Success and Pain free
« on: February 07, 2011, 08:39:41 AM »
First I want to thank everyone for taking the time and sharing their experiences as well as their stories.  Without them I am not sure I would have made the right decision.  I started using surface hippy 4 months ago as a research tool after having severe groin pain which was shortly diagnosed to my doctors amazement as I am only 43 years old as degenerative bone disease..  After several cortizone shots with short lived results (2 weeks relief) I decided enough was enough and that there had to be something that could be done without all of the limitations of a THR.  I am an avid outdoorsman and like to run and workout with my faimily.  My wife is a physical therapist and was the one to recommended this site as several of her patients had utilized it for one thing or another.  Well after all of the research, I found the BHR system to be the best possible solution for my age and level of activity.  After finding a surgeon Dr. Mark Anderson Green Bay WI, (Go Pack Go) that had at least 100 surgeries using the BHR system and was close to my home I made the appointment to discuss my options.  Dr. Anderson agreed I was a great candidate for the BHR system and we scheduled my surgery for 1/31/2011. The emotional roller coaster that followed has been well documented by just about everyone who has posted on this site so I wont go into any details of my own except to say I shared each and everyone of them...    My surgery went extremely well with limited pain and up walking with crutches 1 day post op.  It is 2/7/2011 6 days post op and I can say, I feel amazing.  I am full weight bearing, no crutches, no pain and no pain medications....  Everyday that passes I get more strength back and am able to do a little bit more and still no pain.... 3 months ago if you asked if I would ever run or hunt again I would probably have said No.  Now I see a Bellen health run and hunting trip in my near future.  Thank you again for helping me take back my life...
