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.

5 days and I will be a bilat!
« on: February 15, 2012, 01:07:35 PM »
I took a tour of the new "Center for Joint Excellence" where I will be on Monday. All new rooms, new large PT area, lunch room for patients that want to get out of their rooms and shower stalls in each bathroom.
 
I will have the same PT and nurses inpatient and will see the same outpatient PT as I did less than a year ago.   The only change is the doctor since Dr. Sheehan retired. 

I am ready!!

That's great, Neil... congrats on the upcoming freedom from OA. Who's your Doctor?

Welcome, Neil, aboard the Bilateral Express.  You will love it, once the pesky healing is out of the way!

The first on was done by Dr. Sheehan, he did the first resurfacing in Illinois.  Since he retired I am having a Dr. Alden doing the second one.  He moved here from the Mayo clinic where he was doing research on resurfacing.

Tomorrow afternoon is it.  I actually get to eat breakfast, the first time I did not have to be NPO after midnight.
