A word of encouragement to recent THR veterans: I had anterior approach replacement of my right hip year ago at age 72 and have made a 95% recovery.

I play golf and/ or tennis six days a week, and this summer I bicycled 180 miles through Belgium and The Netherlands.

I also play trumpet in a dance band am able to stand through two hour-long sets.

I describe my recovery as 95% because my hip is occasionally stiff and sore - especially after golf and tennis on the same day - so I'm working two days a week with a trainer to get the muscles and tendons around my hip back in shape.

Bottom line: movement is medicine!
