Gonna see if they'll let me keep the part they cut off.
Tip off (literally) scheduled for 9:30am this Tuesday morning.
I'm curious how long it took you to get to this point. My docs have been doing "let's try this, let's try that" for 3-4 months - shots, PT, more shots, on and on. At what point do they say, "let's schedule the surgery."?
Good luck, keep us informed.
Good luck Son. 👍
Best of luck and smooth sailing.
Had close friends done the same procedure and he was up and walking in the hallway ( with assistance ) the very next day.
Good for you, Landon. I'm looking at the same procedure in April. Let us know how it goes. Everyone tells me they don't know why they waited so long to do it. Part of me is nervous about doing it, but I know life will be better after it's done.
Good wishes Nephew! Keep us posted on your recovery! 460cc?
Good luck Landon. BTW, is that cast or forged?
Rickochet Good luck Landon. BTW, is that cast or forged?
Good luck Landon!!!!! (We need dancing banana's!!!)
The ball in my new shoulder is titanium, as is the appliance in my left knee. Not sure if it is cast or forged.
I have a couple of the titanium rod and screws in my body. They won't bother me until the weather changed.
Especially before the thunder storm.... man they will be sore and itchy.
sdandrea1 What's the COR on those things?
LB, heal well, heal fast.
Hopefully his insurance is good or it could be a pigs hip!😁
Good luck LB!!! Wishing you the best!
Knowing him, might be an OX bone graft if needed, but it'll be a simple straight forward surgery.
BTW, I'm guessing the titanium parts will be precision CNC milled, not forged nor cast.
Good luck with this one...
Good luck buddy.
I wish the hell I was your PT my friend. I see you are having the anterior approach. The least invasive procedure with less precautions. If you are a fast track patient you may be getting up the same day as your surgery. My patients all do so well with it, and I certainly hope you do.
Two guys in our Quota Group who have recently had the anterior (front side) approach. One was playing golf 6 weeks later and the other guy who lives off the 2nd tee box came out this morning as our group was teeing off on the 2nd hole and said he was going to see the doctor this week to get clearance to start playing golf again.
This Thursday will be 5 weeks since he had the procedure.
On the flip side play with another guy who had the posterior (rear side) approach and he was out a few months before being able to play golf. Front side entry seems to be much less invasive and therefore a shorter recovery time.
