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.

Mine is Dr Gross's norm of 4". Don't know how he gets his hands in there, but it seems to work for him.

Mr B, you must be feeling better if you can worry about the scars.  My right side is fading so fast I could only measure 4 inches of it.  My left is 7 inches but it was hard to measure.  I think they were around 8 inches but I wouldn't care if they were from my thigh to the middle of my back, my hips feel great.  I ran four miles this morning and then spent the rest of the day going up and down the ladder putting the cedar siding on my house.

Don't worry Mr B,  you'll be feeling this good soon.

I'm starting to feel really good. Still have lots of clunking going on... but then again I haven't been extremely diligent with my PT. I'm happy that I'm able to do most of the things I want to do on my own again. I can't wait till I'm back to normal and doing everything I want to do without the pain I've felt for almost a decade. The discomfort I've been in the last few weeks is nothing compared to the daily discomfort I've experienced post op with strenuous activity. I've had the " light at the end of the tunnel moment " a lot of us describe during our recovery and I can't wait to reach it.

Mr. Box - just keep up the enjoying. The clunking stayed on for me in diminishing amounts until about seven months went by.

Not so it sounded like Monty Python and the Holy Grail knights, but so I noticed. I still notice slight shifting after a hard workout, but nothing I think about.

Pat has a Poll on scar length and clunking in the polls section.  You can find lots of stats on this there.

Both of mine are about 6 or so inches.  Surprisingly they are fading.  Next Summer I'll be able to wear the Speedo like I own the beach.    ::)

Mine is just under 4" (Dr. Gross), but the 100-watt complexion of my butt cheek makes "fading" seem unlikely.

Haven't measured mine but it goes from top left of my right buttock round to the right side of my thigh. Pretty big but who cares? The new scar is fantastic compared to the ones from when I was 6 and 8 years old they are really thick and still very obvious, not sure if that is because they are scar on scar though.

I'm going to draw one on my ass with a marker pen so I don't feel left out. For the record, I'm gonna make it 8 inches  ;D

I got the missus to take a photo and posted it in the gallery. I was shocked at how good it looked compared to my old Perthes scars. Don't spend much time looking at my own butt.
