Nine year checkin (almost nine, at least)
« on: June 21, 2019, 05:51:01 PM »
Went in to check my left knee with the surgeon (turned out to be a deep contusion of the tibia head, just a couple of months of downshifting activity).

But I figured I'd check the hips as well, for my (almost) nine year anniversary.

The hips looked great, had blood work done for Cobalt (I guess they just track that now in that office), it came back at 1.0 with both hips.

So the progression has gone :  First test - Chromium 3.4, Cobalt 3.1, After four years - Chromium 1.7, Cobalt 1.1 and now after nine years - Cobalt 1.0
Having both hips done and the bar being to stay under 7, it is very good news.

I understand that some of us have challenges after the surgery, all the way up to revisions, but my hopes are that all of you have happy and successful outcomes.

Thanks again to Pat for her tireless work for us and my best wishes for all hippies, new and well seasoned.

Congratulations hernanu.
Pleased to hear the hips are good.
You're 2 years ahead of me and my THR and you, Dannywayoflife and i think John C, gave me some very good advice at the time.
It's great to get experienced advice when a looming hip operation seems such a daunting thing.
Cheers Mike

Thanks for giving us an update.  I am glad you are doing well.  It is always nice to know that people are active and out of pain with THRs.  Especially when a great surgeon places them.
I wish you the very best and many more years of activity.
Hope you stop by again in the future.

Thanks Pat, the hips feel fine and functional. No complaints at all.  I hope you're doing well.

Knee is fine, was just an extremely deep contusion of the tibia at the head.  Hope everything is good with you.
