Injecting "rooster comb" into a joint is done for a very different reason than than repairing/strengthening the bones of the joint. Just sayin'.

Hi. I was just researching online about hip pin replacement surgery, and found out that it's very complicated. My husband has pins, and is having a lot of pain walking, but after I read to him about the possibilities and complications of pin removal from the following website, he said he's not having it done. But I don't know. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1963692/
(Sounds pretty bad...)
The thing that bothers me is that there are different kinds of screws, and I suppose cement being sold to doctors. There is no uniform code as to what is better from what I have read so far. Pretty bad, imho. And the surgeon that did his hip pinning does not go into detail, as I notice most, if not all, doctors, do the same thing today, as if we're dummies and we should just accept their say-so.
But anyway, the above link is interesting, if nothing else. Maybe I'll take it to the surgeon next time we speak with him and wait for him to throw me out of his office.

The guy (doctor) who told me about the rooster comb treatment for my knee said it would give me about 6 months. Big deal. He said I needed knee replacement. As I was reading more about these things, one woman who worked at a hospital told me that when they first started knee replacements there was a lot of mess-ups. And even know I speak to some who did well, and some who did not do well.
I finally did easy aerobic exercise at a rehab pool with a group where I live last week, so glad I did and I felt much, much better after the exercise. I look forward to doing the exercise again and hope the aftermath continues.
