November 27, 2017 Checking in for my eighth anniversary of my hip resurfacing of my second hip, my first one’s anniversary was August 24th).
My hips are now and have been for a long time feeling perfect. I’m grateful for the new life this has given me and the opportunities to both take up old joys and to explore new ones.
I want to thank Pat in particular for providing this wonderful site to people who are seeking and in need. I also want to let the hippies who advised and encouraged me when I first joined, it is a particular kind of relief to find that you are not alone.
There is a truly great benefit from this surgery. It may not be perfect, but it has been so far for me. I’ll be checking in next year with my surgeon to have my metal levels tested, but they came out well a few years ago, so I am hopeful that it will continue.
To all of those considering this surgery, it is not perfect but gives you a very good shot at being rid of pain and back into life.
