April 22, 2011 I waited a full 12 months to get this surgery ( I live
in Canada, free medical care but longer wait times ). In that wait
period, I lost considerable muscle in my left leg, developed a horrible
limp due to an impingment and walked incorrectly for that time. From my
original diagnosis, I went from anti inflamatories infrequently to being
unable to walk any distance in a short time. My wife was away working
for about six weeks and when she returned she couldn’t believe how much I
deteriorated in that time.
For me, I had gained 25 extra pounds over a two year span and I
wanted most of that gone before surgery. I lost 23 pounds in about 8
weeks using a high protein, super low carb diet supplemented with light
weights and the rowing machine 3 times per week. Trust me, the key was
the diet as the weight melted off in a short time. Since the new hip, I
have lost 6lbs more as now I walk outside and cycle daily at the gym.
Google Protein Power and you will find the basics of this diet that
worked really well for me. I have the Adept from Finsbury.
Today, I can walk unassisted for 25 to 30 minutes well but have a
long way to go to regain my prior health. In saying that, the positive
changes happen so fast!! I wish I could have had the surgery before the
limp took control of my life.
