    Hi Ray

    Glad you've done all the research and hopefully that means you won't be trying any of the 'expensive' and not effective snake oils out there!

    You do not have the best job to have a hip issue do you?

    My youngest (at 18) had to have hip and shoulder surgery and she was training to be a hairdresser!

    Typical isn't it?!
