    THR Third Time's The Charm!

    Thanks everyone. The kindness here means so much at such a terribly sad time for me. Yes, eventually I am sure I will say good riddance to the bum, but to leave me 2 weeks before Xmas and with me in such pain physically is overwhelming right now. I haven't been in touch here as I can't do...

    THR Third Time's The Charm!

    Thanks Glynis, I do remember you too as at that time Bone Smart was my whole life! I felt that all of you were my real life personal friends. I took things very seriously and wanted to help everyone as I truly knew the worst of hip replacements. Now, I am afraid there is a problem and am...

    THR Third Time's The Charm!

    Well, I think I'm over the worse part of Bill leaving. Timing is everything as the saying goes, and this was really cruel. Enough of him though... On a different note, today was the first time I went out by myself, driving to do errands and I am having a terrible time with pain in my right...

    train wreck facing 2nd hip revision-Help please

    Well, I think I can say I found one! At our first meeting, he laughed and told me he was referred to as the "St. Jude of botched hip replacements" (if you know anything about St. Jude, he is the patron saint of hopeless cases) and by God, I have to say I am now a believer! He fixed me good when...

    THR Third Time's The Charm!

    Thank you. I wish I could feel that positive but for right now, I just can't stop crying. I know, I'm tough and this too shall pass, but my heart is broken and I am in physical pain so it is like getting hit with a double whammy. I'll tell the rest of my story later. I just can't focus...

    I'll be fine, really. I have kids near by. I am sorry to have gone off in the wrong direction. This is a Hip Replacement Forum! Not a lonely hearts club, LOL!

    THR Third Time's The Charm!

    He doesn't feel good about any of this! That is the problem! But, he keeps blaming me! It's all my fault! If only I hadn't said this to him (after the hospital fiasco I wrote an eye opening letter to him) or done that! Like I forced him out! Which I NEVER once said to go. He "knew" I was...

    THR Third Time's The Charm!

    I'm so sad and hurt right now...I have been bawling for six weeks. Today of course is the worse. He just dropped off my car keys after unpacking at his new residence and tried to hug me telling me everything will be alright...HUH??? For who? The old saying "hell hath no fury..." is raging with...

    THR Third Time's The Charm!

    Yup, I said I'd consider, but I am way too hurt to EVER get over this one. Holiday Season and all. Believe it or not, he picked a fight with me in the O.R. waiting room before I was taken in for surgery. I guess I said something that escapes me to set him off. So, when the nurse asked if he...

    THR Third Time's The Charm!

    I have done WAY too much over the past week packing up all of Bill's belongings so I am really paying for it. Strangely enough, my hip has been fine since the first minute out of surgery. But, the soft tissue etc. has been cut, and moved around so much that I have been having a real hard time...

    THR Third Time's The Charm!

    Well, I am six weeks into recovery of my third hip replacement on my right hip. I think I can safely say third time's the charm. It has been a horrific ride for almost four years. It all started with a missed fractured femur on 3/19/10 during my original hip replacement and a revision two weeks...

    Bilateral THR So, what now? Three years later and so it goes on and on

    Worse than ever. Sent everything to Mayo and have not heard a thing. Called the OS back today that I cancelled the revision surgery with that was scheduled for August. I can not go on like this any longer. The pain is unbearable. I am on a lot of Hydromorphone (4mg, every four hours) and...

    Bilateral THR So, what now? Three years later and so it goes on and on

    Thanks Becky. No need to apologize, really. I am open to any suggestions and am going to send all my films and reports to Mayo Clinic in MN as soon as I get another copy. I requested those this morning ASAP!. I had already been in contact with them but have wasted a lot of time and energy...

    Bilateral THR So, what now? Three years later and so it goes on and on

    BTW Jamie, although I couldn't get to NY to the Hospital for Special Surgeries, this doctor did his training there so I feel like I am in good hands AND his specialty is replacement surgery. I will PM you with his name so you can let me know what you think. I have left my former Healthcare...

    Bilateral THR So, what now? Three years later and so it goes on and on

    Well, enough is enough for me! I have said all along if I found an OS willing to re-do my RTHR that was broken during the first surgery, I would do it again to straighten out the damage! BINGO! I found him on Friday. He didn't hesitate seeing and acknowledging everything that I have been...
