As previously reported, my recovery has been wonderful. Had surgery 2/22/14. Since then, lots of running, cycling, backcountry skiing, etc.
Final test: Skiing at Vail.
Whoopee! Deep powder, steep back bowls, 4 hours of bliss and a few ass-over-elbow tumbles. Never once thought about my hip.
It was in part the confidence I got from this site that led me to a surgeon who doesn’t believe all the conservative nonsense.
Happy New Year to all Hipsters!
