More hip surgery word of a lie.

After having had 3 pelvic reconstruction which would kill your average middle aged female, 2 hip scopes and 2 screw removals(along with 7 wrist reconstructions which we won't count), I have to go back in again! :-(

This time I have to get all the metal hardware I have in my life left hip. They need to do an MRI-Arthrogram again(same thing, I've had about a dozen done over the years), but they can't do it with the metal in there. That means 5 screws are coming out. Crazy eh!

Gosh! You better start playing the lottery or something, 'cause you better have a BIG break coming your way!

It has been raining for a long time! I've got a fantastic support group(thank God).

Omgosh I'm sorry for that :-(. You've gone through so much.

Really hope it'll be the last one.

Thank you appreciate the support. It's really silly that in this day and age, with the technology we have, we still can't do these simple scans without having to go under the knife. Really a stupid risk over such a lack of performance which unfortunately the price the patients have to pay.

Thanks for all the support everyone.
