WHEN SOMEONE SUDDENLY TELLS YOU THAT THE PAIN ISN'T GOING TO GO AWAY W/O SURGERY, IT IS VERY FRIGHTENING TO SAY THE LEAST. BOTH MY HIPS HAD TO BE DONE WITHIN 60 DAYS. CORE DECOMPRESSIONS HAD NO AFFECT ON THE AVN. I WAS DISAPPOINTED TO BEGIN WITH BUT WAS RELIEVED IN A FEW DAYS THAT ALL THAT AWFUL PAIN WAS GONE. YES, YOU CAN DRIVE A 5 SPEED (THAT IS IF YOU EVER COULD). I WALKED UP LARGE FLIGHTS OF STAIRS WITH LITTLE PAIN. MUSCLES AND TENDONS HAVE TO REPAIR THEMSELVES SOMEWHAT; i CAN SQUAT, PAINT CARS LIKE I USE TO . I WATCH WEIGHT THAT I LIFT . JUST TURNED 50 AND WOULD HAVE IT DONE AGAIN IF NECESSARY. THERE ARE A LOT OF GOOD DOCTORS OUT THERE THAT CAN HELP YOU. MOST OF THEM WILL TELL YOU THAT WHEN YOU CAN'T GET A GOOD NIGHT'S SLEEP FROM THE PAIN, IT'S ABOUT TIME TO DO SOMETHING. MY FIRST ONE DID SO WELL I WANTED TO DO THE OTHER THE NEXT WEEK, BUT HAD TO WAIT. HANG ON!!! mail me if you want to talk. I'm in my office some and sometims it .helps. p.s. always be good to the nurses, the doctors are great, but the nurses take care of that cut butt!!! Later Joe
