In June of 2013,Dr. Higgs replaced my rt. knee. I wanted a spinal anesthesia & he said he only did general even though I told him they made me "goofy" Sure enough I was nutty for 17 days when my sister flew out from Chicago & brought me home. Don't know what drug I was on,but those days were pure hell.. So no more surgeries for me. Helen Daniels
