Orthopedics/life after hip replacement


Jerry Flanagan wrote at 2013-06-21 00:33:21
I had a hip replacement almost two years ago.  Being an avid runner, I went against the advice of my doctor and immediately resumed my running.  After only three months, I ran a half-marathon and posted an excellent time for my age (73).  I continue to train and race with absolutely no complications.

I'm due to have bilateral hip replacements and was wondering if i will be safe to go kite surfing and still do some crossfit? I know I will have to give up a lot but still would like to engage in fun activities.

I had my first set of bi-lateral hips put in at the age of 16. I am now 50. I have had to have my legs virtually reconstructed each time I have had the surgery. I know first hand how this surgery can affect all facets of homelife, career, child bearing, and physical appearance.
