Just wanna say.....

Post by Reinyrooster » Sun Sep 29, 2019 10:55 am

So tomorrow morning I check into North York General Hospital at 6:00am and am 1st up in the assembly line to get a new hip. I guess I won't be doing the polka this year at Oktoberfest. I know that this surgery is not a big deal, and I am optimistic that I will be able to walk out to a ground blind and catch at least some of the December season.

My reason for this post is twofold:
#1 - I, probably along with a few others, will miss at least some of the season and so we will be living vicariously through you. Please remember to post a story of your harvest and pictures.
#2 - be safe. Don't go up a tree without your safety harness. Remember there is someone waiting for you back at home.

Good luck everyone! Shoot straight.

I agree with the two above posts don't rush and be sure to do all of your therapy very important. I wish you the very best as I had my hip replaced in July. I have not one regret as the hip replacement got rid of a lot of pain. Good luck God Bless and speedy recovery. Larry

I know several people who have had hip replacement surgery and everyone surgery was successful and made a difference. Get healed fast and get out there for some later season hunts!

I've know a large number if people getting it done. The first one was 38 yrs ago (my father inlaw). The hardware is getting better, procedures are getting better, the cuts are getting smaller. But mostly, people are getting back to normal faster.
Keep up with the therapy, do what your told and you'll be a pain in the butt again sooner than you think! :lol: :lol: :lol:
