The last 3 months have been tough the ache has been constant and nothing touches it so had xray done and im now down to Bone on Bone and surgery is now necessary . It is up to me as to when. To schedule it and is based. Solely on my ability to withstand pain . i am not afraid of this after surviving open heart surgery 6 yrs ago and skiing my butt off till now .
BUT iam bummed out about maybe having to give the sport up
Been very physically active all my life as matter of fact the Queen of the Hop and i were treated last week for our 50 th Wedding anniversary with a great week at our original honeymoon resort in the DACKs . Our adult children and all the grandkids treated us to the week and all came for the week and we kayaked the Fulton Chain of Lakes it was awesome
BUT was climbing stairs quite a bit and was in some nasty ache at the beginning of this week . After a couple days rest it was lessened and GO figure shot my best round of golf a 74 this week .
So lately i have been researching various forums on the topis of skiing after toal hip replacement and have found several th:eads citing people who have done so . Their is a STEEL HIP SKIERS Club near Boston founded by a dentist
SO I AM MORE MOTIVATED NOW t!! may do it this fall skip the 2016 season , rehab long and strong and come back in 2017 . When i do come back id be 73 and would have to slow it down and stay on the easy stuff BUT that is a preferable way to go since i absolutely DETEST the idea of giving this great sport up dammit !
