Good for you Gayle on your new job! The hip and knee surgeries most definitely need a little work to get them on a more timely schedule. My MRI went to the surgeon on October 26, 2010 and I have not yet even had my consultation! I flew to Vancouver, had private surgery done in February 2011. Just want to see how long it actually takes for an appointment. It has ONLY been 17 months so far.
Now with the arthritis that has set in (?? could it possibly be due somewhat to the lengthy wait??) I have just been informed that I need a knee replacement. And that specialist told me that he wants me to wait 2 years because of my age. I'm more likely to believe that that will be how long it might take to get in anyway! If the orthodic does not work, I'm going to request surgery much sooner. We'll see! I'm tired of not even being able to get down on my knees anymore!
