I had my left hip BHR resurfaced on 20th Nov 2000 by Mr D Mcminn and was working again , landscaping and race driving 3 months later. It’s brilliant and has kept my right hip going much longer than seemed possible ie. 13 yrs , but it now really badly needs doing. I can’t walk far , say half a mile max with a stick plus a lot of pain through my hip/knee and leg. My question to any surgeon willing to reply is ———– Can this be done on the NHS as I’m no longer in … Read the rest

25 Year Update – November 4, 2016
I only post now and then with updates and this one is over due. I am very pleased to report that i celebrated 25 years of my resurfaced hip in September.
I thought earlier this year that I might have a problem as I was having lots of pain in my hip and pelvis. I had x-rays and scans at the Royal Orthopaedic Hospital in Birmingham and they showed my implant was very much ok. Turns out it was my back causing the pain and after several weeks of physio I’m back to … Read the rest

I had so much energy that I had a late career change, went to drama school and trained as an actor. Worked at that for about nine years. Now mainly retired (though … Read the rest
