Busy as usual.. Mulling this over... You know my sister fell broke a chip or there was a crack in her hip. It was noted at the time that she had osteoarthritis. The surgeon decided to pin . I argued with him but he said if the pinning did not work, he would surgery. He would not listen to me. So she went through the walker stage but refused to " help" the PT. She is now in a wheelchair. She says her hip hurts. X-rays show healing and the arthritis.... She will not walk, period. Her life has gone from extremely active to three times a day to the dining room and back to her room now. What is done is done..just double pay from insurance should a THR be preformed.
