Five Years
« on: February 01, 2015, 07:08:02 PM »
Hi There,
Friday marked the 5th year anniversary of my hip resurface. My hip continues to feel excellent and I can't remember if I posted this previously but in October I completed my first sprint triathlon (an experiment!). Now 62 I'm currently training to complete more sprint tri's in the new season. I never thought this would be possible as old friends might remember that 2 years after my resurface, my hip was so good that I returned to all sport, but while playing squash, ruptured my left Achilles tendon, suffered a deep wound infection which necessitated 7 surgeries over a year (along with months of IV antibiotics) to clear the infection and reconstruct a tendon using scar tissue. Luckily my hip didn't get infected and remained strong throughout. So the limitation to my performance is a weakened ankle not hip. So I feel very fortunate and I take this opportunity to thank Pat and the many other surface hippies who were incredibly helpful 7 years ago when I found the site and the support I received after my new hip.
