Been there done that 1

6 years ago I had both hips redone 1 (Can't believe I waited) Before the replacement I was using 2 canes and painpills. 1st one done Feb 5th, second one March 25th. 12 weeks later I hiked to the top of Mt Mitchel. 6 months later I hiked 25 miles with 50 lbs pack on the AT. 2 years ago I started riding motorcycle again (after 28 years down time). I would recommend it to anybody that is in need of replacement. Just remember to keep up your exercises and stretches !!
Good luck to you all !

Floyd Landis had a hip replacement due to necrosis. He's riding in pro bicycle races again now.

To be technical, he had a resurfacing. Same procedure I had. Mine was due to osteoarthritis rather than osteonecrosis though.

Rate the pain killers.

1) Dilaudid /hydromorphone - numero uno, given the chance I could easily become addicted to this stuff.

2) OxyContin - Two a day help keep the pain away.

3) Percocet/Oxycodone - a couple every four hours or so seem to take the edge off.

4) Advil 200 milligram gel caps - "Vitamin A", taken 5 at time they do a damn good job for an OTC product. Remember to take the Pepcid Complete so you don't burn a hole in your stomach.

5) Morphine Drip - are you sure this shit isn't saline solution. I can't push the button fast enough.

6) Vicodin - What the f_ck. St Joseph baby asperine does a better job.than this crap.

I believe the Birmingham procedure is a resurfacing operation. A number of ADV members have had resurfacing procedures done and I believe most if not all of them are very happy with the results.

I'm sure somebody will chime in and advise you of what activities you will be able to partake in a after a resurfacing.

I have and use a TENS unit. It gives short term pain relief.

I can do anything that I could before being injured. I work in a tire shop, which sees me lifting earthmover tires and wheels that weigh as much as 700 pounds, and I've not had a single issue with the new hip.
Riding is vastly improved as well, and I can now stand on the pegs all day if I wish, again with no issues.
Life truly is good.

I'm surfing all the time. I got back in the water 3 weeks after surgery so I could paddle and get some exercise. I stood up 2 months to the day of my surgery. A couple months after that I was skiing......

Had 4 month follow up yesterday. Got permission to lose the brace, but got a no go on riding the bikes. Have to cancel riding trip to NC in June. Will reevaluate in 3 months. This sucks.
