Honestly, I wasted time and procrastinated over having surgery as I had never met anyone my age (52), and thought I was too young, and only had experience of hip replacement in the emergency situation when people have fallen etc and fractured the neck of Femur. I had several injections, none of which ever really worked, and on occasion made the pain worse. I'm now day 12 post op replacement, and honestly, yes, its not been comfortable, and it looks like I may have some wound infection starting up, but that horrific, relentless pain, fatigue and bone on bone grinding is gone. I wish I had given in a year ago and seen sense
On November 15, 2007, a federal grand jury returned an indictment against Bonds. He was charged with four counts of perjury and one count of obstruction of justice. "During the criminal investigation, evidence was obtained including positive tests for the presence of anabolic steroids and other performance enhancing substances for Bonds and other athletes," the indictment reads. The charges focus on Bonds' responses to the grand jury in his 2003 testimony, specifically his denials when asked if he had used steroids, and whether Anderson had administered steroids to him.     The Giants, Major League Baseball and its players' union all expressed sadness at the indictment, and even the White House weighed in, calling it a "sad day in baseball".
