Thanks. I'm a bit anxious. Just showered with anti-bacterial soap and off to bed for my last sleep with my 58 year old hip joint. I have my fasting instructions, need to shower again mid morning and hospital admission is at 1.00 pm AEST.  In less than 24 hours I'll be a little bit less of me and probably not feeling very good.  I'm being told I won't regret it and I really hope that's the case having been in constant pain for a while now.

I hope your only problem out of it is making an alarming racket every time you go through airport security :) use the rest time to create a dish called Chicken Thightanium ;)

I made it.  Probably just under 3 hours I think. I've seen the xray and it looks a bit different to the ones I brought in with me.  The spinal block and other stuff kept me pain free but legless for a few hours but that has now worn off.  Now the physio, exercise and recovery begin.  Not too much pain yet but I believe day 2 is usually the worst.

Anyway, I'm ok. Thanks for your kind words of support. ;)

Hope you’re ok Livo and the new leg didn’t drop off? From being the life and soul of the forum you’ve gone a bit quiet mate.   

Me too of course, but I’m banned from cooking curries at the moment, until I get an acceptable curry shed built, so I have an excuse.

Curry shed, how about this grill cabin https://www.bidspotter.co.uk/en-gb/auction-catalogues/haddon-and-james/catalogue-id-ibhe12776/lot-ad1146ab-8439-4df1-afac-aa32010c9669?utm_source=bs-bespoke-auc&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=haddon-and-james&utm_term=20190421&utm_content=ibhe12776in

Yep, I'm still here and the hip is improving a lot. I can walk without the telltale hip limp now (most of the time).  I've been busy catching up on everything I didn't do in 6 weeks or so of being unable to do much at all. Consequently, and for other reasons, I simply haven't had time to put into cooking curry.  I can feel a spread coming up soon though. 

A neighbour recently put out on the side of the road a big bucket of fresh organic chokos from their vine. These things make a delicious curry.  I'll get to the shops soon to pick up some chickens and bone them out for a pre-cook.  I already have a few different base gravies in the freezer.
Lamb has been a bit pricey of late but I did pick up a reduced price boned shoulder yesterday so it's marked for curry.

Still banned from curry mate.  That's terrible news.  :o  Fortunately for me my wife loves the stuff. ;D

Just as a matter of interest, my wife had been having knee problems for a year or so - so went private to see specialist after usual NHS fob offs with arthritis comments.  Guy x rayed her knee - steroid injection which helped for 3 months - but comment was - new knee sooner or later due to wear and tear bone 0n bone pain - which she dreaded having only ever been laid up once - triple heart by-pass.

Our youngest daughter ( degree prescriber nurse) commented she'd had good reports from a gym fitness teacher who had a similar problem - but opted for private cell regeneration treatment - a German pioneered system - not widely available in UK - but possible.  Had the treatment and was back doing gym classes after 6 months.  Our daughter spoke to the co. - based in Stamford Lincs and we decided it sounded real enough to give it a go.  Cost was £875 for 7x 1 hour treatments to both knees simultaneously - necessitating an airbnb stay in Stamford for a week on top of the treatment cost.  The effects are gradual over a period of 3 to 10 weeks as the cells regenerate in the affected joints.

My wife noticed  after about a week that knee pain just lying in bed disappeared and gradually over the next 6 weeks movement was easier.  She returned for a follow up appointment after 6 weeks and movement measurements showed  a 50% improvement over her previous records.

The sytem is widely used in Germany and is finding increasing use here in UK with sportsmen, athletes, football clubs as well as private indivduals.  The treatment is not just restricted to knees - hips, wrists, necks ankles etc are all treated with a reportedly high level of success

Here is the UK cos website for anyone interested in pursuing this further - https://www.mbst-therapy.co.uk/ - with clinics in Stamford and Camberley

Passed on to two elderly lady friends (one of whom lives in Camberley); both have expressed considerable interest.

Must confess guys I was sceptical at first and read up on it - finding of course a quackery jibe from a UK surgeon as one negative - but then he would wouldn't he - affects his 'trade'.  A lot of positive reports from many people who have been treated - but note whilst the succcess rate is given as fairly high - not 100%.  For the relatively low cost involved - versus the alternative surgery option with pain / recovery time - and with knees restricted use - i.e you cannot kneel down again ! - well worth a shot.  Stamford clinic negotiating with football league teams apparently as part of their private health insurance scheme for players

Just learned there is a 3rd uk clinic for mbst at Potters Bar.  Son in law is trying the Camberleg one cor hip problem and tells his treatment will be at home (Sunbury on Thames) using a portable machine

Son in law just completed his home use of mbst machine and already feels less pain in hip when in bed

The effects are gradual over a period of 3 to 10 weeks as the cells regenerate in the affected joints.

It's good to hear about anyone getting better but can MBST therapy really lead to cell regeneration? One surgeon didn't think so and he complained to the Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) about another company offering MBST,. The judgment was as follows. The ASA "told Cell Regeneration Ltd to avoid making claims that MBST could treat or cure conditions in the absence of suitable evidence and to not falsely claim that the treatment could cure disease",

For further information, see here:

I saw a programme last week on a japanese Surgeon who has been working with stem cell technology for some time and he appears to be very successful using DNA from the patients spine to inject into the knee to repair cartilage.


In my opinion the Medical Profession do not communicate as well  as say the aircraft industry ie mistakes, progress, and innovation.

Noel Fitzpatrick (supervet) said he wishes Surgeons would come and talk to him as he feels they could learn from the stuff he is doing and vice versa.

Historically pioneering medical practitioners has often been snubbed and held back by Dinasoars not wishing to move on.

That sounds more likely to repair cartilage than MBST. Was it a TV programme? If so, what was it called and on which channel?

My wifes follow up meeting at mbst stamford Lincs showed a 50% improvement in knee joint flexing distance.  Pain has gone - particularly in bed and walking.  She no longer complains about her knee at all.  I would consider the experience has been a positive one & beneficial - especially when you consider what is involved with the alternative of knee surgery, pain, limitations of use & longevity of the actual new knee as a part.  Meetin s-in- law next weekend - will be interested in his experience comments
