AI had to choose an option and do not know what that choice means down the line for my stage 4 hip xray issues??? I feel so uncertain as to what I will be doing after my choice and what outcome to expect for an 85 year old very healthy woman???I hope together a second opinion by a doctor that will explain the above consequences of my choice.

He wasn’t interested in anything I had to say and wouldn’t let me talk. He decided that, due to my age and past issues, that what I was experiencing was normal and I should find a way to deal with it. He was recommended to me and I am sure he is a good surgeon. He came in complaining that my case was very complicated he was not prepared to evaluate without more information. I felt like he was only interested in straight forward problems that he could just do surgery and be done.
