Right Hip Resurface Update. 61 year old fit male.
I had my right Hip resurfaced with Professor Julien Girard in Lille on 1st October 2019.
I have been road biking 100km per week all through lockdown since March 2020. All with no real issues. I had a little groin pain in April 2020 but I think the pain was just from biking regularly with very little other exercise during lockdown in the UK.
I skied off piste twice in February 2020. All with no issues.
Just to make sure I had my hip x rayed in May and Professor Girard checked the x ray which showed the implant to be perfect.
I have sailed a small laser dinghy and swam, kayaked and road biked most days throughout the summer in France for the last 7 weeks.
My hip is feeling fantastic with no pain after biking hard or any sport causing any issues. I have no pains or aches whatsoever now.
In fact I have forgotten that my hip ever had any issues.
Professor Girard and his team in Lille did a fantastic job on my hip and I cant thank them enough..
