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.

One year today
« on: April 28, 2016, 08:45:19 PM »
 :) :D ;D :-* :'(

So happy with having had this done. Like most, scared beforehand. But what a year. I am so happy, I'm loving it, and could shed a tear of joy.

I'm rowing as much as I want, running a bit now too, fit, well, oh and golfing as much as I want too. And walking the dog every day. As well as career and family of course. Where previously the day after golf I was sore and it limited me, no more. So running around playing with the kids ... no problem whatsoever.

I am still aware it isn't my normal hip, but it is brilliant. It has restored me to life. I think the bit of running I'm doing though is telling me: take it easy for sake of your left hip and your two knees!

Best wishes to all. And for those who are considering it, as virtually all others will attest: talk to the surgeon, you have nothing special to fear. Time will be right when you decide: pretty unpleasant pain and life limiting, especially if it upsets your sleep, as mine did, but now doesn't!

Thanks to all the long termers, the pathfinders, and Pat for the site. Your input, support and stories were crucial in my decision, and my present happiness. Thank you.

Hippy anniversary Matt!  Glad you're feeling good again.  I sware if I didn't have this surgery, I'd probably be in a wheelchair by now.
