Re: Hip Replacement

I had my hip replaced in January 2008. It was very unpleasant for a couple weeks and was much better within a month of surgery. I was able to get the boat ready for the water in April and I was sailing later that month. Each of us has differing healing rates and resumption of regular activities. Mine was complicated by the fact it was brought about by a severe car wreck and it was a small portion of my total injuries. Thank God for modern medicine.

Re: Hip Replacement

thank you, Jim
My schedule seems quite similar, I will have surgery end of January and hope to be back sailing this spring.
Noticed you sail a Cape Dory too, have a MarkII 30, 1987.

Re: Hip Replacement

My ex was a physiotherapist. She reckoned that recovery from procedures like that depended almost entirely on how much the patient actually did the regular exercises that they were shown how to do. Many don't. Many take a long time to recover. They tend to be the same ones...

Re: Hip Replacement

Recovery varies from person to person and hip to hip. Number one hip for me was miserable and I had problems much longer than average. Hip two I was good to go in a couple of weeks.

In theory as of my writing, you should have had your hip replaced and well on the way to recovery.

Re: Hip Replacement

Eating whole plants (exclusively: avoiding animal products and processed foods) also helps recovery greatly, and lowers overall inflammation markers in your body. Check out THE GAME CHANGERS documentary on Netflix it's about recovery and athletic performance. (Also helps avoid "E.D.")

Hi rsn48

you are right today exactly 4 weeks, tomorrow more likely last PT session!!
thanks for asking
been walking and doing some work out in the gym, easy without overloading or excessive weight/resistance.
Started to feel more positive and less depressed, looks like it might save the season!!!

Re: Hip Replacement

I was snowboarding through the trees 9 months after left hip replacement. Sailing is way, way easier on hips. Everyone heals differently but do your exercises. Losing weight does wonders for lower joints.
