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.

Post operation activities
« on: April 01, 2008, 03:58:06 PM »
Hello all,
I am scheduled to have a resurfacing done in August with Dr Mont of Balt.  I am 46 have always been very active  running, soccer etc...
What level of activity should I expect to reach post op..?  I know all patients are different ..I would just like to get an idea of my limitations with a resurfaced hip.
Thanks Billy

Pat Walter

Hi Billy

You should not be limited at all in your activities unless you have some special problem.  Most people have hip resurfacing so they can become active again.

Here are a handful of athletes back to doing what they love  http://www.surfacehippy.info/athletes.php    and some regular people back to doing what they like too  http://www.surfacehippy.info/hipstories.php

You should probably ask your doctor what he feels would be your limitations.  That is the best way to know if something unusual exists in your hip and recovery.   The rest of us are just back to doing what we want to.
