Lori had her first hip resurfacing with a BHR withDr. Rector in 2011. Her original story is here. When she needed her other hip resurfaced, BHRs were no longer available for women. So she went to Dr. Gross for a Biomet hip resurfacing.

I am 8 days post op of Dr gross. My surgery was Friday. I flew home on Sunday.I wore a calf length skirt tulip style, Regular undies And a Calvin t shirt. I used wheelchair assistance and took two planes, not the best day of my life, but also not the worst.

Today I am at 14 days post op and having to take it easy.
I was going to hard on my PT of walking. I started to walk with a cane and did 1.5 miles for three days and then my hip swelled. I am waiting for it to go down in swelling again, I just over did it.
I am looking forward to a walk tomorrow with the kids to the park and see the horses.
It is hard for me to do nothing, I so want to go for my 1.5 mile walk, but having to sit still.
Overall I am doing really well, I cannot believe that I am on a cane as of 10 days post op. I also could not believe that I could walk the distance.

I am nearly at 3 weeks post op and purchased the Kodiak from Dr Gross for $250.
I highly recommend it, not as good as the game ready, by I would say 955 as good.
I rented the game read for $350 for 2 weeks and I purchased the Kodiak for $250.
I was overdoing it. I have cut back and so has the swelling. I am not taking a 1.5 mile walk any more, but over the a 1 mile walk. Doing really well and very thankful, that I was able to go to Dr. Gross.
