That's good information.
I had the operation in one eye, and did it without anesthesia. They totally numb the and the anesthesia is only to keep you relaxed during the procedure. I just hate recovering from anesthesia and feel like this was one of my good decisions.
The cataract surgery was a brilliant success btw.
On April 19, I am finally going to get my left hip replaced. I am excited by the prospect, but nervous at the same time. I have the right Dr for it. He has the fewest complications in NYS and it is basically an outpatient procedure now.
Background: I have a genetic disorder in the ball joints where the growth plate between the ball and the bone was slipping. They put 3 spikes in each hip in 82 and 85. Since then arthritis and stuff and I have had bad hips all my life.
My dad had his hips done and became a derelict ship in the living room. He never did get back to an active lifestyle. My brother had his hips replaced in 2005 and died from sepsis a year later when one became infected.
So, I have put it off as long as possible and now my quality of life is bad enough I would prefer to take the risk.
This IS NOT a sympathy post, just a thing I am doing as I get older.
it is basically an outpatient procedure now.
