I’m 47 years old and had BHR on October 12, 2010 – Dr. Darren Kerr in Saint John, NB, Canada.
I returned to work today (October 25, 2010) – but I’m a lawyer so I am used to sitting on my butt all day anyway! I’ve been very fortunate with pain and mobility – using a cane after day 2 and needed little in the way of pain medication since the procedure.
I’m sort of waiting for something bad to happen but so far so good. IMHO over and above my young age, the reason I’ve had such an easy ride is preparation – I trained hard for approximately a year with a personal trainer to get ready for this and I think I was ready. I had heard that the more work you are able to do before hand, the less recuperating time / pain afterwards. I know this is not for all but I can attest (at least so far) how it has worked for me.
