    Believe me I am the biggest skeptic out there and did a lot of research online , but couldn't find any negative reports or claims it was a load of nonsense , also I doubt BUPA would pay for a treatment that didn't work, so far so good and only been two weeks.

    I was and am 49 when I had both hips done, the first time last April I didn't know what to expect , so as I live alone I booked a week following discharge in a nursing home which was one of gods waiting rooms for the elderly. It was counter productive as being waited on hand and foot meant I...
