The surgeon ordered the scan to make sure there is enough bone in my acetabulum for him to use his funky spherical drill on.... He essentially needs to build a proper acetabulum for my new hip because I don't actually have a proper socket to begin with. Gross! The day I asked the surgeon how he deals with such a shallow acetabulum, he started to describe the cheese grater drill thing......ew. If there is not enough bone, he has ways to deal with that but he will need to order some special material to build the acetabulum, so the scan was needed.
Anyways, the scan is done. Now on to finding someone to build railings for my front step!
