Although my dog Max had a similar problem, no, I am not the canine pictured right. I am in the midst of scheduling pre-op appointments for hip replacement surgery for Dianne. It looks as if I will have the surgery in about two weeks. Doc M. says I have exhausted all conservative efforts to deal with the pain, and I agree. I have reached the point where pain at night is unbearable.
Much to do. Will visit more and write again later this week.
