Hi Everyone,  im new to this forum, thought i would give a short version of my story. Im hoping for some feedback.

Im 59 years old and had DDD and very back back disc issue with L4 and L5. Very painful. Im Diabetic and in 2014 had a THR, infection set in, entire prothesis had to be removed for 9 months and had revision done in 2015. No infection. But it did not stop there. I have slight erosion and prothesis is about 4cm loose. Ortho surgeon gave me to see how i am in Dec and does not want to open me up again. Between surgery, cleanings, ive had 6 operations on this leg. Walking is awful. I use a walker. Ive never been able to get away from it to walk on my own. Im grateful for at least being mobile. All of this was done at a very good university hospital and excellent surgeon. Im so confused with what is going to happen with me. I also have Neuropathy in both legs with inflammation. I used to be so active and tbe past three years have been discovering a new chapter in my life. Very difficult. Has anyone else gone thru something similar?
