I put together a short video showing me before and after my hip resurfacing. I wanted to share it with you.
I am two years post op TOMORROW. My hip is wonderful and not a day goes by that I don't think about how great it is to be pain-free! Before my surgery, I could barely tie my own shoes and had constant pain 24 hours a day!
I was taking anti-inflammatory medication non-stop, to keep the pain manageable. I was only 38 years old and had three small children. I couldn't play any sports with my kids, the pain was too much.
Being in constant pain was ruining my quality of life. Even when I went to bed at night, my hip would throb and make me miserable. I knew I had to do something and sought out a surgeon - and I am so glad I found Dr. Gross!
Now my hip is pain-free. Even though it doesn't hurt, I still think about it every day, though! Every time I put on my shoes in the morning I think about the "old" me and really appreciate what Dr. Gross and Lee Webb did for me!
I have been so active since my surgery it is wonderful. I have been jogging, bike riding, weight lifting, and even playing basketball!
Thank you for giving me my life back!
Please feel free to use this video on your website or in any fashion you want. I made this video when I was about 8 months post op. I'm now two years post op and feel even better!
