  1. Me2


    I've been noticing the donations request to keep BoneSmart here for everyone -- and I must admit my first thought was I can't afford a donation and my little donation of $3 wouldn't really help. Over night I thought about it - like most here, I spend more time thinking at night then sleeping...

    My Shoulders?!!?

    Even before my hips hurt, my shoulders and neck caused problems. :unsure: But, alas, hips took priority ages ago, got them fixed with beautiful star dust, titanium, and ceramic new parts, and thought I was great. :yes!: Then, the back persisted in its scream for attention. :oyvey: Got some of...

    Degenerative Disc Disease/Stenosis

    New question supposedly unrelated to my wonderful new hips (or so says hip and back orthopedic docs): My back is killing me -- what words of wisdom do my BoneSmart friends and families have on degenerative disc disease/stenosis? I have MRI scheduled for Tuesday and then appointment with back...

    Sacroiliac Joint?

    Allrightie: Just went to see pain doctor as information from BoneSmart was leading me to believe that at least the back pain before and after surgery might be from the sacroiliac joint.

    Superpath: Worth Travel? A Dr. Haupt?

    Again, new to site, so please forgive: I was just reading "Need advice on THR surgeon" and a number of people mentioned that Superpath was worth traveling. Exactly information I was looking for. I've found surgeon and hospital I'm mostly comfortable with....as someone else said, the right mix...

    Awake for Surgery?

    Fairly new to BoneSmart, but currently making decision on whether NOW is time to get over it and get surgery done. I've read a couple of the anesthesia thread and noticed several who have been "awake" for surgery. At first, I was so relieved to read general not needed but now really fascinated...
