Dec 19, 2017 · Has anyone had sharp thigh pain after hip replacement in Joint Replacements

I’m scheduled for hip replacement in February and am wondering whether those who are having pain had anterior or posterior incisions. Best of luck to them.

Your doctor sounds great–can you give his contact information, location and any other relevant information. Thanks so much!

Jan 20, 2017 · Stem Cell Therapy for Arthritic Knees in Bones, Joints & Muscles

I’m trying to decide/gather information about stem cell therapy for grade 4 osteoarthritis in the hip. I would like to hear from people who have had stem cell injections and how effective it was. Why stem cells are usually taken from bone marrow instead of fat which supposedly has many more cells? How long is it expected to last? I would appreciate hearing from all who have any comments–thank you!

Hello, I have grade 4 osteoarthritis in my hip at age 71–healthy otherwise. What aerobic exercises can I do without causing more damage to my joints (besides in water), length of time and frequency? Also type of physical therapy moves for strength, flexibility and frequency that would be helpful. Thank you!

Jul 12, 2016 · Frequent UTI in Kidney & Bladder

I’m not sure if it’s me you’re asking where I learned about D-Mannose but a friend connected me with her New Zealand pen pal of 50 yrs who has had UTI problems and it is from her that I first heard/learned about it. She suggested I check it out which I did. I mentioned it to my GP who had heard of D-M but didn’t know it was used for UTI’s, she found a study on it and since has suggested it to many of her patients with UTI problems. I mentioned it to my urologist who had no reaction either way–I almost wondered if they were worried about losing so many patient visits–I know I sure had a lot of them previous to D-M.
Interesting to see you’re Iowa, so am I.

Jul 11, 2016 · Frequent UTI in Kidney & Bladder

To maintain, no UTI, I put 1 teaspoon in 4 oz. cold water, stir to
dissolve, at bedtime. I drink it right down–little if any taste. I
assume my bladder is emptied the most at bedtime and gives D-Mannose time
to work. I think the reviews of it on give good ideas on how
different people prefer to take it. I drink only cold water so that’s just

If I notice the very beginning an infection, I increase frequency (haven’t
had to do this for a long time). I take 1 t in water about 3 times a day
for a couple days and drink plenty of water during the day, then taper off
to maybe 2x/day for a couple days. I just go by any signs of UTI. It may
cause some bloating when increased a lot so whatever you’re comfortable
with. But do read the reviews for ideas of what will work for you–not
just on the package you bought but others listed, too.

I was to the point where they had to “pull out the big antibiotics” in
order to get them to work–talk about stress! This works best for me–not

Good luck and I’ll be glad to answer any questions if I can!
