    What's with you Geezers being hooked on joints?

    I only indulged once in my life -- I swear.

    Some of us "worked" hard for our money! Joints took the most punishment!

    My doctors wouldn't let me have a hip replacement until it totally collapsed, stating that I was too young. While I do think that younger folks are trending toward earlier replacements, I also wonder if people aren't getting arthritis at a much earlier age, too. I think this article could be a little flawed in that the author only factored in weight problems, and found that obesity is insufficient to statistically support the increase in joint replacements. A sedentary lifestyle (which has occurred more and more frequently in the last 50 years) will lead the population to have less bone density overall.

    Had a knee scope done, the top of my leg bone looks like the surface of the moon. After watching a few friends I think I'll hold off as long as I can.

    Devi--I have a shoulder that is completely worn out. They keep telling me i'm a replacement candidate but i'm too young. While i like the idea of being told i'm too young for something, the arthritis can be unbearable at times. I'm told the cartilidge is 90% gone. I guess i have to wait until my arm becomes useless. Thank goodness its my offhand shoulder.

    My left hip replacement is 35 years and in great shape. My right hip replacement is 25 years and going strong. If the doc says you have to wait and endure the pain, find a new doc.
