Good for you! Hope it continues to improve so you'll be able to carry on riding as much as you like.

I'm on the west coast and keep promising myself a ride over to the east coast one day.

I spent a month in hospital in an orthopaedic ward back in the Eighties where the surgeons performed two hip joint replacements a week. It was really good to see patients that had been in constant pain for maybe years, coming and getting the operation and then with the help of the nurses and physiotherapists going up and down the ward on crutches getting used to their new hip.

With that pain taken away it made them happier, they looked younger, and it was a pleasure to see how the new hip joint transformed their lives.

Welcome back. Smile

Good on you. My girl friend had hip replacement 4 months ago and she is running on the treadmill once again.

My wife has had two knees and one hip replaced and is very happy she did it. She's very active and now I have a bit of trouble keeping up with her. She says she feels like she's ten years younger now.
