5 years today!
« on: August 06, 2013, 07:30:36 PM »
Well, today is the 5 year anniversary of my hip surgery with Dr. Gross.

I celebrated it with playing 18 holes of golf, then we're headed down to the river for some water skiing.

It's funny, most days I do not even think of my operated hip, although on some cold and rainy days I do think about my hip that will probably need done in the next year or so.

All I can say is, if you are in great pain DON'T BE.  Find an experienced surgeon and get yourself out of pain.

Alright Chuck! Congrats and nice confusing mix of sports!

I just came back from a massive family reunion. Over a hundred family and some friends (we limited it), played three soccer games, tug of war, egg / spoon / mouth race, volleyball, etc.

It reminded me at the end of an exhausting and hip pain free day (sore everywhere else) why this is such a great treatment. It lets us do real family things with impunity.

Right? I was doing that without any problem at all. Just to show off I alternated sides and balanced a bit before fully sitting.

Thanks all.

At this point, I do believe that if your installation angles are correct I think we will all take our devices till the end. 

My only good joint is my operated joint at this point.  Wish they all felt like my right hip does.

Chuck,

Congratulations! I hope we all experience the same success you have.

Maybe I'll run into you when we have our other hips done by Dr. Gross. Stranger things have happened.

A late Happy Anniversary.  5 years!  Great.

Thanks for all the help you have given to this discussion groups and individual folks in the group.  I know you have helped many people along the way.

Enjoy that hip for many, many years!
