Thanks.
I saw my hip Doctor last week for 5 yr check up. They will never have to be replaced. Plus he said I should not have any trouble walking. The knees are good for another 5 to 10 years. Interesting, he said I won't have symptoms. I get them all rechecked in another 5 years.
My rehab for the back will be walking 30 min twice a day.
I decided to cut my mirapex in half. I hadn't taken it for awhile and spasms were getting bad. I can't believe how much I sleep on the night I take it. I'm thinking that I might cut it into 4ths. It totally takes away the spasms.

can't hurt to see if a quarter of a tab will work. Wouldn't that be amazing?
