I guess it just depends on the person. Different people have different experiences. I hope I'll be ok in NC.

Boy, he is lucky. I was sent to a specialist. He was the professor in the arthritis department at the University Hospital in Tucson. I have had three back surgeries for injuries received at work. I have arthritis in my back and in my hands. This professor told me that the miracle drug, aspirin, is the only medication that he approves of. He feels that the rest have too many side effects. He also suggests fish oil capsules. I have taken the fish oil for years. I take the aspirin when it flares up. I have lived here, in the heat, for 20 years. I wish the heat had some benefit for me.

I am purchasing property on Toledo Bend Lake on the border of SW Louisiana and East Texas. You can get cheap property here and lots of golf, fishing, etc. Only low hills to contend with. Good medical care not too distant. A refuge from Hurricanes on the coast. And the temperature is mild all year. It is an undiscovered retirement haven. Come and see for yourself. Fly into Shreveport--a small airport and easy to get around. Buzz down to the Lake--only 65 miles on a good road. If you do not like Toledo Bend, another big lake--Sam Rayburn--is nearby. Lake is low now, but rains are returning. Good land deals. Rock bottom property taxes. A loooong ways from New Orleans and none of the problems they have there. This is really more Texas than Louisiana. Of course, you could move to the Texas side.

Wow I guess he was lucky. He had 2 plastic hips and he couldn't move in NY and was on that horrible metrol. He was fine here in AZ.

Also, last winter my hip replacement didn't really cause me much pain, but with the coming of this winter, I'm starting to notice that I have to use an ice pack on the hip area more and take Motrin a little more for some pain.
Do you have the same problem??
We are seriously considering moving to a warmer climate like Fl or NC due to our "winter pains" we get now.
What do you think?
My Father has had tons of brokens bones because he is a motorcycle racer. He lives in the desert in Ca and he has said he will never live elsewhere thats colder because of the pain he gets when it is cold.

Since my last post, I have had more back surgeries. I am recuperating from my seventh spinal surgery. After the first two the rest have all been done with metal fixtures implanted. NOW I do suffer when the weather is bad. I can feel the change at least one day before bad weather arrives. Apparently the last operation changed things. I now believe the people who say that the weather affects them, I didn't until this last operation.
