    Running up stairs In DC against my 14 year old son

    I didn't know that Peta took this picture until just now. But it kinda sums it all up. I'm "RUNNING" up the stairs above the US Capitol Visitor's Center in DC against my 14 year old son. THAT is why I had the surgery, that is what the surgery did for me, and this is why BoneSmart exists and...

    Stories of great hip recoveries

    Stories of amazing recoveries I just returned from seeing my surgeon for my two-year check up on a BHR on my right side. X-Rays show the cup nicely seated and everything as perfectly aligned as when I woke up in the recovery room. I've experienced no pain, no swelling, and no irritation...

    I just returned from seeing my surgeon for my two-year check up on a BHR on my right side. X-Rays show the cup nicely seated and everything as perfectly aligned as when I woke up in the recovery room. I've experienced no pain, no swelling, and no irritation of any kind short of the...

    I tripped and fell.

    I'm sorry to read about your fall, that is scary and we've all been fearful of that. But I want to assure you, a day is coming when you will not even think about your hip - Promise! It may be at 6 months, or a year out, but the day will come when someone will say to you, "how's the hip...

    A Tad Discouraged At This Stage...5.5 weeks

    1. A friend of mine who had a THR warned me to begin PT exercises BEFORE the surgery to the extent I could. I believe that helped make rehab go a little faster; but I still had struggles and a few setbacks. 2. 5.5 weeks is a VERY short period of time to expect your body to heal from all the...

    Famous People

    Looking for information about THR and revisions in the elderly, I came across this site listing celebrities who have had hip replacements: http://www.nndb.com/event/307/000111971/ Among many others, the list includes American politicians, Ronald Reagan, Barbara and George (HW) Bush...

    Revision at 89 (?)

    Thank you. That was a while ago, I hadn't heard about the Queen having the surgery. On this side of the pond, former President, George HW Bush (the elder Bush) also received a THR. News reports at the time say all went well, but watching him closely at public events well over a year after the...

    Revision at 89 (?)

    My father had his right hip replaced back in 1990 with the old style polyethylene (soft insert), he is now 89. The THR gave him some relief from pain and renewed mobility, but at a price; he threw a blood clot while still in recovery and suffered a minor stroke as a result. Scared the heck...

    39 with a new hip! Advice welcomed...

    I won't try to offer any medical advice, Jo and others are far more adept at that. But I will address your concern over the scar... I woke up with a 16" scar when expecting a 6 - 8" one. The reason as explained to me was that my muscles were strong, tight and large and that in order to get in...

    Cardiac Stress Test

    Just shy of 2 years ago I was on auto-pilot to have my right hip replaced when I was told that due to a non-symptomatic heart condition (WPW) that I've had w/o issue since birth, I had to get a Cardiologist sign off before the OS would perform the "elective" hip surgery. So I made the...

    What, a Pain in the Butt?

    One word: MASSAGE! Or maybe it was just having a pretty girl rubbing my gluts, either way it works wonders. :thmb:
