Surfacehippy | Hip Resurfacing Alternative to Total Hip ReplacementPosted on by Patricia Walter
I am 6-weeks Post-Op after having my “other” (Left) Hip Resurfaced!
I figured no better way to test my newly resurfaced (15-month old) Right Hip, than to have the Left Hip done! And wow, what a test. 6-weeks of 100% weight on the Right Hip, and not a single twinge, tingle, stab, jolt, throb, pinch, burn, or shooting pain! I’m convinced the Right Hip has met the test!
To the date of my recent Left Resurfacing, I was so pleased with the results of my Right Hip procedure, that there was no hesitation or consideration given when I was told “it’s time” to have the Left Hip done.
I guess I can say the only draw-back to having my Right Hip done 6 April 2010, was that during that recovery period and “transfer of weight” during my rehab, it rapidly increased the level of deterioration in my other (Left) Hip. Well, no problem with that now!
So, I guess it’s time to ‘‘update’ your Age Chart! I’m now a 2-fer!
Looking forward to making the most of BOTH of them!
