I apologize for not updating on my anniversary date. I guess I am having to much fun since my left hip was resurfaced 4/2016. I truly am grateful for the many people on this site, and for Dr. Gross for putting me back together Steve Austin style. “We can rebuild him”
My hip has treated me very well. I hope it continues this path !!!
Best decision ever!
I am back to doing everything that I was doing before.
I got my life back!!!
The wealth of information and support from this site is second to none.…
Yesterday marked the seven year anniversary for my second hip resurfacing. I’m partially retired now. Living in Colorado allows me to do something outdoors almost every day. My recovery was very methodical, so it took me some time to regain the activities I enjoyed before OA slowed me down. I bike a lot, hike in the mountains, lift weights, have a SUP and just this year returned to skiing, which for some reason I was afraid to do in prior years. I don’t ski very well, but I do get down the mountain. My hips are fine now. I’ve taken a couple of falls off of my mountain bike that scared me, but the hips were fine.
I don’t believe that my hips limit me in any way now. That’s quite remarkable when I think back to how crippled I was prior to my surgeries.

“I had the resurfacing because I was too young to have a replacement. A lot of retired ballerinas have [hip replacements] but they usually wait until they are in their 60s, not 40s. I just think, look, how lucky are we that we can have titanium put in our bodies and it do wonders,” she says.
…The Ducks said the surgery was performed May 9 by Dr. Edwin Su in New York. The procedure is less invasive than a full hip replacement and does allow for the possibility for the 34-year old Kesler to resume his career following a lengthy recovery…

After reviewing thousands of case studies going back 25 years across six countries, researchers at the University of Bristol say they indicate that eight out of 10 total knee replacements (TKRs) and six out of 10 total hip replacements (THEs) will still be in place after 25 years.
