What is the Conformis Hip that you speak of?

I am trying to find out exactly how they are given – Found one on U Tube, but that was scary – Will call the office today and ask what the procedure is. I am a nurse so know a little bit about a lot – but don't know Ortho.

Thank You JK – How painful are they? I have a high tolerance for pain, but so many say they are so painful.'

Thank You Jay— I have had 1 hip replacement and it went so well – was walking w/o devices in 9 days. Have a conservative Dr. so he gave me this option for now. Am trying to decide if I want to wait maybe 6 mos. for the surgery. I appreciate your reply.

Has anyone had any experience with cortisone shots to hold off on having their hip replaced? Pros and Cons please.

Thanks for asking Colleen. She is back in a home and her left side is immobile – we think she may have had a TIA last week and that is what caused the stroke like symptoms. She sleeps about 18 hrs/day now. Doesn't talk a lot, but still knows us all. Has to be totally cared for – does eat, but makes a huge mess and always needs help. It is so very sad to see her like this. I guess it's all the normal progression. I hope peace will come to her sooner rather than later.. Very tough to see her husband and siblings watch her also.
