I live in Oregon and I am looking for an Orthopedist who will do hip replacement. My BMI is over 40. I do exercise at least 3 or 4 days a week, and I am eating fairly healthy. I have been unable to lose weight. I am on pain medication, and it seems like most dr's would rather me be on pain meds than to do the surgery. I have been on pain meds for many years. I currently use a walker and a mobility scooter. I am so tired of being in pain and being told to lose weight. I am doing what I can, but the pain is getting so bad. I am tired of being on pain meds that really are not helping a lot. Is there anyone that can recommend an Orthopedist in Oregon or Washington? I have grandkids and I get down on the floor and play all of the time, but I am in so much pain. Any suggestions at all?
