2 years !!
« on: August 03, 2015, 06:39:55 PM »
Hello hippies, long time no speak!!

I'm just popping in as I promised I would do. Saturday marks my 2 year anniversary of my RTHR. Wow, what a 2 years it's been!!!  ;D

I've spent all winter living in the French Alps skiing, hiking and mountain biking everyday. The last year has been fantastic and I am so grateful that I am living the life I want, without being restricted by pain and misery. I can't say it's been perfect as my leg does still get tired after walking distances because I am still struggling to fire my glutes up properly, but it's been ..... almost perfect! I have realized that I have to take care of my hip. That physio / strengthening / stretching and generally looking after it will be something I have to do for life, just to get the most out of my hip and avoid injury. It's a good job I'm not lazy! I've taken up pilates which I think is helping lots!

I wish I could say that I am doing something awesome this weekend to celebrate my hips birthday but unfortunately I am now back on crutches. I have had an op (A PAO) on my left hip recently in the hope that it will fix my dysplasia or prolong the life of my hip. Fingers crossed for a speedy recovery hey?!!

Also, happy anniversary to my hippy friend and fellow Yorkie Mike D!! I haven't forgotten, we share the same day (Although a year ahead!) I hope you are doing well and I hope to see an update on here soon  ;)

Thanks to everyone on here for your continued support and I hope you all have many pain free years ahead of you,

RTHR - 08/08/2013 -Mr johan witt, London

Hi Anna, great to read that you're  back doing what you love doing. The stuff you're  doing is so encouraging to  anyone who  can't  have HR.
Like you, my THR changed my life from  pain and misery to total freedom. It was over 2 years before I didn't  think about my hip at some point every day but i can't tell one side from the other now and I'm also back doing stuff I had to give up.
Keep up the good work, Anna- great to hear you doing so well.
