When I first learned I needed a hip replacement I was 46. I thought I was too young and tried waiting it out. I started looking for alternatives other than a full hip replacement. My journey took me to first getting a cortisone injection. This did nothing for me other than have the experience of getting an injection in my groin. Next I started doing Bikram yoga to try and gain flexibility … Read the rest
In July of 2006, a month before my wedding and in the first year of my thirties, I thought I pulled a muscle in my thigh. I let it drag on for about six months, continuing my usual recreational activities of golf, softball, and ice hockey.

Had a BHR on my left hip last Sept 20. I had had arthritis from a previous hip fracture accompanied by severe IT/knee pain.

I should have written this article some time ago so others could know my experience with hip resurfacing.

I am new here and scheduled for BHR with Dr. Brooks on December 20. I’m also a marathon runner. I know Dr. Brooks says I shouldn’t run for a year, which pains me.

I had left BHR with Dr. Brooks on December 20. He said it was “perfect, textbook surgery” and I got out of the hospital a day earlier than I had planned.
But now I’m home and … Read the rest
