some confidence to get the procedure done. I wish I had gotten it done a year
earlier, because it made me totally born again hard! I remodel kitchens for a
living. Before the surgery, I was basically done working at 2 p.m. because the
Lortab would wear off and the pain would get debilitating. I didn’t want to take
more than one Lortab per day because of fear of getting addicted. I only … Read the rest

am on a cane. I am moving about although still with a limp which will last for a

I had a hip resurfaced in 2006. I am a competitive (old fart category)
swimmer. I had a good postop recovery and rehab and was active again fairly
quickly. I have been pleasantly surprised that the strength and flexibility of
my operated hip has continued to improve with PT/exercise even 2 years plus post
surgery. PT and patience.
My surgeon was Mr. Vickers, who coincidentally did the Queen Mum’s hips
with SMA. I expect to be going back to KE7 to have my other half done, but as my
surgeon has retired I will be with someone … Read the rest
