Hey there hippy people. It's been 5-1/2 months since my revision, wanted to give a quick update. Stoked is all I can say, I have no clicking or knocking, it feels butter smooth, my r.o.m. is getting better all the time and I am back to work like nothing happened. I actually have days now where I don't think about my hip ! Imagine that, it's only been about 10 years since that's happened. I had the anterior approach revision and still have some numbness on the front of my thigh and went through a few weeks where touching my thigh or even dragging my fingers across it would produce some weird electrical type sensations but other than that it's barely noticeable. Long car rides or sitting too long can still be uncomfortable but I would not call it pain by any means. I've been on some 5 mile walks with no issues, have surfed once, (I need more range of motion for going from sitting to paddling and vice versa but once I get up it's just like old times) Anyway so far having my resurfacing ripped out in favor of a short stem thr hasn't been the end of the world, more like just the opposite 8) Hope everyone is doing well !!

Good news, Some Dude. I wanted to tell you (in case I didn't mention it before): when I discovered that my HR cup placement was too steep, and before I ever posted here,  I went through and read your stuff on this site and that helped my deal with my problems. Power to the revised!

That is awesome, SD ! Always glad to have a hippy feeling right, even if the HR didn't work out.

I had some sensitivity on my leg as well, went away in due time. Keep it up!

Glad everything is going well.

Thank You for posting your story.  It is important to know revisions and THRs can also get you back to an active life without pain.

The new larger ball THRs are good solutions when you can't have or keep a hip resurfacing.

I wish you the very best and look forward to some updates in the future.

Thanks for the replies, and for the support I got from everyone in here through the whole ordeal. I really had no idea how good a hip replacement could be. My resurfacing on it's best day never felt "Normal" No wonder everyone in here is so stoked, I would have loved to have a correctly installed bhr, but it's nice to know if you don't it's really not the end of the world, a big pain in the ass no doubt, but not the end of the world by any means. Thanks again for the encouragement I got from everyone, it helped ! 8)

Some Dude you are some dude!  I'm staring down bilateral revisions of BHRS to THRs, so it's especially fantastic to see you doing so wonderfully.

Those of us taking the scenic route to recovery need inspiration like yours!  Thank you for sharing your heartening successes.
