I created this total hip replacement website to help people that have already had total hip replacement surgery or are potential candidates to have it in the near future. I wish I would have stumbled on something like this prior to getting my surgery or even after. It is a scary surgery to have if you are not familiar with the procedure and you don’t know what to expect. I’m here to try my best to give you some hip replacement advice. The scariest part is not being sure what activities you will still be able to do and how your life will be affected post surgery. Don’t worry, everything is going to be fine, and life will be much better with your new hip. I’m here to help you get the most out of it.
My hip replacement situation was unique because I was very young when I got the surgery. I elected to undergo THR surgery at age 19 because I played baseball and had a strong desire to play professionally and make it to the major leagues. I was very motivated to further pursue my baseball career for as long as I could, so my mind was open to whatever needed to be done.
I received my total hip replacement two weeks shy of my 20th birthday and have had it for over 11 years. I am proud to say that I rehabbed my hip back to full strength, and played professional baseball for over seven years all after receiving the surgery. I continue to stay strong, young, and active and do whatever I want to do. Actually, I get younger EVEryday. It’s a choice I’ve made. And I’m pretty stoked on that choice. I want to help you be able to do the same thing. I hope this website has helpful information and gives you some positive insight. You have the power to respond to your situation and inspire those around you, don’t take it lightly. Accelerate.
