My New Hips

An image of my six week post-op X-ray.

On May 5, 2015 I had anterior bilateral total hip replacement surgery (yes both hips!), and I am happy to report that the surgery went well!

As you can see from the image, I am almost like the bionic man now!

I have been walking up to three miles at a time, and I have even been able to do some light hiking! I am getting around without a cane for the first time since December, and compared to before the surgery my pain level is almost nothing.

Today I went for a two mile walk without using my trekking poles, which I have been using on my longer walks, and I feel great!

Of course this surgery wasn’t cheap, and while I have insurance, it doesn’t begin to cover all the costs, if you would like to help out just click the box below! I thank all who have donated so far, and I thank you in advance!
