September 13, 2018 – I’m happy to report that I LOVE my new hip. I had follow-up xrays which shoed everything looking good, and my non-op hip in perfect shape, as well.
Last year I decided to try racing (I’ve been rowing for 9 years, but not racing, and the pain was unbearable by the end). I’m happy to report that at the end of this month I am going to FISA Worlds in Florida to race SIX times in three days. Kind of crazy.
I still have trouble with my glute medius, which has been down and out for over a decade, but with PT, strength training, and dry needling, it’s coming back. That piece just takes time.
So happy I had this surgery, and so grateful for Pat and the people on this site who gave me so much valuable information.
