Surgery in 8 Days
« on: April 12, 2011, 07:09:59 AM »
I will have my hip resurfaced at Lille's Hospital (France) soon. Thanks to the valuable information on this forum and good communication with my surgeon, I stay cool and confident. I do not know how many members on this his forum had surgery in France, but I will stay tuned.

You will do great!  Just take it slow.  I'm 11 days post-op and each day is a little better.  Keep us informed on how it goes.

Good Luck with your upcoming surgery.  I don't know of any surgeons in France doing hip resurfacing.  I hope you will write a little story and include the name of your surgeon for future people to learn from.  As long as your surgeon is use to doing hip resurfacing, you will do great. 

Keep in touch and I know you will have a great summer this year with your new hip.

Thanks to all of you for these positive comments.

@pat: Of course, I will take some time to write a few lines about my coming hip resurfacing. There are really a few surgeons able to perform resurfacing in this country, since THP is the most common way to solve OA. 
I asked my surgeon (Prof.  Migaud) about what approach and HR device will be used and he answered quickly, with very clear explanations.

I found that when the doctor gave me clear reasons it made me feel much better.  As an engineer I need the logic behind the why.  Good look and let us know how it goes

Phillwad,

We are wired in the same way. I am an engineer too and I also need the "logic behind the why". One of the first thing I did before looking for a surgeon is to get familiar with approach, acetabulum, MoM, THR and so on.... Of course we are not experts, but it could help for a better communication and understanding.

It seems like there is a very high percentage of engineers opting for this procedure.

Just had mine done April 5th.  Was also a bit nerrrrrvous leading up to the procedure as well.  All normal I think.
All went well with my RBHR.  Its 6 days post op and on 1 crutch since day 4. 
I like to think in terms of where I will be in a month...2 months..etc.
Just keep a positive attitude and don't be too hurried afterwards.  PT is going well and at this point seems to aimed at re-engaging those muscles that have been traumatized.

Good Luck and think positively.  Soon enough you will be saying to yourself  "  I wish I had done it sooner "

As a Production Engineer, Loughborough University - UK, and a Welding Engineer (think joining stuff together more than metal to metal welding), The Ohio State University - USA, I am interested in how the bone joins to the metal part and how the metal parts are made.  My Doctor (Dr Brooks Cleveland Clinic) was able to talk my "stuff" and we talked materials; materials choices; surface finish; advantages and disadvantages; wear (how much and why); - it was a good "techy talk" - which really put me at ease.  It also helped it was called "Birmingham" - helps a Brit stay a Brit  ;D

Hi Lori.36

My doctor is Professor Migaud, one of the very few surgeons in France that has a strong experience in hip resurfacing. He did (and does) a lot of research about hip and knee reconstruction and revision of infected prosthesis.
I immediately got a great confidence when I met him for the fist time, two years ago. This was not the case for others surgeons I met before, because they were more focused on THP as the common standard.
In addition to this, he gave me very clear answers to my need of "knowing the logic behind the why".
I have stopped Karate due to high pain/stiffness in my hip and I would like to come back in 12 months after surgery.

To be continued.....
