January 8, 2017 – In June, 2015, about three years after my HR, I did a tandem jump. It was my first skydiving experience ever. I didn’t even think twice about my hip for this. After running a marathon, skiing, playing ice hockey, long jumping, and sprinting it didn’t even occur to me that there’s be anything special to worry about for this.
Its now 30 months Post Op, [7/7/2014] and everything is just great with my hip. I have no worries or problems doing Triathlon, so long as I keep it to Standard Olympic Distance/Sprint Distances only.
Swimming and Biking pose no issues, but once I start running in excess of 12km, whammo, the pain starts to arise. Any thought of doing a Half Ironman is “out the back-door”. I find I … Read the rest
January 2, 2017 – Just wanted to share an update. I am a bilateral resurfacing with Dr Su. I am a year and 10 days out and climbed(hiked) Mt Greylock in Massachusetts on 12/31/16.

I finally decided to turn it loose on the downhills. It was a blast. I even took a fall on the new hip and nothing happened!
So that’s my story. So far, … Read the rest

At Baylor, Gary was treated with an advanced, new procedure called hip resurfacing. “Before the procedure,” he says, “they spent a lot of time talking to me about options, what was important to me. You
December 26, 2016 – Life seems to be a never ending story of learning and trying to achieve certain goals in life – or get back to a normal “you” or to try and fit back into society.
I had my bilateral resurfacing April 2015 and most has gone well. Although I am not fond of the scars and appearance the functionality and pain has … Read the rest
December 14, 2016 – Time continues to positively fly by and I am still incredibly pleased with my new chrome parts.
Starting about the 6 month mark I began increasing the intensity of my mountain biking and spin bike training. While I’m definitely not back to 100% strength I feel like I’m heading in the right direction and feel like my progress is accelerating. I’m … Read the rest
