Joint Replacement Success Story

For Mt. Olive resident Linda Fuller, the commitment to have two total hip replacements, six weeks apart, was a big decision, but one that she doesn't regret for a moment.

Around age 45, Linda was diagnosed with moderate to severe arthritis and she had bone spurs in both hips. She had progressively been having difficulty with movements that had once been commonplace and easy for her.

"I had trouble getting up and down in my garden, I couldn't get my leg over my bike, I had not crossed my legs in three or four years, I couldn't walk fast, and I was losing side to side movement-it was becoming difficult to do all the things that I used to love to do," said Fuller.

"It crept up on me," she explained. "Until you really stop to think about it, you don't realize what's missing. I finally asked myself 'where do I want to be in 10 or 20 years?'

New Pulmonary Screening Program Available

We all know that careful monitoring and early inter vention are two keys to good health. If you agree with that philosophy, are over age 55 and have a history of heavy smoking, you may want to consider a Pulmonary Screening.

A Pulmonary Screening is a low dose cat (C/T) scan of the lung. Covered by most insurances, this screening is Medicare approved and is used to monitor and/or diagnose cancer, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), emphysema and other pulmonary conditions, with the goal of identifying abnormalities early, when they are easiest to treat.

A patient interested in the screening should talk with their physician, and, if the physician concurs, a prescription is given and the patient can make an appointment for a pre-screening by a Registered Nurse in the Cardiopulmonary Department. During the pre-screening, the nurse goes over smoking cessation options (how to quit smoking), if needed, and offers information on any support groups that may also benefit the patient.
