My New Hip

The orthopedist gave me a photo of my hip.  Don't you love the zipper.  it's a shortcut to reach in and fix anything that goes wrong.


(it is my jeans they don't have you strip off.)   My femur had a fracture as I have horrible bones. So they gave me a metal plate and wire wrapped it.

He gave me some details of the surgery but it gives me the creeps to hear about all that activity going on in my body.  I am just happy with the results.  No pain.

  1. Holy cow woman! That is the coolest thing I've ever seen! check out that huge screw going into your pelvic bone. I bet you set off airport security. Best of all... no more pain! Yippeee!

  2. That really is a pretty neat view. Are you recuperating well? My doc told me I was low in vit D so I have to take supplements now to keep from having bone loss. How's your D?

    Thanks for dropping by my blog - your comment about Zumba had me laughing and I'm still giggling now! Very very funny.

    I thought I was already following your blog but I'm not. I am now!
