A whisker under 5 weeks and have today been discharged by my brilliant surgeon. Told me restart biking and did 9 wonderful, pain free, smooth-as-you-like biking miles tonight. Bloody awesome. I'll update again when it gets nearer to skiing time next season.
Move along, nothing to see here Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

Wow time flies - faster recovery than me doing slightly stupid to myself. Good work.

@Frosty the Snowman, Does the other one need doing? Must admit I'm a few years behind you but have already been told one hip is more arthritic than the other.

@boredsurfin, it does, but I reckon it's 5-6 years away. The left knee is very much nearer than that though Evil or Very Mad

Frosty the Snowman, My dear departed Dad had both knees done, one of which had given him pain for 30 odd years, he always said that the replacement knee was the best bit of engineering he had ever been involved in. He even went to the extent of leaving his knee to the manufacturer for research! (He left his entire body to medical research.)

It is a tad over 9 months now and after fabulous few months of Mountainbiking (on my E-MTB) I am now only 3 months away from my ski trip, after a 6 year gap. It is only now that I can realise how the hip has affected me over the years. Back in 2008 I missed all but the first day of the EOSB due to a SI joint/back problem, which was undoubtedly caused by my arthritic hip. With hindsight, there is so much that has happened that can be put down to the knackered hip.

March 10th sees 18 of a specially chosen "crew", including both Frostlets and their partners, heading to Flachau, to a House that seems very well placed, if a little basic https://www.muehllehen.com It is all about ME snowHead but it will also be the first time the 4 of us have been away together since our last ski together.

Like Schuss in Boots I am VERY nervous about the skiing - The knees have gone downhill since the last holiday, but the overall fitness and strength is now much better, and with the aid of my Mojo, I am confident all will be well. I am ridiculously excited. More to follow rolling eyes

@Frosty the Snowman, Great news about the skiing holiday and you’ve done all the hard work, so no reason to believe that you won’t thoroughly enjoy it. snowHead I’ll probably be in the area then, so would love to meet up for a celebratory beer.

@Frosty the Snowman, that's brilliant. Mrs NBT resumed skiing March last year after time out following an unfortunate accident which resulted in a hip replacement: it was as though she'd never had time off skis, loved every second of it, and was so keen that we booked a cheeky second week

I'm sure your experience will be fabulous, enjoy every second of it.

@Frosty the Snowman, I've skied 4 times now and I still get a little nervous at the beginning but it soon goes. The surgeon said to me (when he cleared me to ski)... 'just a little, max 2hrs at a time and ski normally DO NOT SKI WITH YOUR HEAD!!!' Laughing I know exactly what he meant, I battle with my head in the hour before I get up to the top of that first run.. and sometimes for the first 100m, but he's right. It's a whole lot easier once you let your head go and your legs take over. wink As you know, I skied with a brace on for the first 3 times, that was a prop for my 'head' and it did work, really helped. Ditched it half way through the 3rd time and I ski without it now, just an elasticated knee support, so let your mojo take the strain on your knees... and your head. wink You'll be fine - I know you will.... you're made of strong stuff my friend. Very Happy snowHead snowHead xx

@Frosty the Snowman, High Five.
So pleased that you are able to ski again and mtbike.
I was warned off mtbing by the surgeon and a physio. However the need to cycle was too great. Still very cautious but enjoying getting out on my mtbike when I can.
More importantly it gets me fit for the ski season. I know what you mean about leaving your head behind.
The trick is to realise what your capabilities are and stay within them. But that doesn't mean to say you can't push yourself a little further everyday.

Very Happy

I'm sure you'll be fine mate. I had my left hip replaced at the end of October last year and went to Tignes in March. The only thing I would warn you about is getting tired. It can apply to anyone like, but tiredness = potential mistakes.

@Mrs NBT, i'm trying hard not to fall off the bike. We are X Country bikers really, but do throw in the odd trail park.

@Thesixquidman, Great to hear stories of success. Cheers.
