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.

Celebrated my 8 years on my Left BHR by riding 350 miles on my bicycle.  Rode from Pittsburgh, PA to D.C. in 6 days on the Greater Allegheny Trail and the C & O Trail.  I also have a BHR on my right side which is 3-1/2 years old.

Both hips felt great and preformed well.  My only pain was the blisters on my butt.

It is very important in the long run to keep your weight down, keep stretching and keep exercising. If I let any of these go I will start limping again, not from pain but from habit.
