    Procedure or Surgery (Surgery): With the steroids I was on it causes ostoporisis which I was told on july 7 that I needed a double hip replacement. the first one was august 14 2013 by that time I could barely walk I was in so much pain. I was out 2 days later feeling 100 percent better I could walk with the help of a walker, then the cane then with nothing. october23 I had the second hip replaced out the next day. today is the 31 walking again with the help of a walker. then by the middle of December I am hoping I will get the green light to go back to work as a nurses aid (psw) in a nursing home

    Drug or Chemo Therapy (stem cell transplant on april 25): it killed a lot of cells in the back of my throat and my stomach. I could not keep anything down for almost 2 months I had lost 15 pounds I started off at 115. I started to just eat broth and milk because that was the only thing that I could keep down.
