Joint Replacement Surgery Could Go Wrong - EZorb Won't
In a fast-paced branch office of a major financial
institution, Betty looks just like others who work
there. The difference is that Betty has just recovered
from severe osteoarthritis in both of her ankles and
significant bone loss in the back and the
Betty lives with her cat Eugene in the suburb of
Chicago. The 48-year-old woman had been bothered by
osteoarthritis since her mid-thirties. She had been
living on steroids and anti-inflammatory medications
ever since. But things got really bad in the past four
Right before Christmas of 1999 Betty felt a piercing
pain in the back when she tried to move around the
coffee table in her living room. The next morning she
woke up paralyzed with excruciating pain.
"I was so scared," said Betty. "I
didn't know what had happened and didn't know what to
do. My cat Eugene knew something was wrong and tried to
pull me off the bed. But I couldn't move."
Betty was eventually taken to a hospital emergency
room. X-Ray showed the back pain was caused by two
fractured-vertebrae. Further diagnosis revealed Betty
had developed severe osteoporosis.
"I knew (bone loss) was a side effect of
steroids but I had a hard time accepting it," said
Betty. "I was eating well and taking all the
supplements my doctor recommended. What else should I
The doctor quickly added Fosamax to Betty's long list
The following year was a nightmare for Betty. The
osteoarthritis pain in her ankles and the side effects
of the medications took turns tormenting her.
In mid 2001 Betty's swollen right ankle got so big
that she could hardly stick it into the shoe. The pain
had become unbearable. Her rheumatologist finally sent
her to a surgeon for ankle replacement.
The operation was scheduled for October. The company
management was kind enough to let Betty take leave of
absence from her job.
Right before the operation Betty was told that an
incision would be made in her abdomen in order to
acquire crumbles of bone off her hip. The bone mass
obtained would be inserted around the metal bracket to
encourage growth of bone in the ankle.
The procedures went quite smoothly. But the following
day a large lump appeared in Betty's abdomen. This was
later proven to be harmless, but it had made her very
uncomfortable. Two days after the operation Betty
suddenly felt terribly ill and started vomiting.
"It was the worst (vomit) I've ever had."
Betty said. But the surgeon failed to provide an
explanation on what had caused that.
During the recovery, the skin around her thigh became
completely numb. "It seems that the surgeon had
accidentally damaged a nerve," said Betty.
"The result was a stinging feeling under the skin
of my thigh. Sometimes it could be quite painful. But
the skin itself was completely 'gone'."
After a couple of follow-up office visits the ankle
surgeon declared the operation a "technical
success". "Although the replacement has indeed
given that ankle a little bit more strength," said
Betty. "The swelling and pain were just as bad one
year later, as they were before the operation."
"Sometimes I could feel the implant hitting my
flesh," Betty said "That feeling alone was
killing me. I had to be really cautious and learn to
shift my weight towards the better ankle."
Five months later Betty's other ankle started getting
bigger and more painful. But this time she rejected it
right away when the rheumatologist advised her for
another ankle replacement.
In May 2002 Betty's mom Lisa came visit and stayed
for about a month. Lisa brought with her a case of EZorb.
Lisa had been using EZorb for
osteoporosis and had seen
dramatic improvement in bone density.
Having tried almost everything in vain Betty didn't
show much enthusiasm for the EZorb pills. But Lisa
insisted and made sure her daughter take it every day.
"I am so grateful that my mom was around when I
needed her," Betty said, "She literally forced
EZorb down my throat."
After one month use of EZorb Betty gradually noticed
that the pain in both of her ankles reduced
significantly. She decided to hold back her excitement
till she could confirm the results.
The following weeks Betty spent some serious time
learning the product. "The EZorb folks are great.
They really know their stuff. They were so patient in
answering every one of my questions. I'm amazed how much
I have learned over a short period of time." Betty
Another two months went by, Betty found herself
walking uphill to a park about a half mile away and
downhill to her favorite Mongolian Buffet. She still
needed to pay attention to the replaced right ankle,
making sure her movement wouldn't touch a particular
spot where it could trigger pain. But other than that
she could walk around and do things she liked without
In February 2003 Betty couldn't be more excited to
find out from the DEXA scan report that her bone density
had increased by 21% from what it was two years ago.
Spring of 2003 brought a fully recharged Betty back
to her familiar work place. "It feels great coming
back here and working with the same group of people I'm
always fond of."
As her final words to our readers Betty said:
"Joint replacement surgery should be your very last
resort. Don't take it easily just because your doctor
recommends it. I personally wouldn't advise anybody to
go through a replacement operation unless you are over
90 years old - until then EZorb should be your first
