RBHR Dr. Feldman 4/14/2011
Patricia – Add another 77 year old guy to the list! Had my right hip resurfaced by Dr. Feldman at Englewood Hospital, Englewood, NJ on Valentine’s Day, Feb. 14th.
Went from the hospital after 2-3 days to a live-in rehab for 11 days and now I’m home with in-house rehab. Everyone says I’m coming along fine.
Thank you for your encouragement. Hope to be walking pain-free on my own in a few weeks and then I hope to be back on the field playing softball and baseball this Summer!

Here’s an update from that March email. I went for my 12th week post-op last week and Dr. Feldman said I’m moving along fine. Still have swelling in my right thigh and knee but it hasn’t stopped me from playing 10 games of softball already! I have absolutely NO PAIN when I walk and the doc says I can start running in about a month….not bad for an old guy of 77!
I head out the end of June for Houston to play on the New Jersey Over 75 State Softball Team in the 2011 Senior Olympics. I’m having a ball after waiting over 3 years for my heart to qualify for the operation. Last Thursday I even went to my first BASEBALL practice…but I took it easy.
Hope all is well with you. Plan on getting in at least 100+ games this year! Let’s go SurfaceHippies!!!!
