr. Pritchett yesterday for alomst 20 minutes on the phone, as if I were a freakin surgeon.  Yeah there were a few acronyms I didn't get, but I got so much info from him and I just couldn't believe I was talking to him and not his assistant.  I can't even get ahold of my primary's assistant and now here I am on the phone with a world-renowned surgeon, talking about the latest in the industry.  Maybe that's not that big of a deal, but when you see all the great stories about the handful of surgeons in the world, I guess you get a little star-struck. 

So I'm scheduled to see him on Tuesday next week, nice long drive up I-5 leaving at o'dark hundred.  If all works out, I may try to spend Spring Break in rainy Seattle getting a new hip.   Sounds like fun, huh? 

I saw Boyd in Salem a month or so ago and I really liked him too.   I think I may be getting fussy with numbers/volume, though.   I don't want to be that way, but on the other hand a little more fuel and time for another opinion, plus I can see a doc who's had three times as many RS's.

I would love to hear about your experiences and reasons for your choice.  I am considering both Dr. Boyd and Dr. Pritchett since I am in Salem.  You can send by private message if you would like.

Four months out with Dr. Pritchett and I'm biking everyday, skiing and snow shoeing up some pretty tough Washington peaks and progressing very well.  Good luck to you and feel free to write me personally if you'd like.  edforssen@charter.net
