December 28, 2016 was my new hip’s 6 month anniversary. I celebrated by skiing 8 miles into the backcountry and climbing a 10,000’ peak. The snow was soft and irresistible for making turns. I finally decided to turn it loose on the downhills. It was a blast. I even took a fall on the new hip and nothing happened!
So that’s my story. So far, my hip resurfacing experience has been all positive. I know for a fact that I’m way better off than I’d be without having surgery. I know others with total hip replacements that feel the same way. The resurfacing, however, provides more options and maybe more longevity. If you’ve got a funky hip like I once had, I suggest that you contact a surgeon with a reputation like that of Dr. Pritchett, before making a decision. For me, well I’ll keep charging ahead until something goes wrong.
