Problem: Trouble bending and moving
Result: Walking care free again
After 2 years of instability, I realized something was happening with my body when I couldn’t bend at my waist on my right side and my left leg was bending inward and touching my other leg.
I put off the problem to take care of my husband until he passed away in late 2015. At 78 years old, I did not want to put a burden on my children, so I got in touch with Ronald W. Hillock, M.D.. After taking an MRI and x-rays, the results showed I needed a total right hip replacement. I had the surgery performed on July 6, 2016 and the operation was a success and was able to bend again with determination and therapy.
After 6 months my leg was in bad shape and had an MRI and x-rays done and showed I needed a total left knee replacement.. I had the surgery performed on January 9, 2017 and was pleased with the outcome.
After 2 weeks of surgery, I was able to put aside my cane and walker and pursued therapy. I am happy to say thank you to Dr. Hillock and Deanna Rechtzigel, APRN and I highly recommend them to my friends and family and am happy to look in the mirror again.
Thank you, Adeline Coppola
