Maybe you can hold out and see if they'll give you some of that there
medicinal grade grass. May or may not work, but it's worth a good try.
Really, though, if things get out of hand with your hip, I knew a guy who
had his hip replaced (some sort of plastic & steel gizmo), and he's dancing
like Fred Astaire now. Maybe there's one in your future?
Good luck,
