Newbie

Hi All,

I’ve been reading the posts here for about 6 months and I have to confess that it’s this group that really made me feel ok about moving forward with my replacement. I had the left hip (anterior) approach done on May 22nd – am a Triathlete (3 Ironmans, countless 1/2s and sprint distances), trail runner (all distances including 50ks) and marathoner (Boston Finisher), 55 year old female…AND I didn’t want the “fun” to end ALREADY! So thank you all for inspiring me and helping me get this new lease. I’m 5 weeks out, still have some swelling in the upper thigh area, but if you didn’t know it..you wouldn’t be able to tell that I had a replacement – I’m walking  3-5 miles/day, swam (the pools are open now!) already and am just waiting for the healing process to really do it’s thing so I can slowly start running again (I’m not in a hurry…I’ll take my time). I look forward to posting more about my personal progress and in the meantime enjoy reading about the progress of others. Thanks “HipBrother Tom” for starting this site!

      Good show, Newbie! No limping at 5 weeks is good, real good. Congrats, enjoy!
