I envy you guys whose hip replacements have gone smoothly. I don't even dare try throwing my leg over the saddle for fear of having my leg become disjointed.

I guess a better call some riding buddies up to see if they'll come exercise the steeds. No point in letting the cobwebs build up on them.

Thanks for the good wishes.
Had hip revision surgery done on 12/31 (got a shot of morphine at midnight to celebrate the new year). For whatever reason, the artificial socket installed back in August had become detached from the pelvis. I now have new hardware and have have my fingers crossed that I'm all done with this hip surgery shite; three surgeries in six months is enough for me.

Hope to get back on a bike in 5 or 6 months give or take.
