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.

One Year Post-op Left BHR Dr. Andy Engh
« on: November 09, 2011, 05:06:35 PM »
I had a left BHR on November 11, 2010 with Dr. Andy Engh. I was 48 (almost 49) years old at the time. I am a small boned female and I was bone on bone arthritis with AVN and several cysts, including one large one.

I just had my one year post-op appointment with my surgeon. The x-rays (taken from several different angles) looked fantastic! Everything looks good...I go back in a year and then if things still look good, I go back in 5 years. He wrote a prescription for a metallosis test to get baseline numbers but just to serve as a baseline for the future...no problems that he could see.

I have had no pain (except for the post-op surgical pain) since the surgery and no limp. My ROM has come back and I feel better than I have in years. Running feels fantastic! I am a triathlete and he cleared me to go back to racing the long distance races I love!

I turn 50 on November 25th and I have to say it will be the best birthday I have had in 3 or 4 years because I feel so great! I truly feel like I was given my life back. Those who have been through this surgery know what I am talking about. I think people can see it in my face...no more pain!! I think I am just a happier person these days and a much better Mom to my two boys and wife to my husband.

Just had to share my success story. Can't wait to get back racing....I think it will be like when I first started...very fun!!

I know - I'm trying to keep it on the down low, seeing as I'm so shy  ::).

Last time I asked for stomach bumps, simple cheers and lifting of glasses will do this time.

Hey Jume, Im so happy you are doing so well!! Happy bday in advance. Im on my 7th month and doing well. teaching classes but not running yet. I see the doc in december and he said we will talk about running then. ( I have 1 year restriction).

Congrats on one year!  I can't wait until I am there because it will mean that I will have been running for almost six months.  My hip was my 50th birthday present.  The most expensive and best present I have ever received.

Keep us posted.
