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.

Two years, Two hips, Too good
« on: July 20, 2011, 05:03:37 PM »
 I just went for my two year check up with Dr Marchand. X-rays look excellent, no issues, no pain, 40-42 degree angle. He advised me to keep active and doing anything I want. I hike, kayak and am a serious road and off road cyclist, although I no longer compete. My occupation is also challenging. Getting two BHR's at once was easily one of the best decisions I ever made. I probably wouldn't be able to walk or work, never mind ride a bike without the surgery.

He has now done over 600 BHR's. I recommend anyone in the New England area looking for an experienced surgeon to consider Dr Marchand and South County Hospital, Rhode Island.

Thanks to Pat for the great site and fellow hippies for updates, encouragement and advice.

Time to ride!  ;)

Cheers, moe

Sounds great Moe! I'm nearing the one year anniversary on my left, so I'm taking stock now and have to agree with you, feeling pretty good.

Glad to hear you're enjoying life, really good to hear these reports from down the line.

Way to go Moe it's nice to have life back again. I also believe the more active we stay the better we will do long term.
