My BHR was done 7/10 at Piedmont Hospital in Atlanta by Dr. Stephen Smith.
Guess that makes me about 9 days post-op. I am 62 years old and over the past
twelve years have completed about 65 triathlons and various other running events
including marathons. Most have been sprints but but several olympic distance, 6
half-ironman and 2 ironman races. Guess that is why my hip wore out!! I have
every intention of doing 65 more races.
I have not had much pain and have been walking (at home only) without my
crutches since leaving the hospital. I have started some short 15-20 minute
walks but with my crutches but plan to walk tomorrow without.
