Customer Question
I had a hip replacement...
I had a hip replacement surgery in 2011. Resulted in an infection and inability to walk after the surgery. After many hospital and doctors visits over the years since then I am so frustrated at not having a decent life. The reason for the hip replacement in the first place
was because of arthritis and a tear in the hip. I am having a massage next week to ease this I hope. Any advice please Thank you.......JUDY
