    THR March 28th Surgery - Now playing Racquetball!

    Just a quick update: 15 Months out now from total hip replacement on the right hip. Huge improvement over pre-surgery status. Have a bit of intermittent pain walking sometimes, but it is not to bad. Pretty much doing everything I was doing before hip got bad. Back to playing racquetball at...

    March 28th Surgery - Now playing Racquetball!

    I am a couple of days shy of 6 months after right hip replacement. Anterior replacement in Arlington Va late March 2018. Surgery @ 8 AM cleared for discharge at 1 PM! I was very lucky and have had a very quick recovery. Never used a walker at all and a cane for only 4 or 5 days. Before...

    @Bone-obo don't think you can't play again! I play with several guys in their low 60's who are really good at racquetball! For me the more active I am the better. Good luck!!

    THR March 28th Surgery - Now playing Racquetball!

    One day shy of 3 months today! New hip is awesome. Just a tad sore in the morning as is just about everything at 53 and the day after 2 hours of racquetball yesterday. Pretty much do not even think that I am playing on replacement hip now. Starting to get some quickness and stamina back...

    I've got to get well: 34-year-old mother of four.

    You are young and I assume active if you have 4 kids! I would expect you will bounce back very quickly! I only had right hip replacement. At 54 I was very active before surgery, playing racquetball up until 2 weeks before surgery. I was extremely motivated as I wanted to get back to living...

    THR March 28th Surgery - Now playing Racquetball!

    So far so good on a quick recovery! 6 weeks out from THR I returned to racquetball. First couple of times playing was a little rough after 8 weeks of no cardio! Had quite a bit of soreness but most was muscle soreness due to lack of activity. No real hip pain. I usually play twice a week...

    THR March 28th surgery - Quick Recovery!

    Pre-surgery I played racquetball(twice a week) up until 2 weeks before surgery! Pain level was getting quite high while playing and was really bad for two days after playing. Playing racquetball almost until surgery I think aided my quick recovery. I was in pretty good shape with very good...
