Hi all, I had THR posterior on May 28. This is my first recovery post. I have been reading all the threads attentively and learned a lot. Most of my questions about recovery issues have been answered by reading others' threads. But I do have a concern. Prior to my hip issues (fracture with pinning Dec. 2016, AVN leading to THR), I used to commute to work on a bike. This is one of the joys of my life. I'm not one of those speedy lycra-wearing folks. I'm the grey-haired woman with one pantleg rolled up that everyone passes. Biking is not only fun and healthy, but with the traffic around here it is sometimes the most efficient means of transportation! Trouble is that riding in the Boston / Cambridge area is somewhat risky even with bike lanes. It is highly likely that at some point over the course of years some car will "door" you or you will have some other mishap. Is a femur with a prosthetic implant more likely to shatter (in general) than a natural one? I also have been diagnosed with osteoperosis. So it is most likely that wisdom would say I should put the bike away to avoid an accident. But I hate to do that. Are there other urban bike commuters out there (or anyone else) who have thoughts on this? I have not gotten on my bike yet. Still too soon for that. But I am thinking ahead about what this will mean for the future. For now am enjoying walks around the park with my cane.
