There's not much doubt my best skiing is behind me, not so sure if it's worth it especially since I need to get the other hip done eventually too. We'll see.

    Just kidding, N. is determined to keep the place.
    Hope skiing brings you joy again soon Iceman.

    I know a snowboarder that would ski with you. He happens to have an affinity for the green.

    IMHO: Shoulder surgery hurts way more than the hip.

    Hips are no big deal. Left hip anterior approach 2/13/2013.
    Probably 500+ days skiing since then, over 400 in just the last three.
    I just avoid hard bumps.

    Walking in the pool and doing a lot of ROM movements helped me the most.

    FWIW

    Total shoulder regarded as most painful surgery.

    People often say hip hurts less post op than the preop hip pain.

    100% true. Within a couple of weeks, less than pre-op.

    Curious if you got any skiing in this year before the shit hit the fan. I took a bicycle spill last Labor Day and had total hip replacement (posterior) the next day. Just a few weeks before my brother had offered to pay for a trip to Colorado to ride for my 60th. He lives in Austin and would drive with a couple of road bikes. When i fell i thought the trip was off, but I never canceled my flight.

    I was able to walk with a walker the next day and then without a walker 2 days later. I had a couple of in-house rehabs and then a couple at a rehab place. Once i got on the bike at a rehab place it felt really good and I thought i had a chance for the trip. Rehab lady laughed when i told her and then I checked with my doc who also thought i was nuts.

    Long story short I went on the trip 5 weeks after surgery and had a great time. Rode to the top of Vail pass from Frisco day 1, and lesser rides for the next 2 days. I had no stamina but otherwise my hip was not that sore. I got about a dozen ski days in this season and after the initial fear of falling the first couple of days it was not a big deal. I'm sure I'm not the skier that most on here are, so it's not like I'm killing the mountain, but i was pretty close to where i was previously.

    I did a bit of indoor cycle classes and I agree with Mazderati on pool time. I never liked swimming indoors, but i forced myself to get into it and was swimming 2500 meters a few times a week and that really felt good and loosened things up. I had gotten a spring pass at Killington and was curious to see how it held up in soft bumps, but....

    I'm sure you'll be out there next year if you don't kill yourself by then.
    Heal fast.
