Customer Question
Hello, male, age 56. 5...
Hello, male, age 56. 5 foot 9, 230 pounds. Getting ready for hip resurfacing on July 8. Have an arthritic rt hip (bone on bone) and arthritic right knee (sports injury when I was 20). Knee has been relatively stable so decision has been to fix highly painful right hip first.
Recently have developed calf pain in right calf muscle which can be excruciating when I walk. It is painful when the right foot goes down and pushes off. Dull ache otherwise. No traumatic injury. Could this be due to the arthritis in hip and knee? Will the hip resurfacing offer some relief or is this a new problem that may be permanent? Suggestions for interim treatment?

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
