Eighteen years old
« on: November 11, 2017, 10:10:50 AM »
it is the eighteenth anniversary of my right side BHR being implanted. It has been well used, is still playing tennis several times a week and has improved my quality of life beyond measure.
The left side one was four years last month - also doing fine.

I post this because I guess it is one of the oldest that are mentioned here and I hope it will encourage people that their hip resurfacing really can last. I remember hoping to get fifteen years or so out of it. Now hoping it will last as long as I do!
