I know our political views are different and I give you chit (except for the Iran thread you started yesterday) but I wish the best outcome possible for you. We're not that far apart so if you need help for anything please don't hesitate to ask for it.

Speak to your doctor about your mental health. I was really sick and after a stay in the hospital I had very high blood pressure. I took BP meds but they did not help, I spoke to the doc about what was going on in my head. She but me on a mild benzo and after 3 months I felt a phuck of a lot better. I no longer take the benzo's either, no need and BP is nice and low again. Sometimes you need a little help to get back on track.

Well, the cardiologist visit went well. Aortic stenosis near critical is now downgraded to below what she called serious. I've got to have a chemical stress test done and if it's even marginal she said the hip operation should be ok. This definitely lifted my fog some. Thanks for the well wishes and advice as for the ones telling me to change my stripes I'd be willing to bet I'm more conservative than most on the bullet. I like fuckin' with people though. Maybe I'll
be able to get the little red bitch goin' this year.

Hopefully this will help ease your mind.

I know every one is different but a coworker of mine (age 60) just had his left hip replaced. 41 years of up and down ladders into well stations, climbing tanks, carrying chemical bags and drums etc took its toll on him. He was in pain, couldn't sleep, was missing time in chunks because the discomfort would flare up, felt unsafe at work, you name it.

His operation, rehab and recovery was 14 weeks total and he was cleared to return to work 100% no limitations.

He was originally going to retire at 62 but he now feels so good he told me he's got at least 5 or 6 more years in him.

Did the pain go away 100%? No. But he said it is night and day difference and he hasn't had this much strength and mobility in years. His biggest issue to overcome was to "trust" the new hip. They got him over that in the rehab/PT regimen.

So good luck and hope for the best ...

BTW he did do a LOT of due diligence with picking the right doctor/team for this procedure.

Glad you got some good news, you're going to feel better almost immediately, the recovery will be much less pain than what your experiencing now. You will likely have some restrictions on how to get up and down and getting in and out of bed and vehicles, I practiced everything beforehand so I had some experience before I came home from the hospital. I also practiced all the exercises I would be doing for recovery. Good luck and get back to your car when you can,

Hip replacements are outpatient surgery these days. I would guess you will have good news coming.
Getting old sure does suck, but even in a wheelchair you can still have a fun life.
Try to lose the doom and gloom, get healthy and try to be positive. Things can change fast with the right state of mind.
Good luck!
Really, Outpatient surgery, thats funny because buddy has to get his right hip replaced due to bone being dead and he will be in the hospital for minimum 2 weeks then rehab after that. and thats what he was told after he had to go to a meeting about the procedure.

Good news, hang tough, it will continue to get better.

And FWIW I never believed you are as liberal as people think. You appear to be a conservative not thrilled with our President. To me it’s all good, a variety of views and opinions makes us great. I just pray that logic and common sense ultimately win out.

...and lastly...

Trump 2020!

Going to get the verdict on whether I can have my hip replaced or not. The bone specialist hip doc told me I absolutely had to lose weight so I've lost almost 110lbs. Then he said that my cardiologist would have to sign off on the operation as being safe (survivable) for me. I need it done my mobility is down to walking with a cane with pretty severe chronic pain.. My mental state is none to good, I've had a couple of serious bouts of depression and that shit is scary. All kinds of fucked up thoughts, can't see life like I used to. Scares me at times, I'm not suicidal but those thoughts have crept into my mind, as I am now, my life is over, nothing left. Right now I can take about twenty steps before I have to stop because of the pain. Doctors are scared to prescribe pain medicine, which is ok since I'm an addictive type. Pretty fucked up life, I sit in a chair about 90% of the time and can only sleep a couple of hours after missing days of sleep because of the pain. Sadness and despair is about all I have left, I'm not sure how much longer i can go on if I get bad news tomorrow. Please say a prayer for me, I need help.
There is no reason for somebody to have to live with debilitating pain even if you have a “addictive“ personality. If you don’t think you could handle the temptation have somebody close to you keep the medication and only give you the prescribed dose. Steven Tyler of Aerosmith was a hard core heroin junkie for years and when he had to have knee replacement done that’s what he did with his medication. I have very painful Peripheral Neuropathy that has no cure and gets worse as the years go on but without being sent to a Pain Management doctor, not a pill mill, I wouldn’t be able to do shit. All of this opioid deaths in the news does not get reported correctly. The overwhelming majority of the deaths are coming from tainted heroin with Feyntnal that’s coming across the Mexican border and being mixed with the Feyntnal coming from China by some idiot that probably can barely tie his shoes. I know why the MSM isn’t reporting the truth, they don’t want their future voters impeded coming across the border and the politions

Good Luck!! I've had 2 replaced, the bone joint pain goes away but the recovery and muscle pain take a while. Understand what the recovery is all about and the dislocation and infection risks. You'll most likely have to go a class and have a pre-op physical close to your surgery date.

My barber is 67. She had her hip replacement on a Friday, was home Friday night and back cutting hair on Tuesday.
Dead bone is a whole other can or worms.

Here are 2 things that help when I am in pain. Since I cannot take anything but a little aspirin (no NSAIDS) because I have heart disease, I have found that MCT oil and Turmeric (mixed with V8 juice) really gets rid of the pain for a lot of the day. Both are anti-inflammatory but they work for me. Hope you get help and feel better soon.
