    Milwaukee Radio Guy Checks In

    Howdy....

    Just found the forum. Avid road rider for a few years now here in Milwaukee after a tennis injury forced me to get total hip replacement surgery at 44. That's how I discovered road riding, as part of my therpy. Now I'm hooked. Going on 2,400 miles this summer.

    My web log gives daily updates:

    Looking forward to making a daily check of the forum.

    Hipcycler, I too am new to this forum. I came here looking for folks like you who ride after undergoing hip replacement. I think I am about 3 months away from same.

    Some questions for you:
    When was your replacement?
    Was it a standard incision or minimal incision?
    What prosthetic was used -- cobalt tipped steel and highly cross-linked polyethylene or other?
    Probably not cemented, right?
    What has your orthopedist advised regarding riding?
