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.

5 Year Anniversary of BHR March 15, 2011
« on: March 21, 2011, 09:47:22 PM »
I just had my 5 year anniversary of my BHR with Dr. De Smet in Belgium on March 15, 2006.  My hip is doing great.  It has never given me any problems and I can do anything my body is capable of at 66!  I was 61 when I had my BHR. 

Hip Resurfacing is still an option for women.  Don't let any less experinced surgeon convience you it is not.  Every experienced hip resurfacing surgeon looks at each person, male or female, as an individual.  They look at your bone density and determine if you are a candidate.  They don't go by negative press articles and the many problems the less expeirnced surgeons had.  Resurfacing is a diffuclt surgery and not every orthopedic surgeon is capable of doing the surgery.  Often, if they don't have the skill, they tend to bad mouth hip resurfacing and always suggest THRs.  Hip Resurfacing is still a great solution for hip problems.  Stick with the top surgeons and you will find out if you are a good candidate by them reading your x-rays, not by reading negative articles.

Happy anniversary Pat. More than anything, this web site helped me along my way to two successful hip resurfacing procedures. I'm really happy you're doing so well and so far along.

Good Job Pat -

If it wasn't for your hip, we might not be here learning, and supporting each other, and doing all these great things on this website.

Thanks

Pat,

Wunnerful, ain't it?  I will be 5 years out on 4/17.  Something those who aren't so far out probably don't realize that there comes a point when instead of feeling this or that twinge or whatever from the surgery and implant, you have to make a conscious effort to feel anything unnatural at all.  For me it took about 3 years to hit that mark, and even then would occasionally get hit with this or that sensation that reminded me that I had had the surgery, but for the last 2 years I haven't had any of those reminders.

Congratulations Pat!  ;D

In many ways... I owe my new life to you and the SurfaceHippy website.  It's a great learning and research tool that you've made available to the world.  I REALLY do appreciate it... more than you will ever know perhaps.  SurfaceHippy made it possible for me to find the perfect solution for my very painful hip and to find a very experienced and highly skilled surgeon. 

I give you my very heartfelt THANK YOU!  ;D
