When you are fully recovered, your hips will no longer feel different. They will just feel like your hips. There will also come a time when inclines and uneven terrain are no more challenging than they are for anyone else. I've hiked in Yosemite and Yellowstone (among many other places) with no difficulty. I also know of someone who summited Mt. Everest on an artificial hip.I also find it challenging to walk inclines, and uneven turf. It's much easier to stay on the smooth, level sidewalks. I wonder if we'll always feel this way? I imagine that we'll not even think about it at some point - we'll just get used to the 'different' feeling so it's not feeling different anymore.
