Game-day Tomorrow (surgery!)

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)

Gayle – Comtemplating Full Hip Replacement vs. Resurfacing

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!
