Wed, 13 Nov 2013 18:29:51 +0000http://techwhisperer.biz/?p=1233#comment-3297It definitely warrants a second opinion as well as your SIL speaking with the orthopedist. It’s very good to have someone close who can & will do this who also has in-depth health care knowledge. Without knowing all else it does seem awfully young to avoid surgery due to your mothers age. I’ve just been hearing a report via Here & Now on NPR, about where to get the best surgical procedures, for the best outcomes & incidentally also with cost effectiveness info.
Good luck all!

My Mom had her hip replaced last year (and she is the same age as your Mom) and did lots of physical therapy after (because she is a beast!) and is actually more mobile that before.

This type of surgery will have a long difficult recovery period so it is not something to do lightly. So the orthopedist may not be wrong. But at the end of the day there may be no real right or wrong. It is a personal choice. The fortunate thing is that there are lots of orthopedists and if the choice is that the surgery is best it will not be difficult to find a good one who is willing to do it.

Wed, 16 Oct 2013 18:04:03 +0000http://techwhisperer.biz/?p=1202#comment-3294I had a similar experience with a doctor a couple of years ago. I went in asking for suggestions of ways to lose weight. Her only suggestion (which she repeated at least four time) was that if I ate healthy, I would lose weight. I tried to explain that I thought I was eating healthy foods, but clearly I needed additional help. She was totally unwilling to listen, and only wanted to repeat the same thing over and over. I immediately went and found a new doctor.

I hope you were able to carry out some of your own work while David was “Rabbiing”! Carol
P.S. I am supposing your vista to the east will include TG & the niecelettes, as well as dear old Dad.

Fri, 20 Sep 2013 20:11:37 +0000http://techwhisperer.biz/?p=1161#comment-3143Thank you for sharing your struggles. I totally feel you – in the other direction (me being east, my family being west). And no matter how much contact I have, I never am clear whether I really know how my mother is doing, since she can't talk (since her stroke last December). Heartfelt blessings to you as you wend your way through this time of life.
