Sat, Jan 26 9:07am · Hip Resurfacing Surgery in Bones, Joints & Muscles

Thanks for your reply! Hoping our guy improves this initial hurdle, he too, very active bow hunter, early 60's, thought this would be a better procedure than hip replacement for him, meanwhile having a heck of a time just with post op.

My brother-in-law is 3 days post op from hip resurfacing surgery. He is having many challenges including severe pain and exhaustion. Any insights if you have had this surgery what could be happening? He was discharged one day after surgery and told the pain is expected. He's on pain medication, icing, trying to move then pain level hits a 10. Thanks in advance for any insights.

Aug 10, 2017 · Treating Osteoporosis in Bones, Joints & Muscles

How do you get your general practitioner to pursue further testing? Before I begin medication I want to know why I have osteoporosis based on a DXA scan only. She did a thyroid hormone function test ( 1.02), a celiac disease panel (negative) and a 25 Hydroxy Vitamin D (46 ng/mL). I live where there are not specialists for osteoporosis. Any thoughts? Thanks!

Apr 3, 2012 · Uterine Fibroids in Women's Health

I’m also 52 years old suffering with fibroids. I’m currently taking a birth control pill so I can reduce the number of periods from monthly to about every 2 1/2 months. I still have heavy, heavy periods, cramping, and end up mildly anemic afterwards. I have had MRI’s, ultrasounds, hysterscopes and a D&C over the past 5 years. I have 3 fibroids, 3-6 cm. in size, 2 located within my uterus. I do not want to have a hysterectomy. My doctor referred me to another specialist and they recommended to take LUPRON to shrink the fibroids and then have surgery to try to remove them. Has anyone taken Lupron, or similiar drugs to shrink your fibroids before surgery? Personal stories of taking this drug on the interenet, sound terrible! Has anyone had the Focused Ultrasound Surgery to dissolve fibroids, what was it like? Did your health insurance cover the procedure? Thank you for any input!
