My father had hip replacement surgery. He could not sleep at night, so much pain prior to the surgery. Unfortunately he developed blood clots in his leg. He had to be admitted to the ER. He's on blood thinner meds for the rest of his life and has to watch his intake of green veggies (which helps blood clot).



This was most likely caused by his activity restrictions following surgery or his own medical condition (more coagulation properties in his blood) that caused the blood clots, not the surgery itself.

Early ambulation and wearing sequential compression stockings is so important for surgery recovery.

Your dad is lucky the blood clots didn't cause a stroke... he is also lucky that this problem was discovered accidentally during the surgical experience... undetected and untreated, he could have suffered a serious stroke or heart attack.

geek
Hope he continues to do well.

It isn't funny, at all. Do you know how they do a hip replacement? The "ball" part of the ball and socket joint (the upper part of the femur) is cut off and a prosthesis is either pounded or cemented into the bone.

You've seen how thin Prince's legs are. How big do you think his femur is?

This is what they'd be pounding into his leg. Are we having fun yet?




Prince's stature is similar to a petite woman... 5'2" and a thin frame. Look at all of his girlfriends over the years,... they were of similar build as Prince. Does Manuella, Mayte, Vanity, or any others look extraordinarily small or frail looking for a woman? No, there are THOUSANDS of women that are of similar build.

I assure you,... there are hardware for hip replacements that will fit even them... and yes, that means Prince also.

He may get hardware that is usually used on women but there is something that will fit.

I think he is just avoiding it due to fear or his own belief system of wanting to be natural, nothing foreign in his body.



I agree with you that that is likely part of it, but I also think the idea of putting himself into such a vulnerable circumstance as surgery and hospitalization isn't something that Prince can concede to very easily. Most people are disturbed by placing themselves completely into the care of others and into a hospital setting, but Prince's need for control is pretty well-established...being an anesthetized hospital patient and dependent upon others for many personal needs, even if it's only for a brief few days, must be a hard thing for Prince to handle.

Copy that, and I hope your friend and Mom R happily mobile, 4 sure!

I hear mostly that it's a routine operation, but others have pointed out the risks, possible complications, etc.

There may also be some other complication(s) we know nothing about.

So if any of this is true, it must be a very difficult decision 4 PRINCE 2 make.

It must be a tough decision 4 ANYONE 2 make.

If he isn't 100% sure that he'll be as mobile as he is now, he is going 2 hesitate.

I'm not buying the rumour still, but I do believe he could have some problem.

4 everyone 2 assume the pain killer part of the gossip is true, is a bit unfounded, seeing as it came from Roger Freidman's mystery source.

Gosh, I have to remember that most people here have not been exposed to hip replacement etc.

I am a nurse, have recovered patients following surgery for hip and knee replacement. It is painful post op, but there are effective pain medications for that. The recovery will take some work, but prince is in my opinion very good physical shape and will have the stamina to do the exercises needed to rehabilitate.

Beleive me, the surgery is very common place, almost done as an outpatient. Patients are DISCHARGED HOME in less than 3 days WALKING. Maybe with an aid (cane or walker) but they are walking and will be able to walk unaided in a few weeks.

I have had patients who say after the initial recovery (5 - 7 days) their pain level was LESS with the replacement than before.

Can you imagine the damage being done to the tendons and nerves in that joint with ragged bone on top of ragged bone with no cushion. just DEEP bone pain?

Prince get the surgery already!



My mom worked for orthopedic doctors for many, many years. Your post is right on.

my only opinion/wish/whatever in this whole deal is this:

PRINCE, HANDLE YOUR BUSINESS.

it's obvious something is wrong. there have been some TV appearances and candid photos of late where he just doesn't look good. in the few print interviews prince gave prior to the new album, there were very specific comments about his limp. his comments didn't seem all there for the new yorker interview, which makes me wonder if he was wacked out on painkillers when he sat down with them. he's not touring his new album or doing any special "residencies" like he did with his last albums. he's not even performing all that much.

this much is obvious: something in the milk ain't clean. disbelief

and ya know what? i don't care what the deal is. i don't care if his religion is keeping him from taking care of his hip problem, or if it's a fear of doctors or if it's a pride thing and he doesn't want to acknowledge his own mortality, or...whatEVER. i don't care about the "whys" because it's not my business.

JUST HANDLE IT, PRINCE.

