Back and stronger

I got my left hip replaced Monday, three nights in the hospital and returned from Valley Medical Center in Renton today. They gave me excellent care. This surgeon's reputation is so good that the nurses told us they get patients who are orthopedic surgeons. When they need hip replacement they go to Renton to Dr. William Barrett instead of going to their own partners!! Due to a complication from last spring's broken pelvis and its healing I am only 50% weight bearing on the left and using crutches for 4 to 6 weeks. Everyone else goes straight to full weight bearing. I have been on crutches before. No problem. And 50% is a lot easier than no weight (or "toe-touch") like I was before. See Broken Pelvis.

Man, I hope you'll recover soon. Never in my dreams I imagine my hip gets replaced.

Despite the surgery, incision and all, I won't believe my hip was replaced until I see the xray. It's just amazing.

It seems that one of the main problems with joint replacements is wear of the bearing surfaces of components
