Ian's Hip Resurfacing with Dr. Gopal 2009

July 27, 2011

I am 2 years down the road I have just run a 5k in 20.47 minutes at my local gym with no pain or discomfort!
I run an under 10 football team which I love and enjoy and my new hip resurface has let me do this without reservation!
I play squash again and won my first game back after 2 and a half years 3-2 ha-ha

After my op I was swimming in 2 weeks light jogging in 6 weeks and sprinting in 10 weeks so if you have any doubts about this operation please look and see the results because before this I could not run properly had trouble sleeping and was rather grumpy!

My running believe it or not is actually better since i got my left hip resurfaced in September 2009!

I am 3 years nearly down the line after having my Birmingham hip and all I can say is WOW!!

I'm this time I have entered many running competitions 10k ,10 mile ,full marathon and completed all of them with ease -except the marathon phew last 4 miles was a killer.

This Friday gone June 21st 2013 I completed a charity bike ride across the full length of Britain from Morcambe to Bridlington (war of the roses) which was 173 miles in one day. My hip is 100%.

Thank you to my surgeon Dr. Gopal to my friends and my family.

Don't be scared this operation has transformed my life good luck to anyone who needs it!!!
