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.

5/3 month checkup - cleared to proceed with life
« on: June 02, 2015, 07:38:18 PM »
Had an appointment with Dr Pritchett, 5 months since right BHR and 3 months since left.  He told me I could start light running and he'd like to see me again in a year or so.  :)  8)

Also, I hiked up a local "mountain" on Saturday with my daughter (3.1 miles, 800' climb) and rototilled/raked/planted a vegetable garden all day Sunday with no trouble in the hips, just lots of muscle soreness and a bit of an aching back.  I've definitely still got plenty of additional healing to do, especially on the left side, and I'm still not over the moon with the appearance of the left prosthetic, but I'm excited as all hell to back doing the things I could not do last year, and to have permission to ramp up my activities as tolerated.  I feel like I've graduated hip school!  8)

Thanks everyone, the information and support here has been really helpful,

That's great - keep up the good work, I noticed improvements into the second year.
