This week I travelled down to Anchorage to meet with my Dr who will be performing my total hip replacement surgery and I got a date, February 15th! My official diagnosis is Femoroacetabular Impingement (FAI), I have excess bone formed on the edge of my femoral head that has completely worn down the cartilage in the socket which is now bone on bone. He will be performing an anterior surgery using Ceramic/plastic as well as a pressed in knit stem in the femur. This type of stem is not cemented in place but is pressed and allows the bone to grow into the stem. We had a lengthy conversation regarding materials and considering my desire to return to running this was the best choice. Now I have a little over a month to get ready for the surgery and post surgery. One thought is how to prehab?
