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.

First tennis post-op
« on: March 02, 2014, 05:53:17 PM »
Yesterday I played my first tennis since surgery almost five months ago.

I suppose I stopped playing about five weeks before surgery, once the pain outweighed the pleasure, so that's about six months since I previously played.

In the few days before I had hit a few balls with friends a couple of times, but this time I went to my club's mix-in session. I am very aware of the need to avoid falls and therefore did not chase anything crazy and played within my abilities.

It felt great. The joy of moving without pain! And the sheer pleasure of hitting the ball again.

Great to hear that.  I too played tennis for the first time at about 10 months.  Had to quit tennis because it was too painful so this was the first time playing in a few years.  No problems with the hip.  Did not play well probably because I did not play in a long time.  The second time was much better.  It felt great to hit balls and run again.  Feel confident I can play now with the BHR and can start enjoying tennis again.
