Update 11 months post hip resurfacing surgery with Dr. Ihekweazu (trained by Dr. Su) in Houston, TX.
I had no choice but to stay in Texas for my surgery because of insurance and Dr. Ihekweazu seemed like the best choice and the consultation went great. It was definitely a tough couple of days post surgery and I tried to end the meds too early but things healed exceptionally well. I did this surgery to continue… Read the rest

Also, I have run numerous marathons and was a long distance runner for more that 50 years. I’ll be a slow healer but … Read the rest

My turn to announce another anniversary – 7 years of BHR left hip, and 4.5 years ceramic THR right hip.

Today marks 3 years since i had my Left Hip resurfaced by Mr Othman at Grantham Hospital UK. I have been back at my previous levels of work and exercise for quite a while now, and ‘touch wood’ have not had any major issues to date.

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). … Read the rest
