My name is Doug, I am 37 and my hip is done. In two weeks, I am getting a hip replacement. Technically, I am undergoing hip resurfacing surgery. But when a surgeon cuts a six inch incision into your side, dislocates your hip and installs a metal device so you can walk normally again, replacement is as good a term as any.
This blog is the story of my hip resurfacing and recovery process. I created this blog to provide updates to my family and friends. Hopefully, by sharing my experiences, I can also provide some encouragement for people who may be facing hip replacement or resurfacing surgery. I look forward to sharing a successful story.
