I used to be a hip degenerate; now I have a degenerate hip. It’s the disease that’s named after me, and I get an MRI Tuesday.

Sorry to hear it! I've had Arthuritis in my left foot for a couple of years now, and while it comes and goes, when it comes I can barely walk. Hip must be miserable.

Here's the silver lining for your hearing difficulties: MRIs are noisy.

FWIW, that's still my favorite optical illusion ever. ^_^ Even when you know what's going on, the illusion holds strong!

On the positive side, hip replacements are grand! And better now than they have ever been. The surgeons remove everything that hurts, so you wake up almost pain free, and you're back on your feet in a few days.

I am a bad fan. I earnestly searched for your last name, having failed to spot the pun.

I'm sorry your hip is acting up and hope medical science will be able to do something effective and not too annoying.

I think it's his first name wherein lies the pun.

Yes, I know that now; but I didn't when I searched on the last name.

Less hippie, more HIPAA? =:/

Hope it goes well. I've not yet had an MRI, although there may well be one in my near future. Not sure how well I'll deal with the claustrophobic setting, though I did manage with the close-fitting fiberglass mask of one fursuit I tried once upon a time. (Difficult to convey well, but the hard walls made the sound of breathing very obvious, which, for some reason, didn't help)