If I had a wish for him right now, it would be that he'd take at least a year to work it all out for himself. Wipe out the entire purple paisley gravy train and give the hangers-on and yes wo/men their walking papers, hire a couple of people to take care of the house and to cook the meals, figure out a plan to fix that damn hip once and for all, and spend lots and lots of TIME resting and relaxing, reading books and eating healthy and recharging every last battery until he's bored out of his big ol' skull and ready to PROPERLY take over the world again.

JUST DO IT AND GET IT OVER WITH.

The world doesn't need to know the details. He just needs to fix the problems before something really tragic happens. I don't want to see the man collapsing on stage in the middle of a concert, and I don't want to see footage of Prince getting loaded into an ambulance because he wiped out on the street or in an airport. Nobody wants to see that.

Prince has too brilliant and unique a mind to keep it imprisoned in a body that's always in pain and/or drugged up. He really needs to work it out. That's the only thing that matters.



I'M DOWN WITH THIS as long as he gives me a few vault cds 2 hold me over while he is resting!

Luv, I've been on blood thinners (coumadin) since I was 17 due to clots (multiple deep vein thrombosis and multiple pulmonary embolisms). I was just in the hospital last week because my pt-inr was too high (10.9 - which if I'd bumped into something and got a bruise, I would have bled to death because they wouldn't have been able to stop the bleeding). Anyway, he needs to watch more than just leafy green veggies. Sharp cheddar cheese has vitamin k, cranberries can actually interfer in the way coumadin is processed in the system, of course green teas, also any hand lotions that might contain vitamin k (it can get into the system through the skin), multi-vitamins, there are a lot of foods and other items. He needs to watch all over the counter medications. There are just too many things to list. Also make sure he routinely gets his inr checked because coumadin/warfarin is very unstable in a lot of ways and can actually be a killer in itself. It's great at preventing clots, but if the inr jumps too high it can cause a fatal bleed. Not a fun medication to be on.

I totally agree, aren't pain killers addictive? It is more harm to the body than good.

Hope Prince is doing fine. Wish him the best. I don't know if he truly has a hip problem. However, Prince has the right to handle his health issues in anyway he sees fit.

There is no reason to call someone a moron or calling someone's beliefs crap.
There are many doctors and scientists who have religious beliefs, so people are now going to call them dummies and morons because they have religious beliefs?
People don't know the circumstances but they want to insult someone who does not share their views.



Thanks for this post. All I have to say, is that I hope Prince makes whatever decision is in his best interests. It is really none of anyone's business but his. Those people who use the harshest terms and demand apologies are the biggest guardians of their own privacy and would never want their health issues discussed in this manner. I guess it is hard to see that when one is sitting on such a high horse.

My mom had knee replacement surgery last year at the NYU Hospital for Joint Diseases. She is one of the few people who now suffers from the "almost never happens" complication of a dropped foot. They damaged a nerve during the oh so routine surgery and now my mom's foot has lost the ability to move properly. These surgeries are not as uncomplicated as they would like us to believe, but if the alternative is to be crippled or in severe pain, the surgeries must be considered.

DISAGREE...we have no evidence anything is wrong and if he really was in pain I doubt he would be facing the media in events which he voluntarily attended (such as Patti Labelle's award). He seems fine to me and he has always had a distinctive swagger walk. He likes to work and keep busy and if you are in pain being distracted is probably a good thing.
He has just come out with his best album since Emancipation in my opinion so no need to reassess things and hide away and come back, HE'S ALREADY HERE LIVE AND KICKING!
Even if something is wrong I think its a bit outspoken of a moderator to voice such opinions. Surely moderators are here to moderate and not generate controvesial comments?
I'm not saying don't be a mod, but if you are a mod you have to be more impartial. I remember there was once a nightmare mod called Handclapsfingersnaps who really used to stoke the fires so Im glad shes not a mod anymore.

I think that we should not try and second guess this subject - its really none of our business, but think on this none of know his full medical history nor should be want to know thats his personal business, but there could be many reasons why he is not currently undergoing a double hip replacement. Anyway I am sure that Prince as an incredibly intelligent man is aware of all the screnarios and its his and his alone decision to make on how he deals with this. I think we should all just wish him well on carrying on doing what he wants to do, pain free ideally but however he wants to carry on doing what he wants to do and we should be grateful cos it seems he is happy carrying on making wonderful music !!! Go P - positivity and heaven to you x

Rumor or not, at his age unless he really needs the money, any one of us would have taken a good long extended vacation from the limelight.

