My mom of 88 years made excuses and did not fix her hip when she could. Don't go there, take care of your bride and yourself. Quality of life is what it is all about. Let us know more.

My Dad had both knees replaced at the same time by Dr. Longnecker in Exeter. He also did several other people I know. All with excellent results.

Definitely get that second or 3rd opinion. And down towards Philly they have some excellent doctors as well. Do not delay, get on the phone now !!!!!

And I feel extra shitty because I gave up a hip replacement operation date on 1/9/2012 for her because I rather she get fixed before me. Then the bone cement didn't hold here knee cap in and it ends up like this. I really think I'm the cause.


Im sorry to hear this Joe, Not much can fix the initial pain & disappointment you both are going through right this minute. Take some of the good advise about second opinions but most of all I can promise you one thing 100%... Time will heal mind & body and you WILL be OK! I (and many folks) have known close friends be devastated by bombs, loss of limbs and more and though things may be different, in time you will get through this, be stronger, more loving, closer and enjoy life for every day you each share the same air! I know thats hard to see & realize right now on this day :( BUT I PROMISE THIS TO BE TRUE! hang in their with her, support her get through this together... the good days & times WILL BE THEIR AGAIN! (in whatever form god has planned for each of you)... :inlove:

Joey, sometimes the Creator throws stuff at us that don't make a lot of sense--he has also given us the brain power to do ALL the leg work needed--get done with the guilt nonsense & GET that 2nd & 3rd diagnosis--Even though a lot of them think so----Dr's ain't hardly Gods. Get back up, dust yourself off & get movin on that. Be SUPPORTIVE Joe! PLEASE keep us posted. Later my friend
