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.

I'm an official bi-later hippy!!
« on: July 28, 2011, 02:41:05 AM »
Howdy gang,
Dr. Gross did my 2nd cementless hip resurface this morning.  Although I had a really big cyst in the femoral head, he said he did a bone graft, and eveything came out great!! Have a bit of pain with this one (never had pain aside from muscle pain on the first), bit everyone here says that's normal, as all hips are different.  The thing I'm still trying to get my head around is that I was up doing PT and walking halls 3 hours after surgery.  Unbelieveable!!

Now comes the "hard" part - getting back to Dallas and healing up. For anyone on the fence about this, I can only recommend that you get to your Dr. of choice and git 'er done!!  I've had nothing but a great experirience with Dr. Gross and his team, as well as everyone at Providence NE hospital.  They are very friendly, helpful, and true pros.  I've been in a bunch of hospitals through my work, and this ranks at the top of my list.

Thanks again to everyone in this community sharing ing your experiences and providing such incredible support.  You all absolutely gave me the courage to do this.  Have to sign off now, but will keep you updated as I continue to move through this life changing experience.  Go Hippy's!!

Sounds like you are on the fast track!  It is awesome to hear that everything went well and you have made a fast start on your rehab.  I look forward to hearing more about how you are going!
