Results from the consult her by a team of orthos , show need for second surgery on my hip .
The femoral portion has Loosened up , generating extra bone growth , pain and instability
The femoral portion of the implant was not long enough( a judgement call andnot that uncommon ) thus it had an angle within the femoral capsule that was driving the problem and causing serious pain .
Will undergo additional battery of tests here tomoorrow , return home for more tests and returm to Saratoga in 2 weeks with final results and further analysis . Surgery not scheduled yet but may be in Feb /march .
Given the recovery period i would be over 75 yo so it is most likely i am done . I am philosophical on this .,thankful for the run, its been great .
But right now with The nasty pain and on a walker again THIS has to be done.

It has been a tough week , Last nite Our Maid of Honor died unexpectedly . She had been ill with low body temp for two years but was never diagnosed with any specific ailment that we are aware of. We had seen her at our 50th and spoke with her in the fall.
Apparently She went to the hospital in her central ny hometown and was gone in a matter of a couple of days. Keep your friends close , this is a short trip for some .😿
