First anniversary (First of many!)
« on: November 19, 2015, 10:54:35 AM »
Yesterday my BHR hip had its first birthday. Everything has gone really well in the last year, bar one minor overuse setback at 6 weeks, and my metal hip now out-performs the natural one in all respects.
I have kept a log of how much walking/running/biking/climbing I have done and the current totals stand at 1074 miles on foot and 702 miles by bike. This includes about 40 5km races, 1 10km race and a half-marathon training run. Longest walk 21 miles around the Peak District, biggest hill Ben Nevis. Other hip will need attention eventually but has held up quite well so far, hope it lasts another year but would love to get the BHR benefit sooner rather than later (assuming the process went as well, which is not guaranteed of course).
Thanks to Pat for this site, which I only found whilst in hospital, and to all my current and prospective hippy friends for their company, wisdom and encouragement!
