Sorry Bill , joking aside , I have had both of my hips replaced ; the first in England 12 years ago and the other here in France at Guingamp 7 years ago . And it’s magic . , and no problems, no pain . Of course anyone having an operation is apprehensive, so talking about it is a good thing .
You are not alone Bill…..just a matter of time before I need a knee replacement myself due to osteoarthritis compounded with the fact I have osteoporosis. Needles are the least of your worry….honestly!!!
Och Gerry you have a braw pair o’ pins!!!
