Fig's Hip Resurfacing Story with Dr. Weeden 2013
May 17, 2012
I had an appointment last year with Dr. Weeden who does THR and BHR. I am 54
and he said a BHR would be possible for me. I have not spoken to anyone who had
hip resurfacing by Dr. Weeden but have spoke to others who had knee operations
and were very happy with him.

Just had right BHR with Dr Weeden in Fort Worth, TX on April 23, 2013. I am
home now after 2 days in the hospital. Very little pain so far. Looking forward
to resuming activities such as tennis and maybe even softball. Thank you for
this site. I got a lot of information here and think hip resurfacing was the
right choice for me.

8 days post-op. Recovery so far has been better than I expected. Trying to
walk with a cane today instead of walker. I have been having a problem trying to
sleep on my back in order to not violate 90 degree between hip and knee.

Slept last night in a recliner chair and no back pain in the morning. Get
staples out tomorrow 13 days after surgery. Walking pretty good now with a cane.
