Right Hip Resurfacing with De Smet - 18 months post op
« on: September 13, 2018, 07:34:37 PM »
I'm happy to report that I LOVE my new hip. I had follow-up xrays which shoed everything looking good, and my non-op hip in perfect shape, as well.

Last year I decided to try racing (I've been rowing for 9 years, but not racing, and the pain was unbearable by the end). I'm happy to report that at the end of this month I am going to FISA Worlds in Florida to race SIX times in three days. Kind of crazy.

I still have trouble with my glute medius, which has been down and out for over a decade, but with PT, strength training, and dry needling, it's coming back. That piece just takes time.

So happy I had this surgery, and so grateful for Pat and the people on this site who gave me so much valuable information.

What a great come back story!

Those little issues will get solved. I am three years out and still improving---and it is the little things that are falling into place.
