October 31, 2010 I’m 11 days out of surgery with Dr. Pritchett in Seattle and feel I’m doing about average. It’s interesting reading the various posts and comparing other experiences and recovery time lines with mine. I left the hospital on crutches, two days post op, and was walking 2 miles on one crutch by day 5. Yesterday I walked for two hours, in addition to my 3 rounds of … Read the rest
Update May 24, 2016
I have taught and coached high level skiing for 46 years, the past 8 years on my resurfaced hip. Dr Gross encouraged me to ski on it, and I started skiing at six months post surgery. I have heard of people rarely having trouble with THRs when skiing; dislocations, femoral fractures. I have many friends including instructors, ski patrollers, and students who ski with THRs, and … Read the rest
February 17, 2010 Dr. Della Valle resurfaced my right hip on 12/18/09. Tomorrow will be 2 months and I feel great. I can put my socks on, tie my shoes and even clip my toe nails. I would think he has way more than 100 by now as he is in great demand. I had to wait 6 weeks to see him and another 2 months for the surgery. He … Read the rest
I am almost 5 yrs post op on my right hip. At 6 months post op, I started back with a little running, never intending on getting back to the 20-25 miles a week I had been doing before the pain stopped me. Dr Clarke told me some running is ok but progress slowly and don’t do marathons. It felt so good to run pain free and as time went … Read the rest

My pain has been in the front of the thigh with a lot of cramping type pain in the leg. I am only allowed to put 75% of my weight on the leg for 6 weeks after the surgery. I was … Read the rest
I’m 51 and have bilateral from Dr. Bose 2010 and 2011.
These are some notes that might help anyone going into the hip repair project. Story starts in 1999, after doing a gym competition, which involved spinning at 150+ RPM for about 7 minutse; to win a track suit (never collected) my hips became very stiff. Ignoring this for a year, did a long triathlon in Japan, with a marathon … Read the rest

From : Ms Joan Gunnes:
Ok, I thought you’d enjoy this……I started teaching my yoga class 13 days post op! Yes, I stood with my cane for most of it, but I could do side bends, some forward and backward bending and I did in fact teach the class! And I’ve been at it ever … Read the rest
February 11, 2011 So, today is my big day. We woke up at 3:30 a.m. to get showered and dressed for my 5:30 check-in at Thornton Hospital at UC San Diego.
Most everything has gone very smoothly and I can’t say enough good things about the doctors, nurses, and staff here. I was fully prepped and in the OR by 7:30 a.m. A few minutes of bantering with the surgical … Read the rest
