My journey since operation: I spent a very long time trying to get my strength back, which was lost not during the surgery, but during the injury. Limping around, … Read the rest

January 8, 2017 – In June, 2015, about three years after my HR, I did a tandem jump. It was my first skydiving experience ever. I didn’t even think twice about my hip for this. After running a marathon, skiing, playing ice hockey, long jumping, and sprinting it didn’t even occur to me that there’s be anything special to worry about for this.

January 2, 2017 – Just wanted to share an update. I am a bilateral resurfacing with Dr Su. I am a year and 10 days out and climbed(hiked) Mt Greylock in Massachusetts on 12/31/16. Deep snow which required some post hole-in. Tired and sore(except the hips) handled it much better then the other fifty year olds did.
…At the beginning of 2014, I underwent the hip resurfacing surgery. True to Dr. Su’s words, I returned to fencing a year after the surgery. Remarkably, a year and a half after my surgery, I won two medals at the 2015 World Championship: bronze in the individual and silver in the team competition. In 2016 I won the Russian National Championship, and the team gold at the European Championships. My … Read the rest
