I have been a long distance runner for almost 3 Decades. I took up the discipline seriously when I was in my early 30s. I peaked at the age of 47, PB Half Marathons in 1.15 (75 mins at the age of 47). I continued to train, race in half and full Marathons until right hip pain in 2017 restricted my performance however, I continued to train and race. I average 50 to 60 mile per week and race at least once a month. I can manage a sub 1.39 1/2 Marathon but not for much longer due to the severe arthritic right hip. I managed to, eventually, be accepted for a resurfacing (after having refused twice the offer of total hip) … Read the rest
It’s my ten year anniversary for my first hip resurfacing. My second was done on November 29th of the same year, 2010.
I am thankful about the last ten years, and give great love and respect to Pat, whose efforts on this site really supported me on the path to and early after my surgeries.
The hips are in great shape, despite my activities.
A few weeks into covid working from home, I started feeling sciatic pain on my right leg. I worried at first that it may be my hip(s), but went to see my surgeon. The x rays came back perfect, no anomalies and such.
Also had metals measured, and although there’s a slight rise from before, they are well below any limits.… Read the rest

5 years today November 19 with my Left BHR Birmingham Hip Resurfacing and 30 months with my Right THR total hip replacement.
Both are doing well, although my Right leg had a problem with thigh pain over Xmas last year. Still managed to keep climbing and cycling but had to stop running for a couple of months. Since then have gone from strength to strength – long days in the hills, long bike rides, longish runs including a 10 mile race (for the first time in 9 years, and 10 minutes slower than those heady days) and gradually getting decent fitness back. Still got all the other problems you are supposed to get at my age but the hips … Read the rest
Sep 21, 2019 Bilateral Hip Resurfacing.
This is the first two weeks of my recovery/rehab process.
The first few days were really tough. I have worked at quad and glute activation since I woke up. Walking since the first night.
The worst part of my first two weeks was the spinal head ache/reaction I had when the epidural didn’t close properly (It required a trip to the ER and a blood patch to close it). That set me back a few days.
Mostly I am amazed by how much less pain I have vs pre-operative. Currently the hardest part for me has been finding a comfortable position to sleep as I am usually a side sleeper and I have a 5.5 inch (15cm incision on … Read the rest

This is the first training session after surgery where I train my legs with kicks and Vovinam techniques. Obviously it’s all a bit like starting over but knowing what to do. At the moment the real muscular and non-articular sober difficulties. The left hip works great. I feel free .. in short, new, but my muscles need a good workout, more than anything else because I could no longer stretch as I was used to, so I lost a lot of elasticity, but I will definitely get back in shape … Read the rest
2019 Update. I am back to Ballooning and everything I love. Great hip resurfacing that changed my life.

I’m new to the site and thanks for everyone’s stories, it really helps getting my head in the right place for what is ahead. I’m scheduled for a BHR with Dr Eastaugh Waring in Bristol, UK on 13th November 2015. Seems I’m in a similar situation to lots on with years of playing squash and football have left me in this situation at 46, hoping this will mean I can at least put my socks on without problems at least!
My sport of choice is probably a new one on here, I don’t run or do anything particularly extreme but what I … Read the rest
9 Year Anniversary of My Hip Resurfacing Surgery with Dr. Snyder in 2010
Read Hernanu’s original story here: https://surfacehippy.info/hernan-bilateral-hip-resurfacing-dr-snyder-2010/
I figured I’d check the hips as well, for my (almost) nine year anniversary of my hip resurfacing.
The hips looked great, had blood work done for Cobalt (I guess they just track that now in that office), it came back at 1.0 with both hips.
So the progression has gone : First test – Chromium 3.4, Cobalt 3.1, After four years – Chromium 1.7, Cobalt 1.1 and now after nine years – Cobalt 1.0 Having both hips done and the bar being to stay under 7, it is very good news.
I understand that some of us have challenges after hip resurfacing surgery, all the … Read the rest

When Tony Switzer’s hip was too young for replacement, Dr. Eric Nelson, from Waupun Memorial Hospital, a member of Agnesian HealthCare, suggested hip resurfacing, saving Tony and his wife a hospital trip far away. Now Tony is back in the swing of things after his hip resurfacing and enjoying his favorite activities pain free.
Hip Resurfacing patient, Andy Murray, meanwhile, may have been watching on with interest in the match with Bob Bryan. Bob Bryan secured a second title of the season. Bob is returning to tennis after hip resurfacing surgery at the start of this year.
Bryan had the same hip resurfacing operation as Andy. He won the three-time Grand Slam champion last summer. He partnered his brother Mike to a 7-5 7-6 (10-8) win over Greece’s Stefanos Tsitsipas and the Netherlands’ Wesley Koolhof.
Bob had his hip resurfacing with Dr. Su in 2018.
It has been so long since I reached out to say hi and I apologize for that. Once you get your life back you tend to jump in full blast and not look back. I hung around the surface hippy site for a few years but when the notes became so negative I had to back off. It wasn’t syncing with what was going on in my life post-surgery. I just saw Dr. Rubinstein last week and I thought about you and wondered how you were doing. I am writing to do just that.
I hope all is still well with you and the family. I started playing hockey 6 months after surgery and continue to play to this day … Read the rest

My hips are now and have been for a long time feeling perfect. I’m grateful for the new life this has given me and the opportunities to both take up old joys and to explore new ones.
I want to thank Pat in particular for providing this wonderful site to people who are seeking and in need. I also want to let the hippies who advised and encouraged me when I first joined, it is a particular kind of relief to find that you are not alone.
