I am almost exactly two years out on my right hip resurface and one year out on the left and all is beyond well!
Running regularly; I did a 6.4 mile leg of a marathon relay 2 weeks ago (somehow got all the hills, even though I was the oldest on the team … hmmm) and did that in 55 minutes with no issues except pouring rain Felt great.
Just returned from 10 days on the East Coast visiting a friend and getting a serious horse tuneup; I hadn’t taken professional lessons in years and desperately needed some tweaking after the last few years of bad hips and post-op rehab. I rode every day at least two different horses, flat work, stadium jumping, cross-country jumping to 3′ and dressage work with NO issues, even with a very exuberant 17 hand Thoroughbred throwing in a buck / spook as we landed after a big brush jump. Lost a stirrup, laughed like crazy and never slowed down. I did not tell the trainer until the last day I was riding on rebuilt hips and she was shocked! It felt amazing to be able to ride the way I used to.
Still doing the occasional cold laser treatment on the scars, which look and feel great. I’m also still doing a lot of cross-training, which I think at my age (52) should just be a fact of life from here on out.
As always I hope everyone is doing well and if I can answer any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask. I can’t say enough about the procedure and Dr. Gross and his staff.
