Ok folks – thanks for all the support, stories and sharing of your experiences. Tomorrow I’m scheduled for THR on my left hip. After 4+ years of progressive deterioration, I made it a priority to get healthy in 2014. Everyone’s stories and experiences have helped me get to a “take action” state of mind.
I’m so looking forward to getting tomorrow behind me so that I can get on the road to recovery.
Let the games begin. I’m ready!!… (Click Here to View Full Post and Comments)
I’m curious to know what brand / model devices folks are running on.
Any real life success stories (or challenges) are welcome.
Thanks!… (Click Here to View Full Post and Comments)
I’m a 47 year old male who has been active as a runner for the past 20+ years.
I even got involved with smaller scale on-road and off-road triathlons before my left hip became chronically sore to the point that I have basically stopped running as of earlier this summer.
My primary goal is to be pain-free so that I can have a normal daily life (play with kids, do yard-work, basic day-today activities).
But if I could return to some level of jogging, running, biking, etc…, that would be a huge bonus. (I’m much happier when I can run 3-4 days a week…even if its at a slower pace).
I’m looking for REAL stories / feedback to find out if it’s realistic to return to these activities via FHP or Resurfacing.
I welcome all response and feedback!
