Have you decided on whether you want to do the next hip yet or knees?

Thanks Debbra, Saw my local ortho yesterday. Hip is not a candidate for stem cell, no joint space. Both knees are as I still have joint space. I will move forward with hip surgery (total hip, anterior approach) and will go for stem cell treatment on my knees in about 6 months, depending on my rehab from my hip sx. So I'm at least moving forward and am happy that my knees still have joint space – learning a new language it seems. Thanks to all for your kind assistance.
