Jan’s Bilateral Hip Resurfacing with Dr. De Smet 2008
December 9, 2008
7 weeks post surgery (bilateral resurfacing by Koen De Smet in Ghent on October the 17th)
I started working after 4 weeks
Driving car (manual gears) after 2,5 weeks
Daily 1 hour on a home trainer with low resistance up till 6 on a scale of 8 now
I can walk nearly as normal (bye bye penguin)
Able to run distances for 30 minutes without any problems
Did some dancing for a couple of hours (fun)
Went to a rock concert 3 weeks after surgery (more fun)
Had a first medical check-up after 6 weeks, all perfect, can skip next planned visit in 3 months… in 2 years is ok to come back I’m told 🙂
Got a green light for skiing, snowboarding in Feb and preparation for running long distances, mountain biking and cycling mountains in France, Italy!
In general, I can say I feel great, I’m almost able to do all things I used to do before surgery without any pain.
Going for resurfacing seems to be 1 of the most important decisions in my life, and glad I did it …
Many thanks to Koen De Smet!
Good Luck to you all
