Poll - I am satisfied with my hip resurfacing at 1 year post op

There has been a request for a poll to ask people how satisfied they were with their hip resurfacing.  I made up a poll and asked only people that are 1 year post op to participate.  Most people are mostly recovered at 6 months post op, but it does take at least a year to become fully recovered.  So those of you still in your post op recovery, please wait until you are one year post op to tell us how you feel about your hip resurfacing.

I would have still said "Tentatively" at 6 months. But now, at 1 year, I can unequivocally say that it is awesome, and that I would do it again without hesitation.  And, I probably will have to anyway.

I played tennis last night for an hour and a half, with a good amount of scrambling around the court, and I didn't think about my hip even once.

Feb,22 2013 will be my 1 year postop.  So far so good. Work as a firefighter and playing ice hockey twice week in Fort Myers, Florida.. My right resurfaced hip (dr Raterman,Tampa) does not give me any issues whatsoever.  May have to get left one done in another year or so but holding out  until I have to.

All good here at 13+ months post-op.  Ran five miles last night in Central Park.  Steady as she goes...

at about 16 months now and I can say that the better question that I ask myself often, is how I could have survived without the resurfacing.  I know that a THR would have given me relief from the pain, but I continually surprise myself with my level of activity and the lack of issues.  I feel very fortunate that I met someone who had gone through it prior to my accepting a THR as my only option.

A key question for me these days is what should be a reasonable set of expectations.  A lot of us have had very active sports backgrounds, including a fair dose of impact sports (guess how we got into trouble in the first place!).

I'm feeling really well now and have started to run (just a natural interest/temptation).  The reality is, however, we don't read about or see a lot (emphasis on a lot) of post-op stories of people returning to regular routines of impact sports and, importantly in my mind, over long periods.  I'm seeing one- to three-year histories, not three to 10.

For now, I'm going to enjoy a modest diet of impact sports, on a managed basis, until I learn more...

This is my first post on this site so I'm sorry if it runs long. I had a LBHR on April 16, 2009, 4 months after having a bilateral knee replacements. My hip was a lot worse than my knees, but I needed to be able to walk to rehab the hip, so Dr Rafael Klug (Kaiser) and I decided that would be best. It took only weeks before I was out and moving easily but a year before I was back to normal energy wise. This could be because I had two major surgeries back to back.
My right hip was replaced THR in Jan 2012, now with UC Davis, Dr Paul Diceasare. My right hip is great at a bit over 1 year old. I have been very happy with the hip resurfacing, until March 2013. I found out that my LBHR will have to be revised to a total hip. My bone has opened up around the post, causing pain. I now am having Dr Pereira head of Orthopaedic Surgery at UC Davis, revise to a THR in June. I'm not looking forward to another year before I feel like riding my horses and golfing again, not to mention the weight gain. I have been working hard this last year to take off the 20 lbs I gained after the other surgeries in 2009. Wish me luck. :-[

Welcome to the site, but sorry you need to revise!

Did they tell you what caused the loosening around the post?  Keep us posted, welcome again.

I had  my hip resurfaced in August of 2011. Was back to work in 6 weeks, could have been earlier but it was my right hip and was not cleared to drive. I kept up with the rehab and have done very well. Went back to skiing last winter. I STRONGLY recommend a rigid pre-operation workout routine. As much as you can take, even if it is painful it will make the recovery much quicker and easier.  I exercised religiously every day for my whole body, you don't realize how much you need your other muscles when your hip goes down. By the way, I just turned 60. You're as old as you feel.
