Good Morning, I am 57 years old and on my fifth week of recovery from total hip replacement, and am amazed at how well I am told i am doing. PT is so rewarding after two years of constant pain, I have had the greatest results with the best care from everybody. My experience has been awesome, I recommend surgery with total hip replacement to all those that need it. I waited two years, which only complicated my surgery, but I really would appreciate any information from people that have started riding their motorcycles after similar surgery. It is tough to get a real time frame, since most medical people associated with my care are not riders. I have read stories of small scooter riders and trikes, but I really would appreciate hearing from people who have years of riding experience, some whom have went back to riding their motorcycle, Thanks God Bless Be safe alwaysView Thread
Good afternoon, Have been their a time or two myself, I wish you good luck with the surgery, waiting is never a good thing. Having put off surgery my self, I wish now after my surgery that I would have done it two years ago. Two hours after surgery I was walking the hall ways, granted, I had a walker, but it was pain free. I was still on medication, but I knew that it was better than ever, since even on medication I still used two canes to arrive the day of my surgery. Now five weeks later, 38 lbs lighter, I am doing PT three times a week and walking two miles or more for the other three days a week. Have total faith, prayer and prepare your mind for an awesome surgery and recovery with full restoration. Keep me posted, God Bless. Be Safe Always Jr.View Thread
