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.

Graduated to a cane today!!
« on: September 21, 2012, 07:45:49 PM »
I'm 10 days post op. Physical therapist graduated me from a walker to a cane after putting me thru some tests. It felt so good to go up the stairs facing forward. I was proud as a peacock walking with it! When ppl

ask me how I'm doing I would always answer "Good, I'm vertical and making forward progress. How are you?"

Vertical and making forward progress again!! Woo!

Excellent hoyt! Congrats.

Vertical and making progress. I knew a lot of friends in the smoke ridden early 70's while in college who couldn't say that....  :o

You will be throwing the Cane away soon.  Keep up the P/T and listen to your body. It gets better y.
