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.

Bi-Lat 15 Weeks Post Op
« on: June 29, 2007, 11:08:12 AM »
Hello Pat.

Here is alittle update regarding my recovery. 15 weeks post-op
Bilat.  BHR I competed in a 25 mile bike race. I felt  good during and
after. I have been surfing small waves and taken some wipe outs without
detectable problems. I have hiked 3-4 miles on moderate terrain and also
felt good during and after. I am back to work as an RN. I am still working
on developing a smoother walking style. I walked with such an abnormal style
for so many years that I must need to retrain all those muscle groups. The
hip pain/tightness went on for approx. 13 years before it ended with the
surg. I still feel at risk if I was to take a fall or if I overdue activity.
I am off all pain medication since the surgery. I take an aspirin every few
days to help improve blood flow and relieve occasional groin tightness.
Overall I would say my range of motion is quite a bit better than before the
surg. and I think I can still make alot more improvement over the next year
or so. I do physical therapy each day and think that will always be an
important part of long term hip health. Stretching and strength work is
important for anyone that wants to maintain or improve there  level of
fitness. I hope this gives some helpful info. for anyone that is considering
BHR or THR. Dr. Raphael Klug from Roseville,Calif. performed the operation
Febuary 24, 2007. He is a highly skilled surgeon and equal in his bedside
manner. thank you for creating such a fabulous site for all of us with hip
problems.  --Farley

Hi Farley

I am glad you are doing so well.  I imagine that you were not sure how this
was all going to end up 15 weeks ago, but you are very happy now.  I hope it
just keeps getting better for you.

I will post your update on my website.  I know it will help other people.

Good Luck and enjoy the summer with your 2 new BHRs!
