I'm suprised by the number of people on this board that are in the same situation that I'm in. 52 yrs old been healthy my entire life and had the hip bomb fall on me. I have never spent a night in the hospital my entire life, am scared to death. Sept 30th is my date. I live in Northwest Indiana, did a lot of research on the internet about hip surgeons & hospitals. Although its several hours away decided on Rush Medical Center in Chicago. Anyone have good or bad experience there?
