Advised a major surgery

Yesterday I had written about the diagnosis for my bone pain in the hip area. I went to the orthopaedic doctor and he has given me three options:
  • Grin and bear the pain until I can
  • Undergo a major surgery involving four days of hospitalisation, four weeks of rest and six months for complete recovery
  • 'Try' an injection that may or may not work, has to be injected in the Operation Theatre, and if it works, can give me relief for a couple of years
Nice!

Mysteriously, the pain has reduced almost instantaneously! :-)

On a serious note, I am planning to see my nephrologist this evening to get his thoughts on this. I really don't want to go through a major surgery at this point. For dialysis during the four days of vacation in the hospital, I would need to be taken on a stretcher in an ambulance to a dialysis centre!

My initial thoughts: bear the pain until I have absolutely no other option. Then go for the big surgery so that it is a 100% solution.

I might change my mind of course. After all, I am about as indecisive a Libran as you will ever find.

Hello, I'm Kamal from Hyderabad, India. I have been on dialysis for the last 13 years, six of them on PD, the rest on hemo. I have been on daily nocturnal home hemodialysis for the last four and half years. I can do pretty much everything myself. I love to travel and do short weekend trips or longer trips to places which have dialysis centers. Goa in India is a personal favorite. It is a great holiday destination and has two very good dialysis centers.
