I use a bike route daily that encompasses coast road/path and old railway lines. On 12 Jan it was below 0c. I turned out of railway path onto short pavement section and it was half inch thick black ice. I had no chance, was wearing lycra shorts.
The new hip is settling in OK, still stiff still on moderate painkillers. Got home today. It is an Exeter hip, not titanium, since I am 65. But my mother is 94, and longevity runs in the family.
Should I push for a titanium now, or wait until the present one wears out? My thinking is it takes a year to get back to where you were, and I'd only use one year of my life up with the longer lasting titanium model.

G'day Rodin.

Ahhh bugger. My condolences mate. If I could change what happened in any way I would.

When I was a child (4 years old) I was diagnosed with Perthes, right hip. By 16 I was informed that the degeneration in the hip was equivalent to an 80 year old. I was warned that if I kept playing sport and doing a lot of the other things I did that I would end up in a wheelchair by the mid 30's. Instead, I broke the back and crushed the central nervous system at 30. I didn't let on to doctors the full extent of what happened (how do you explain a NDE to doctors?) and was diagnosed with ancolising (sp?) spondolytis among other things, and was told that it would be likely that I would be wheelchair bound within 5-10 years and then bedridden soon after.

I state this so you know that I recognise how debilitating a hip condition can be and my heart goes out to you mate. :thumbup:

I would never suggest going down the route of a hip replacement. Everything can be healed. For me it is 18 years now and though I still have chronic physical pain, I am very close to having healed this physicality.

Still, once you have it done, no real chance of going back eh.

I suggest that you do whatever it takes to give your physicality some relief, whether that be a new titanium hip or anything else. The hips and shoulders are the two horizontal planes in the skeletal structure, as above so below, as below so above. Tilt one and the other mirrors the tilt. There is an awesome book, Pain Free, by Peter Egoscue, that explains this all very well and I highly recommend it (there are some youtube videos about the Egoscue method as well).

If you've weighed up the pros and cons and are comfortable with going titanium, then go for it. It is your physicality, your choice. Do what is beneficial for you. :thumbup:

Whatever choice you do make, may it be of benefit for you.

I had no choice. My hip is replaced, the Royal Infirmary said the fracture was too bad to attempt a repair and they would not do it. I knew it was gone when my knee didn't sit right. Apparently my left leg was 2" shorter for a time :umm:

Was wondering where you got to mate. My condolences also and may you get back to being as you were asap. I dont know what you went through to have the hip replacement but if the process isnt as bad as the rehabilitation and you can get the ti it might be the way to go. Perhaps try ask others or dig around online for opinions from those whove been through it and had the non ti for a while?
I remember the good old days, when 90+ year olds in nursing homes lived forever. Darn this pesky virus.

G'day Rodin.

Sometimes it goes that way and it is tough. Two inches is a lot. I've had one and a half inch difference since childhood and can guarantee you that for any extended period of time, two inches would have completely fucked your spine up. In turn, that would have compromised the integrity of the central nervous system and messed with the functionality of the body as a whole.

One thing doctors are good for is putting things back together after a major accident. Not much else really. In fact, I have read online that the treatment they gave me as a child is now considered barbaric. What can yo do eh??? :dunno:

Moringa has 36 different anti inflammatory compounds in it and is something that started using a number of years ago now. It helped me to get more than 2-4 hours sleep a night, which obviously helps with the healing process. This is where I get it from online ...

There are other benefits and the link gives you the low down on it. :thumbup:

Two inches was temporary lol tendons pulling in detached leg. Walking wounded now, prog is for 95% recovery or more, prob is I am active and fit and will wear this new hip out IMO. I would not wear out a tit hip. Yep, got research to do.

edit

A lot seems to hinge on how good the surgery was. Time will tell, but right now no unexpected probs. Pain receding per diem, mobility increasing. Apart from protecting the injury, posture appears to be OK.

It's not 'if' we come off our bikes it's 'when'.
Sorry to hear of your prang Rodin and wishing you a speedy , full recovery.
64 here and when pedalling uphill got to be too much I switched to an electric ( pedelec) bike.
Miss the old road bike but never regretted switching cos I can still get out on the bike.

Nasty injury that. Get well soon. I used to cycle a fair bit (rode in the masters Mountain bike series), still do a bit, though not on the competitive circuit. I've been hit off the bike a number of times over the years on the road (usually some idiot opening the car door on the road side without looking) never broken anything though. I'm still young enough to bounce when hitting the road. :P

Tarmac is no problem so long as you don't mind keep buying lycra kit.
Tarmac does tend to shred lycra ( and knees, hips n elbows).

That all depends on how you land, and if some of the fall is cushioned/broken by sliding. I would much rather come off on ice than a grit road if my arse was sliding along the road just wearing a pair of shorts while doing 30 mph. :hahano:

Road bikes are the thing now. Not keen on the riding position myself though, not great for the lower back either. You want something with a more upright riding position, such as a hybrid. Those racing slicks also slide about easier on a slippery surface. A hybrid with semi-slicks is the way to go for the road imo.
