Hip Resurfaced

I have been out of commission for a few days thanks to receiving a new hip Monday by way of the Hip Resurfacing procedure. Amazing technology on all fronts. I was a strong candidate for resurfacing being younger with strong bones. It appears playing way to much basketball along with some arthritis from my mother wore out my natural hips, but these chrome-cobalt ones are actually better. No more basketball but handball and golf work fine.

I will put a plug in for resurfacing, definitely explore it vs. Hip replacement. It was recently FDA approved.

PS – created this post with the iPad, had to revert back to old editor due to Flash incompatibility. Lack of Flash is definitely the biggest problem with the iPad. Have been using the iPad on and off for a day and a half and I’m at 57% charge. This heartrate monitor connector on my left pointer finger is a bit annoying as well.
