Hey there hippies, it’s been awhile since I’ve posted here, mostly because my new hips are doing so well I rarely think about them. My left hip is now 13 months old, my right hip 15 months, and both are doing great.
This past weekend I returned to skydiving, with a couple jumps and no problems. Tomorrow I’m going on a couple days backpacking trip, and in two weeks I’m running a 5K. Pain is infrequent and only occurs in short bursts at the edges of my ROM, likely from my femoral neck catching an edge of the new socket? Major muscles all seem completely recovered, and smaller muscles seem to still be improving (crossing legs is easy if done quickly but slow and deliberate reveals some weakness, and my left leg tries to swing wide when running around a curve/corner to my right).
Overall I’m incredibly happy with the results and glad to have my life back, much improved over what it was like the last several years. Onward and upward!
