    Any Homers with a total hip replacement???

    My osteonecrosis has progressed to the point where I need one. Having it done in Sept.

    I'm looking for info on riding afterwards, and any other info that could be helpful to my recovery and return to riding.

    TIA

    Not me but a riding crony had a hip replacement ~4 years ago (in his late40's).

    Some in the crew thought he'd be done with technical riding- wrong. He took an average amount of time to rehab and has been riding more than before the surgery. He's done some 100 mile races and we did an ~90 mile ride earlier this year...

    He regrets not getting it done sooner as he was in a lot of pain the last few years leading up to it. Hope you end up with a similar pain free result.

    It's kind of sad and scary but I wish you a speedy recovery and get back to your bike soon.
    When trails gets tougher, Just stand up and deliver.

    Thanks 6E, it would be nice to ride Moab with you again. That was fun weekend.

    Yep, good times at the THC.

    I still appreciate your technique coming down Upper Body Bag.

    Ha, Ha!! Now how did I know that would pop up again. Obviously my bad hip had something to do with my descending technique.
    (I'm trying to find my pic of you and Jay hoisting a shot in the Turner shot glasses we got that year)

    Do I redeem myself with this pic from last summer? It would be much easier to tell it's me if Jay could learn how to focus a camera!

    I wish you a speedy recovery and that all goes well. I've been told I'll be due in 10 years or so with a slowly deteriorating hip, so very interested in hearing how it works out for you.

    Good luck!

    Bad news Sworksy but a man of your quality will bounce back in no time.

    You should PM Cutthroat, I'm reliably informed that he has had every single part part of his body replaced twice and most of it still doesn't work. Maybe he's got some bits left over?

    Best wishes for a speedy recovery John. Hope all goes well and you're back on the bike even better than ever before too long. You got someone too cover your office while you're out?

    I broke my pelvis in three places once but that's easy compared to joint replacement (well it didn't feel "easy" at the time).

    My dad has had both knees replaced and is still going strong at 81. You'll be fine.

    Thanks Rob. Yes, I have coverage. Everything is in place. I plan on being out for 4 weeks. I will be making PT my full time job. I've already started hammering the Indoboard and all the post op exercises. Oh, and riding as much as possible.
