I’ve changed my mind about the dislocation cause…you may not remember that I was less than 3 months from my left knee replacement (when my dislocation occurred).

After two hip replacements in 5 weeks, I will hopefully never know more about hip replacement than I do now. Right now I’m 12 days post-op hip #2. Both were the Birmingham Hip Resurfacing, so may not exactly apply to you. So here’s some of the subtle and not-so-subtle things that you should known.
For me, carrying 25 lbs of recycling to the curb was hurting like hell. If you’re 25 lbs overweight, that’s the … Read the rest
April 8, 2010 – 46yr old scheduled 4/28 with Dr. Brooks in Cleveland. I will be traveling roughly 5 hours from SoCen PA.
