due to leg perthese and a butcher of a doctor when he was 8 my husband david needs hip replacement at 38. 6'7 250 lbs. one leg is 3 inches shorter and the limp his entire life has left him with allll types of problems. he's gotten around, skiing, football, tennis, and been very active his entire life. the pain is getting worse and stopping him in his tracks periodically. his sister had double hip replacements and thinks it's best he do it now. i think so too. he gets depressed periodically and in a funk thru out our entire 15 yr marriage. i think this will help him mentally as well as physically and better quality of life. he wants it but he doesn't. he said he'd do it for me if i want him to. (of course i want him to want to for himself) but at this point i don't care what the reason i just want him to do it. he COULD wait but it'll just get worse and his limitations will increase. i've read all u guys testimonials about wishing u'd done it sooner. i printed them and read them to him last night. can i get ur honest opinions for his specific case so that i may print out encouraging or discouraging words for this freaky week coming up. i'm scared and so is he. tell me it's going to be alright. i pray for all of u and if u r married please hug and kiss ur spouse and thank them for supporting and loving u unconditionally. they as well as u r very special ppl! keep fingers crossed for me that he goes thru with this. prayers r appreciated. cat
