    Eeek! Big money. I often flaunt the Canadian system of socialized medicine where such operations are free. However, hip replacement requests have totally overwhelmed our system and waiting time is 6-12 months. Our doctors say that is comparable to other nations – but I bet it’s much shorter in the US. We do fracture replacements within 48 hours but wear and tear replacements take a long time – sometimes years.

    Naw, this is the bugaboo operation of our system.

    As an unrelated aside, Kerbey, I did a guest post over at Cordelia’s Mom’s If you have time to drop by, I would be honored. Thank you. https://cordeliasmomstill.com/2016/06/27/quinn-plays-god-guest-post-by-paul-curran/comment-page-1/#comment-17711

    That’s a lot of money. Why do people say the Human body is only worth a buck if one part costs 49 K?
