Welcome Back

The Hip Talk Discussion Forum was hacked a few weeks back. It has taken me a long time to fix it. The only backup I could use was way back to April 2020. All members and posts up to that date are available. Anything newer has been lost. I am sorry, but that has been the only way to get things up and running again.

10 weeks post op
« on: February 23, 2009, 04:07:04 PM »

Hello Hippy Friends ,



Sorry I fell off the map and have not kept you posted on my progress ! I have been looking at the website and reading the posts just havent found the time to write in. I really want to thank a few people especially Pat for all of her time and passion on this topic and Hawaii Eric for his Aloha ! It was a bit frustrating at times going through my recovery as I seemed to be a slow healer. Dr Scmalzreid told me the day after surgery that my hip was a real mess and I should have had it done a few years earlier. At my 6 week he said all looks good and lifted all bending restrictions. I am still in aquatic therapy a few times a week and really feel the benefit of the stretching exercises they give me in the pool. I am about to start swimming laps again this week and I have set a goal to go surfing again by April or May.There have been a few days lately that I have seen the surf and I have really been getting the itch to get out there but I keep telling myself that I have waited this long so another 2 months will not be that long to wait.(Wayne San o ? ) What  a crazy road this has been but it is amazing to be able to walk and be positive again !

                                             Thank you !

                                              George

Hey George:
Congrats on your progress to date....

Remember, how you take care of your hip now (I know the waves are calling), is only going to benefit you for years to come....

Be patient, grasshopper ;)

George,

I have to thank you for the kind words there...
Guess we need to start sending in our addresses as our reunion should be coming up and plans are for us hipsters to meet on some beach, surf lots of waves and well..tan our scars over the beers that come with the territory.  (wouldn't that be funny to video the faces of those approaching..LOL)

Wayne, I hope the surf stays pumping for you when you go for it..very impressed that you did the double hole shot in one day and your having a great recovery..

The wind backed off for me today..my days off..and the wind returns when I go back to my office Thursday...go figure, guess a some rest for me might be good at this time..

Amazing how the 10 weeks flys by.  I was just there and now around 15 weeks, I am so happy that there is no pain where there was before..I noticed prior that my lymph node was swelling and acking before surgery...I have noticed that that pain has not been there after the surgery..just noticed that the other day, for that pain was 30% or so of my pain along with my limping around, guess there was more then just the bone on bone for me.

Well, aloha for now,
Eric

Hey gl3,  Glad to hear your making progress.  10-12 weeks was where I could start pushing a little harder without paying so much the next day. I know what you mean about seeing good surf !!  You'll be back in the water soon. A day at sand oafs sounds good to me,  IN !!!
