I saw the surgeon and listened to all his thoughts, advise and etc. He said, for 69 and healthy and arthritis , you can wait or if you want more mobility, hip replacement. It is surgery with dangers and you can continue as you are til you are ready. Replacements have been since 1973. And I was satisfied to listen
The he said, at your last visit with my associate, you mentioned covid test, vaccine. Yes, a PCR is mandated for surgery. Vaccine is highly recommended.
So, he questioned me about the vaccine. I said, it is not a vaccine. Then he questioned me about my polio shot. I was a kid and had no choice, and even the polio shots had aborted fetal cells. Then he used the word conspiracy. I said, this is no conspiracy, it is truth, it is not a vaccine. Because you are an employee to Banner health, then you are also expected to sell the product, not for me. Then he said, his father was a farmer and as a surgeon he has not knowledge of farming, what do I know medical. I replied, you speak to not only me but my husband, we are medical and friends in pharmacy and nurses. We know enough to say no, and we left.
I thank the Trinity and Mary for this day.
