atlaw, it's funny you said that. I had hip replacement surgery the 29th of October and requested the ball end off my leg bone too as you said. My surgeon kept mine also because it's considered medical waste. Oddly two weeks prior I was in the hospital for Lithotripsy, a procedure to break up kidney stones, so I could pass them. They also put a "stent" in my ureter to help the stones get to my bladder easier. I had to collect the stones and give them up for lab analysis, but when they removed the stent from me a week later they let me keep it! My hip joint or my kidney stones would have been a story in the making, but nobody wants to see a 12" little straw that was in my body. There should be a law since it was ours anyway, right?
I may have passed my "Best Before" date but I haven't reached my "Use By" date.
