Sorry its taken a few days for a response. I think your question was accidentally overlooked. I wasn’t familiar with massage guns and had to look it up and inquire within staff about the use of one. It’s not recommended for personal use. I’d suggest you ask your surgeon if he’d recommend the use of one through a trained therapist. Hope this helps. A great week to you!
Thank you for the feedback and well wishes all, this board has been so nice to have through the process! I did speak with my surgeon on using the Theragun and he said it was perfectly safe to do, so I’ve been using it after some heavy workout and it feels good!
The worst part of the surgery is for my poor dog, she’s so exhausted all the time from all the walking we do now I love walking, going for strolls around the neighbourhood to hikes through the forest, it just feels so good.
Ive got full ROM and zero pain, still building up muscle mass a bit - by summer should be all good!
The Holidays were a bit different this year, first year without seeing extended family in person. We did a lot of zoom calls and playing games on the zoom, so we did the best we could - vaccine roll out can’t come soon enough.
The hip handles everything I’ve been throwing at it and just asks for more, feels good to feel good!
Well team it's closing in on 7 months post-op and I think about my hip exactly 0 times a week now Looking back the amount of mental energy I spent thinking about it, or the anxiety of how much it would limit me - all gone. It's amazing, I've been crushing my exercise goals and feeling great about it.
Last couple weeks I've been on the golf course / driving range, outside of frustration on my swing due to being able to rotate my hips better, it's been great! But I am sure I'll figure my swing out again in no time.
Wife and I are expecting our first child early summer, so I am super excited for that! And can't wait to play all the sports with them, and go on all the adventures. The new hip helps make it all possible!
Great news Mini congratulations, nice to hear you’re contemplating Golf ️ never mind becoming the next ( was gunna say Tiger but swerve that ) Justin Thomas.
On the sporting front ,there is nothing better than playing in a team inc you’re own sons ,which I managed on several occasions, or indeed competing against them , one of the reasons i,m holed up with a new hip
Great to hear how well you are doing. I had surgery 10 days after you and you've reminded me to post an update, as well. Isn't it glorious to be golfing without pain? I'm going to start walking nine holes next and leaving the electric cart behind for the shorter courses! Enjoy that new baby - glad this is all behind you.
How have you been going with your golf game / swing since returning? I am off for THR on my right side in three weeks and am a keen golfer. Have you noticed any change in your swing dynamics and ability to trek around the golf course?
