I wanted to let all of you know that I had my hip resurfacing operation on Sept 7 and all is well. It was done by Dr Frank Smith at the Henderson hospital in Hamilton Ontario. They perform 2800 joint replacements there a year. With $10k of new hardware in my hip they sent me home after 4 days and yesterday I was able to go for an hour long walk, with crutches for support. It will take 12 weeks for the recovery to reach the 80% mark and I can return to work then, about 12 months to reach 100%.
This Link was important to me in finding out what I needed to know.
I wanted to thank a few people here for their kind support on the forum and via email, your words and expressed support means a lot to me. I still have some ways to go, but I feel that I am getting great care with physio and nurses visiting me at home. The 23 staples come out this Friday, next week I will be receiving my physio in hospital.
Most of all, the pain is gone!!
I highly recommend the resurfacing process if you are considering a hip replacement......it's a blessing.
