    Thanks @Layla, I will try to come back from time to time and say Hi to everyone. The hips are a marvel and I never cease to be thankful for living in a time when this was possible, the alternative is grim! Take care of yourself and I hope you aren't engulfed in any of the blizzard cyclone winter...

    So happy to hear about your progress @luvsibes! You've done so well! And getting off the yoga mat is huge. The fall was not a big deal other than very embarrassing trying to get out of it. Wish I could see a video of that "dance" of awkwardness! You take care also and keep moving those hips!

    Oh HI @EL11! So sorry for the slow reply, I seldom come on to check these days. By now you must be all moved in and hopefully not buried in snow drifts! Been a crazy winter everywhere it seems. Sorry about your fall but it is a bit triumphant to take that first fall and be unfazed and...

    Thanks @Layla and @Mojo333 - good to see both of you again! And yes I can imagine it even getting better! Hoping that getting up from the floor thing works itself out too... but the first hiking trips have proved very fine, I'm only avoiding unsteady slippery slopes for now, the very steep kind...

    I'm about 2 mos ahead of you on either side @Atkinson8 so I think if you just remain calm and patient - as we all heal in differing styles and timeframes - you'll be just as pleased. I keep reminding myself about the many months of just healing the tissues, muscles and nerves (oh those nerves...

    Greetings from cccold LA, thanks for checking in @Layla & @Mojo333 & @Hippielife a& @EL11 (and @Albert!) I'm thankful @Mojo333 that you and I live in different towns across the continent ...because I too have the biggest mouth on the western front! If I like a product or service I'll be talking...

    Hi @EL11! We are happy double hippys indeed! So you have the sore/numb combo platter on your hips too? "Tender thighs" sounds so much like a fast food menu item ...or romance novel prose... but it is exactly what they are! Tender and partially numb. We are in more or less the same time pocket...

    Awww thanks so much @Layla! You and @Mojo333 were my head cheerleaders throughout the whole long and precious process! And I'm forever indebted to you both. (Well, don't come asking for loads of money or anything) :heehee: I would love to be a walking billboard for THR and the miracle of pain...

    Happy New Year and happy 7 months @luvsibes and good to see you! I too have not been around much - (and I apologize for the lengthy post above, but when you drop in once a month ...there's a lot to say!) So you are only tender at the incision? I have an entire tender thigh on each side, in...

    And happy brand spanking new New Year to you too @Alitm! See above post re my Mum.... sadly there is no viable surgical solution and we have tried 47 different remedies but the best so far is the nighttime caregivers who can monitor her. She was crossing her legs in bed in her sleep which was...

    [THR] 1st Surgery has 2nd Surgery

    Thanks @Hippielife - she is doing better, has amazing bounce backiness qualities. She is 96 and no surgeon recommends her as a good candidate for surgery. Now that she has overnight supervision at her home she has far fewer dislo's but before that it was a nightmare of 4 am emergency room visits...

    A quick late night drop in to say HAPPY NEW YEAR to all my fellow bonesmartee hippys! I am in love with my twin hips!! I am finding myself in the odd position of now seeking the furthest parking spot away from whatever location I'm going to.... just to enjoy that stroll from the car to the...

    Awww, thank you Albert and @EL11! Etta is sending holiday love too and reflecting on how she misses the snow this time of the year. Being she believes she is Russian.... and Blue..... :)

    [THR] The fun part

    Awww, too bad! No more femoral heads left, there goes the moonlighting femoral ashtray business idea, I guess. I'm happy you're having such good results thus far and taking control of your RX factor. After both hips I can say the most healing thing for me was the amount of rest I could get...

    WooHoo @Bone-obo! Double Hippies Unite!! Welcome to the other side - the double dip delight side. I wish you smooth speedy and steady healing - I think by month 2 you'll be quite amazed how hip 2 is performing. But the big question is .... DID YOU GET A VIDEO of ye ole discarded femoral head? I...

    Thanks @Alitm, and best wishes to you and your family for the holidays as well, and your four legged galloping family too! I hope your husband is doing well and has scheduled his surgery? I've been unable to keep up here (or anywhere!) but hopefully around February... things should return to a...

    Hi guys! Oooh I love the festive holiday emojis everyone is using!! Great to see you @Mojo333 and @Layla! Happy Merry Ho Ho Ho to you too and hope this Christmas finds so many of our Bonesmartettes in healing mode and drifting away from pain states. It's been awhile since I've checked in and...

    Oh, it was my 2 month hipversary! You're right! Thanks @Layla! Hope you had a wonderful, peaceful, warm and tasty Thanksgiving as well. We had two dinners and both were lovely. Hips felt a bit strained by the end of the day but nothing major. A little too much standing & walking I guess. Still...

    Argh, I just found out another friend lost their house in Malibu totally burnt to the ground and I only learned of it last night. The clothes on their backs, 3 dogs, 2 kids and the computers is what they got out with and the one car. Another immediate evacuation story. All those I k ow who are...

    Roy is a cute cat name @EL11! We saw a sad post today of what looked like a baby Etta found in Malibu, looked like it could've been her daughter, so similar looking. She had that kitty frightened expression that you probably know. With the creases between the brows....worried look. You wish they...
