Smile C F and due for hip replacement - anyone?

Hiya, 56 years old, had CFS for about 14 years, currently going through relapse. I have feeling that a recent anaesethetic may have exacerbated symptons, does anyone have knowledge of this at all?
Also, as i am due to have a hip replacement next year, I am really concerned about the type of joint they will be considering. Having always had problem with everything metal - ear rings / watches etc, I wonder if I should ask about other materials?
Dont think my surgeon has much knowledge of CFS so doubt he would be number one for advice!
thx

Hi,
People with CFS will have problems with bones and hips as they age because of the large amount of time they spend lying down in bed. Bones retain their strength with exercise, which CFS people dont do much of.
What will make this worse is if they drink fluoridated water. The fluoride displaces a natural bone mineral called boron.
If you do an internet search for "bones" and "boron", you will find further information.
There is plenty of advice about bones and calcium from medical authorities, but very little on the other minerals that help strengthen our bones.
Get some boron tablets from a health food shop, or online, and take 2 X 3 mgs with meals, for a couple of weeks.
You should feel a lot less hip pain.

Regards

It is possible to do an allergy test for the metals before they are implanted in you. Talk to an allergist about that.

The rehab after hip replacement is demanding, just try to build up as much muscle as you can beforehand.
