Hip Disease Healed

In 1888 I had an attack of typhoid fever. Just before I took to my bed I fell, bruising my hip, which soon developed an abscess. After three months, the fever left me with the abscess still unhealed, and finally it developed into hip disease, which kept growing worse. For five years I suffered from it, and at times the limb was so drawn up that I could only touch the floor with my toe.

I had four operations performed, but kept growing worse, notwithstanding the encouragement of each surgeon before he performed the operation. The last operation was the most severe, the incision being eighteen inches in length penetrating to the bone. When I recovered from the effects of the anæsthetic, I was told my hip was found in a very bad condition, that there was a piece of dead bone at the head of the hip bone, and when an attempt was made to force it off it adhered so firmly that it was thought best not to remove it, as it might cause hemorrhage.
