Mar 6, 2012 · Hip & knee pain -- when to consider joint replacement? in Joint Replacements

You’re welcome. My replacements have improved the quality of my life greatly. I’ve had degenerative arthritis since I was a teenager and have suffered some level of chronic pain most of my adult life. Since I’m an active person, it was either replacements or pain killers. I didn’t want to be a drug addict!!

My doctor did a fellowship at the Mayo Clinic. He currently practices in NYC at Insall Scott Kelly (ISK). His name is William J. Long. He actually did my right hip (very good results). When I read back my Post I realized I mispoke. My knee surgeon is W. Norman Scott of Insall Scott Kelly….he’s always been in NYC. I’m sorry they’re not local for you. Find a surgeon who only does knees. I think it’s really important.
Good Luck!

Oct 5, 2011 · Osteoarthritis in fingers and knee replacement needed in Joint Replacements

Hi: Thanks, I actually know that cause I love sardines. I also love Costco and I did buy their brand. We’re on the same page. Been to Arizona twice and think it’s beautiful. What bugs me about the hip replacement is that I already have 2 knees and the idea of 1 or 2 more articial joints is bothering me emotionally. On the other hand I don’t like limping around. It makes me look and feel old. Have a good winter!! And thanks for responding.

Yes, thank you. I’m going to try it. My hip has become painful. And just an opinion for your husband’s knee…I have 2 total knee replacements which have been very successful. One is 21 years old and still prfect. The other only 5 years old. I’ve had degenerative arthritis since I was a teenager. First replacement at 39 yrs old to replace badly deformed joint. It’s very painful surgery and rehab but worth it for pain free living. Now my hips are going. I’m going to try the fish oil. Thanks again.

I have 2 total knee replacements. One of them is 21 years old, the other one is 5 years old. I LOVE my knee replacements. No pain, straight legs, full range of motion. Pain level is what drives most people to replacements. As for waiting for advancements, don’t bother, this surgery has evolved greatly and is very, very effective. Rehab is extremely painful but MUST be completed to get the full benefit. You don’t need to keep suffering. My surgeon came from the Mayo Clinic!! Use a surgeon that only does knees. Good luck

That’s awesome. Does this mean you’re not having the knee replacement?

Hi: Anybody out there with knee AND hip replacements? I’ve had both my knees replaced and am considering both hips but I’m afraid. I’d appreciate any input….
