My upcoming hip replacement…
Date of Surgery: 5/11/21
What: Right anterior hip replacement
Surgeon: Dr. John Garcia in Sante Fe, NM
Why: I've had some sharp pains as a child and into my teens and as an adult. Just over 4 years ago while walking my dog Keeta, she took off to the right of me and caught me off guard. My right hip went into relative internal rotation and I felt a very sudden and sharp pop with pain. The pain said at a high intensity for several months. It did calm down a bit so I did have a few months within the first year that were not that bad. Over the last two years though, my ability to do things I enjoy have slowly eroded. In the last year, even basic ADL's such as standing and walking have become problematic. Even sleeping is painful most nights and I have more bad days vs good days. The time has come to get my life back. I'd like to be able to:
Teach 3d Yoga again
I can still deep squat ass to grass and I hope to maintain that!
Im hoping to monitor my progress and keep you all posted during my rehab!
