4 yrs ago
« on: November 09, 2012, 05:41:53 AM »
Hey all, i haven't really posted for quite awhile or even been checking the website at all lately due to time restraints however i am here to check in on my 4th anniversary of my simultaneous bi-lateral resurfacing. Yesterday the 7th was the day 4 yrs ago that my life changed radically for the better. Got rid of the pain i was living in,started living life again like a normal person would. Happy to check in and report all is well still and living a very very active life with alot of impact sports. Surfing, windsurfing, snowboarding, ice skating are a few of the things I have been able to resume. This has been a life changing surgery and in all good/great ways for me. I guess the biggest bump in the road for me was finding out that the implants I recieved were the Johnson and Johnson Depuy ASR which happen to have been recalled/stopped production because of a design flaw. I have been monitoring everything with my Doc and so far so good , everything is just fine with my implants and my body. To tell you the truth I am not even all that concerned because the problem rate is about 13 % which leaves 87 % success rate. Anyways just wanted to report that all is well after 4yrs and not slowing down a bit. I hope everyone dealing with hip issuses get them resolved and start living life again.
Pain free and loving it.

That's excellent wayne-0... I agree, even if you have the ASR, the success rate is still very high.

Great to hear, yours were some of the posts that psyched me up when I was getting ready for my first.

Thanks for the post Wayne.  I do believe you were on of the guys here when I first started looking into HR that gave me some inspiration.  Keep up the good work and keep on having fun.  I totally agree, life changing and awesome not being in pain.

That's an awesome way to look at it Wayne! I'm sure I've read that if you reach the 4 year point with no problems then you will most likey never have any issues!

Thanks for the replys all. Yeah Bill we need to get back to that routine we used to do for sure. Being able to inspire and pysch you guys up is a great feeling, i had no idea that my posts had that impact at all. I like the 87 % comment and John I got to sail San-0 today again. Looks like tomorrow the weather pattern will gives us some more good wind. Wow 2 days in a row , now thats rare. Actually I windsurfed more this yr then i surfed. Hope all is going well with you all.

Thanks for the report Wayne-O. Great to hear you're doing so much. I'm pretty sure you inspired me during some of my earlier pre-op inquiries here.
All the best.
Cheers

This is the first time I've been on here in a while. I think you had your surgery around the same time as I did. So happy to hear you are doing so well.
