    THR pikesan's recovery thread

    Quick update... I'm not even 2 months past my surgery. BOY am I impatient! I started to feel like my healing was plateau-ing? Like it wasn't continuing to get better. I think it is... just not as quickly because there's not as much healing to do. Strength is still coming back, balance is pretty...

    THR pikesan's recovery thread

    I feel like I need to give back to this forum. The support and success stories I read here, especially younger or same age folks doing MORE activities than I wanted to do. Plus, I needed to change the page in my life. 8 years of pain was enough. My surgery was on 2/4, today is 3/4. This is my...

    2019 February Valentines - Are you having hip surgery in February?

    Hey all, Pikesan here. I’m out of surgery about 4.5 days. I’m only walking with a walker but feeling better and more confident every hour I get up to walk. Other than that, I’m just resting. Any questions, please ask I’m happy to help!

    2019 February Valentines - Are you having hip surgery in February?

    I’m 49 too Hippy. You will be great. I’m up and walking with a walker since yesterday after surgery. Except for the meds making it difficult for me to empty bladder, no problems at all. Leaving the hospital soon! My son just got here to pick me up. Happy and healthy thoughts for all newly...

    2019 February Valentines - Are you having hip surgery in February?

    Can't wait for Feb! My hip must somehow know it's painful, tortuous days are numbered! It's been a real pain-in-the-hip lately! What will I be like w/o nearly constantly having hip pain on my mind!?

    THR Look mom - no more duck tape!

    Great reading! Can't wait to post about my recovery. Not sure I can match the story telling or song writing or catbox details, but I'll try! Luckily, no lengthening needed for me, so I'm hoping for a similar recovery to you - the trooper!

    THR SuperPath and Hip Dysplasia

    Hi @Mersada you're a trooper! Going it alone? I hope @SwampHiker's post helped you. I'm getting Superpath in Feb so reading how she's going up and down stairs is very encouraging! Good luck to you and I'll look for your recovery posts! (I'll also get myself some ugly house dresses... :rotfl:)

    I'm scheduled!! Feb 4th is my date with Dr. Chow. I had an awesome consultation with him. 100% confidence in him and his procedure "Superpath". Can't wait to put this pain behind me and be able to tie my shoe normally and stop limping and and and...

    Hip Problems and the Ignored Causes

    I just posted for the first time the other day... I have my first appointment to get a new hip on Jan 2019. Then I find this video... Watching, I figure I'll try as many non-surgical treatments... AGAIN until January. All the anti-inflammatory foods and juice and turmeric and all that. Why...

    I scheduled with Dr. Chow for my first appointment Jan 2019. Are you guys coming in from out of state to see him? I don't mind waiting for him if he's the man!

    Surgeon in Cork, Ireland?

    YES! Yes it does! My pain often feels more like muscle than bone but 2 doctors told me I need a new hip. I've put it off for like 7 years now, but after reading this post and others about people younger than me having great success, I'm ready to find out what pain free is like. Here's to a...

    What bearing surface are you doing and why?

    Hey all, this is my first post. I've had hip pain for years.. like more than 7? Thought I was too young to get a replacement, but I'm finally done worrying about something that MIGHT happen 15 years later (or more). That said, I'm starting to wish I was an athletic female! I'm a pretty athletic...
