    LoneStrHip's Recovery Thread, Aug 10, 2019
  1. LoneStrHip

    I am a Social Media nut. I enjoy most available SM outlets and have numerous accounts, Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, Snapchat, etc., sometimes to the chagrin of my 20 year old child's eyeroll.

    Yesterday I was posting of my Physical Therapy update on Instagram and used a hashtags #HipReplacement and #HipReplacementSurgery - for many who don't understand hashtags, they are simply a method to categorize a post, making it easy for others interested in the same subject to find those who have used the same hashtag. It's basically like a message board post title but it reaches a farther and wider audience. So it was with great joy that I wound up connecting with several other people who had undergone the same surgery and had accounts posting beautiful yoga poses, workout gym photos and videos and it gave me so much inspiration for what my body will be able to do once I'm healed up and the staples and bandages come off.

    As most of us on this forum, my life, physical fitness and quality of living has been less than idea for several years pre THR and now that I'm on the other side of surgery I feel I've been given a do-over, a new opportunity at life, to make of it whatever I want and I am excited for new adventures like I haven't been in quite a while.

    I started a thread in the BoneSmart Social Room so you can post your inspiration for a better life with your new joint. Please post and let us know what lifts your spirits.
