I have had both hips BHR, my left in 2000 and my right 7 wks. ago. I am an ex national standard triathlete now working as fulltime swimming coach. I returned to a very active lifestyle after my first BHR running daily. I returned to work at 3 wks. This time and have just started to do a little running while walking my Labrador.
Both my operations were done under our wonderful NHS service. The surgeons name is Mr Kevin O’Dwyer. My operation in 2000 was his third BHR and he has done hundreds more before doing my second one on 19th December.
