2nd replacement tentatively set for Feb, 2013

Earlier this week, I had a fresh set of Xrays taken and spoke with Dr Huddleston, the surgeon who performed my first replacement. The Xrays confirmed what I already knew; I am bone-on-bone. The procedure is to be the same as the last one. I might as well get it done sooner rather than later… Still in a lot of pain but at least there is light at the end of this tunnel. Looking at the Xrays of the replaced side, the doc explained that 3 years into their study at Stanford (where I’ve been going for all my hip operations), they have had no reports of any problems.
