« on: September 09, 2013, 08:18:44 AM »
Just returned from 70k ride .hip sore as.telephoned the surgeon to confirm appointment. Questions to ask from this forum and a few more loaded on the iPad. I now know the dr is free the 22nd and 29th of November so come Thursday I should have a few answers. This forum has been a godsend. Full of inspiring stories as well as a wealth of info.:).i hope this surgeon has got his act together lol

Good luck. Ask about his number of HRs, how many per week, recovery protocol and percentage of revisions.

Thanks.. I'm pretty sure he has done 300 Hip resurfacings with 3 revisions. He comes highly recommended from my GP . Here in Australia not the numbers of operations performed overseas. I also live about an hour from Melbourne. ive got a full list of questions and if any doubts will seek the advice of another surgeon from Mwlbourne. This op  can't come around soon enough.
