Because Hipbro Tom’s site was so helpful, I feel guilty being away so long. I won’t repeat my tale, but in February I celebrated 4 year anniversary of right hip replacement.
For anyone considering the procedure, go for it. I literally cannot tell I had a replacement. I mountain bike nearly every day. I run if I feel like it, with ease and no notice of my hip. I’d run more, but I don’t care because I’m too old to ever run as fast as I once did. I ski, backpack, jump, fall . . . everything and anything. I shudder to think of what life would be like if I didn’t take the plunge.
Best to you, Hipbrother! Still grateful!
