Going into surgery tomorrow

Going into surgery tomorrow. Life has been miserable for three years, had all the shots. Bone is worn out, little broken and has to go.

Here is hoping for improvement. Might need a left knee also.

Too young to be this old, only 73 this coming May.

My surgeon is Jonathan Sembrano, MD (see Doctors and specialists in the USA, Minnesota)

Old terrible pain is gone. Healing is slow. Had four inch outer cut that was glued, I came unglued. Now only about one inch to close.

Some pain, but I walk and move around ok.

Best wishes to all. Bill

Note from Jon Miles:

I emailed more than a year after this story was posted, to ask for an update, as the long-term outcome of treatment is of great interest. In this case I did not get a reply.
