    Bilateral THR Hello from “the other side”!

    First ride on the new bike! 15 windy miles and time for a good nights sleep.

    Bilateral THR Hello from “the other side”!

    Last PT session yesterday. As a graduation present (and retirement-from-jogging present) I bought myself a nice bike. See you out there on the road!

    THR Temp disabled person placard

    You’re not going to wish that you _didn’t_ have it! Idk where you live but in California it was $6, a stamp, and some paperwork. Money well spent. Hope it’s as cost effective wherever you are.

    THR Temp disabled person placard

    I got one, it was helpful! Took a couple weeks to get it from the CA DMV in the mail tho.

    Bilateral THR Hello from “the other side”!

    6 months today! Wish I could get back up to Tahoe to play in the snow some more, but I guess we were lucky to escape after new years! LaZBoy has just been retired to the basement. 3 more PT sessions to graduation, and I’ve started working with a proper trainer to get everything else back in...

    Bilateral THR Hello from “the other side”!

    Hippy New Years Eve! Took some XC skis out for a spin today, it went great! Tired and ready for an early bedtime after some 10pm champagne :)

    Bilateral THR Hello from “the other side”!

    Merry (Early) Xmas everybody! Visiting some extended family in NYC and Manhattan this week. Spent the last 2 days tromping around Manhattan like a perfectly normal tourist! The Met, Broadway, Times Square, Chinatown, the touristy works! …and racked up 35,000 steps on my Fitbit in 2 days...

    Bilateral THR Hello from “the other side”!

    5 months today. I'd say things these days are "more normal than not". Getting those long 10k+ fitbit step days once in a while, and when I do it feels ok, maybe a bit fatigued on the R side sometimes afterwards. But nothing to keep me awake at night or merit more than an advil or two...

    Bilateral THR Hello from “the other side”!

    Not gonna lie I think I overdid it a bit on Tuesday. No pain but still a little stiff. Good day to sit around the house, stretch, eat Turkey, and watch the World Cup.

    Bilateral THR Hello from “the other side”!

    Bit over 4 months now! Been taking it easy (and working) after the big stepping weekend. Back to a more sustainable pace that’s not melting my Fitbit. We found a local neighbor on Nextdoor who’s having a THR on Dec 5 and gave her all our old stuff, toilet riser, walker, wedge pillow, the...

    > Take car. Is that advice that I shouldn’t ride my bike? :)

    Bilateral THR Hello from “the other side”!

    [spoiler: everything is fine] First scary moment - today I somehow stepped on a mysterious greasy, slippery spot in front of the fridge in my socks today and fell on my butt. As falls go it was pretty graceful (no witnesses, you'll have to take my word for it !?) and I kinda sat and rolled...

    Bilateral THR Hello from “the other side”!

    Felt pretty good, not gonna lie. The ebike is great for taking it easy on the joints. Not a lot of calories burned tho! On the plus side I can climb 250ft of altitude in 6 blocks to get home without cracking a sweat :)

    Bilateral THR Hello from “the other side”!

    Well the bike has a nice electric motor so the hills are no sweat (literally)…my only job is to not get run over by an Uber

    Bilateral THR Hello from “the other side”!

    Just rode my e-bike to work (20 hilly San Francisco minutes) for the first time post op this week. Rating: 1 Advil on a scale of 10, would ride again :)

    Bilateral THR Hello from “the other side”!

    A quick note to all the Bonesmart folks… Now that I’ve hit the 3 month mark, passed my checkin with the doc, and things are feeling pretty good, I’ll probably be checking in here on the forum less often from now on. Thanks and good health to all the other people here with me on the hip...
