Hip replacement update


Saw the doc today.  Can’t get in for the replacement until early to mid September.

That’s the big news.  The rest of the consultation answered all my questions about type of replacement (titanium and plastic), length of surgery (1 hour), length of recovery (6-8 weeks, although Cousin Ed says shorter), therapy (walk a lot), how long in hospital (couple nights), and how long the replacement lasts (it will probably outlast me).

More later.

Meanwhile, I’s stocking up on ibuprofen and getting the golf clubs ready.
