As I stand today my bilateral BMHR had been a complete success – I can’t even remember how terrible my life was before I had this done 🙂 It’s over a year since I had hip no 2 done and over 18 months since the first.
I had very bad bilateral AVN and that is the reason Mr. McMinn decided I should go for the new BMHR device. I have to say I am really glad I did 🙂From my conversations with Mr. McMinn, the device was invented with AVN in mind as he was seeing young people with the problems like myself. I guess only time will tell how successful these devices will prove to be. But so far so good !
I thought that I would provide a quick update on my recent experience with my second resurfacing in California last week. I share some data points in the event that it may assist at least one person to make the right decision and get on with a productive life free from pain and disability.
– Background – 44 olds, right hip C+ Amstutz 2004, severe OA from years as world level athlete.
– Returned to high level activity after first resurfacing, including running, skiing, golf, water skiing, coaching kids sports and anything else important with no pain. At 40 years olds I was nearly not a candidate due to severe OA, bone-on-bone and cysts that required grafts and cemented stem at surgery.
– Rapid degeneration
