I am 53 5 foot 11 and 340 pounds with a BMI of 47. My hip has been bone on bone for three years and I have now been turned down by three surgeons in the Atlanta area over the last two years it’s pretty hard to lose weight, when you can’t stand for more than 20 minutes, I’m desperate to find a good surgeon that can fix my hip. I have no other health issues that are holding me back other than the BMI. Has anyone had their hip replaced in or around Atlanta with a higher BMI Than 40 my muscle mass is much higher than most guys my age which accounts for some of the extra weight. I have gained 50 pounds of this weight since my hip started bothering me about 3 1/2 years ago. I have insurance that will pay for it here but I’m about ready to fly to Singapore and pay the 40,000 to get it done there.
