7 Year Update – December 18, 2016
Seven years and three months post op for a Right BHR.
Have had no issues. Blood metals are now decreasing. Could not be happier. I wrote an article post op, seven years ago detailing my then short but successful journey. I am now back mountain biking and have no issue completing 60-70 km per ride.
My surgeon, Dr. Lawrence Kohan (Sydney/Australia) did an amazing job, and all of his forecasting has been accurate.
I highly recommend him and his anaesthetist Dr. Kerr for their pre and post operative care.
My new hip allows me to perform all of my normal activities well and I do not think about it ever.
It is now time to consider either a Partial or Total Left Knee replacement. Of course, I will be visiting Dr. Kohan and his team for this surgery. No questions asked. My best man has just had his second hip resurfaced by Dr. Kohan. His progress is amazing. He is three weeks post op, and is back on the building site. Just no heavy lifting or serious bending!!
A fantastic journey for me so far. Now a new one with the knee.
