NEW HIP ORDERED!!!
Yay!!! I got to order my brand new hip today! I have been telling people for months that my hip was causing my pain...but everyone said that my back was causing the problem....thank goodness and thanks to Ben, I went to Dr. Saers. He made an appointment with the hip doctor for me, but I couldn't get in to see him until the 30th....in the meantime, Aunt Toots told me about her friend having a hip replacement by Dr. Hefley. I was able to see him today! He is the only one in Arkansas (next closest, Chicago) that does a hip replacement the way he does. Only a small incision and not even physical therapy afterwards! No cutting through the muscle, so the recovery time is a whole lot better! I will still have to have back surgery after I recover from this, but I really feel like I am on the right track now....maybe there is an end to pain after all! I still believe that I need a whole right side body transplant....but it looks like I am getting that done in small steps, huh? I feel like I am at the right place now....prayers are answered!
