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.

Got the okay to golf...
« on: March 21, 2012, 02:43:25 PM »
Went to the doctor's on Monday, and got the okay to start swing the golf club (going to start slow)...I'm so happy I'm in my 8th week of recovery and was wondering if I was going to get to golf this summer. I also got the okay to start doing step aerobics again did that this morning (starting slow on this too!) did 30 mins on a 6 inch step...it felt great! and my hip is feeling good so far it wasn't as hard as I thought it was going to be...I guess all the step ups in PT paid off...LOL.

Now I just need to see if I can canoe and kayak soon...

I'm very happy I had this done... :)

@ 8 1/2 weeks I golfed and it was fantastic.  I was only going to play 9 but felt well enough to play all 18, I won 3 greenies and the long drive of the day from my golf buddies.  That is something I never let them live down   ;D

Good luck. Hit emmm real long!

You should be very excited and you should never let them live it down for sure  :P
I'm going to start at the range next week, and see how the weather holds out here in MI and maybe get out real soon.

Congrats Zeke!  have you done real aggressive PT or just a well rounded progression?
Have fun at the range!   I sold my clubs 2 yrs ago - just didn't have time to do it all.  My other sports took priority.  But I did enjoy it the few times I went out.

Awesome stuff! Can't wait to get out on the course again. I've hit loads of balls on the range so I know I'm ready.

     I played at 6 weeks and walked the course at 8 weeks.  Was VERY surprised at how little the rotational swing bothered me.  The walking was tiring, but the golf swing was no problem, not at all bad like it was pre-op.  Being right handed, it was my back (right) hip. Don't know if it would make a difference if it was the other one.  Have fun and if you shank, blame it on the hip.

Thanks everyone ;D I can't wait to see how I hit the ball with my new hip...I'm hoping it's way better then last year. I only golfed a few times last summer, I had to quit in the fall the pain was way to much when I go off the course.

Hi Chuck We have been to Pittsburgh and it great!...we were there about 3 years ago and seen 2 Tiger games while we were there. Love the food, the bars the whole city. We are going to try and come see a Lions game next time they play the Steelers. My Lions are getting really good now!  ;)

Good for you. Everything new you do will freak you a bit the first time. It's normal until you get used to it again - you should have seen me when I decided to tackle (lightly) running down the stairs. Totally terrifying for me.