He seems fine to me and he has always had a distinctive swagger walk. He likes to work and keep busy and if you are in pain being distracted is probably a good thing.
He has just come out with his best album since Emancipation in my opinion so no need to reassess things and hide away and come back, HE'S ALREADY HERE LIVE AND KICKING!
Even if something is wrong I think its a bit outspoken of a moderator to voice such opinions. Surely moderators are here to moderate and not generate controvesial comments?
I'm not saying don't be a mod, but if you are a mod you have to be more impartial. I remember there was once a nightmare mod called Handclapsfingersnaps who really used to stoke the fires so Im glad shes not a mod anymore.


i am a mod and i am also a part of this online fan community, and i'm also a fan and a person with eyes, ears and an opinion.

i stand by what i posted because i believe what i wrote, and i meant it in a concerned, genuine, and constructive way.

you also have to keep in mind that he has a very small frame, almost child like. surgery could have ramifications because of his stature/build alone and throw in his age on top of it.


"almost childlike" ??? good lord. He's small but not that small! geesh people.
"not a fan" falloff yeah...ok

It isn't funny, at all. Do you know how they do a hip replacement? The "ball" part of the ball and socket joint (the upper part of the femur) is cut off and a prosthesis is either pounded or cemented into the bone.

You've seen how thin Prince's legs are. How big do you think his femur is?

This is what they'd be pounding into his leg. Are we having fun yet?




Prince's stature is similar to a petite woman... 5'2" and a thin frame. Look at all of his girlfriends over the years,... they were of similar build as Prince. Does Manuella, Mayte, Vanity, or any others look extraordinarily small or frail looking for a woman? No, there are THOUSANDS of women that are of similar build.

I assure you,... there are hardware for hip replacements that will fit even them... and yes, that means Prince also.

He may get hardware that is usually used on women but there is something that will fit.

I think he is just avoiding it due to fear or his own belief system of wanting to be natural, nothing foreign in his body.

phew! Thank God for you! smile
"not a fan" falloff yeah...ok

my only opinion/wish/whatever in this whole deal is this:

PRINCE, HANDLE YOUR BUSINESS.

it's obvious something is wrong. there have been some TV appearances and candid photos of late where he just doesn't look good. in the few print interviews prince gave prior to the new album, there were very specific comments about his limp. his comments didn't seem all there for the new yorker interview, which makes me wonder if he was wacked out on painkillers when he sat down with them. he's not touring his new album or doing any special "residencies" like he did with his last albums. he's not even performing all that much.

this much is obvious: something in the milk ain't clean. disbelief

and ya know what? i don't care what the deal is. i don't care if his religion is keeping him from taking care of his hip problem, or if it's a fear of doctors or if it's a pride thing and he doesn't want to acknowledge his own mortality, or...whatEVER. i don't care about the "whys" because it's not my business.

JUST HANDLE IT, PRINCE.

If I had a wish for him right now, it would be that he'd take at least a year to work it all out for himself. Wipe out the entire purple paisley gravy train and give the hangers-on and yes wo/men their walking papers, hire a couple of people to take care of the house and to cook the meals, figure out a plan to fix that damn hip once and for all, and spend lots and lots of TIME resting and relaxing, reading books and eating healthy and recharging every last battery until he's bored out of his big ol' skull and ready to PROPERLY take over the world again.

JUST DO IT AND GET IT OVER WITH.

The world doesn't need to know the details. He just needs to fix the problems before something really tragic happens. I don't want to see the man collapsing on stage in the middle of a concert, and I don't want to see footage of Prince getting loaded into an ambulance because he wiped out on the street or in an airport. Nobody wants to see that.

Prince has too brilliant and unique a mind to keep it imprisoned in a body that's always in pain and/or drugged up. He really needs to work it out. That's the only thing that matters.


clapping clapping

I hope Prince will read this and do it. We need Prince healthy again.

This rumor could very well be true. Wendy and Lisa talked about it during their live interview online yesterday, and said that they hoped Prince would get better. I wish he would too, especially if he's in that much pain. But I can kind of understand if he doesn't want to have the surgery due to his religious beliefs (even though I don't necessarily agree with it).
RIP, Prince. A legend has left us, and you will be forever missed. cry
