"Walking My Daughter Down the Wedding Aisle"

Life before hip replacement was lonely and painful. I was very active with, running, racket ball, weightlifting, and walking with my wife. I was taking Motrin to beat the pain. I forced myself to stay active until it got the better of me. I stopped everything, I stopped "living it up", I stopped sleeping, therefore it affected my relationship with my family and friends. I suffered for two years before deciding to go ahead with surgery.

The deciding point came when my daughter told me she was getting married. I wanted to be able to walk her down the aisle without limping plus have a normal Father/Daughter wedding dance. At that point I had 18 months to get the surgery done and recover.

It's the greatest feeling to walk your daughter down the aisle for her wedding day and do it pain free. I had a beautiful wedding dance with my daughter. I now am able to walk, lift weights, ride a bike and work a job with out having to medicate before and after doing those things.

Do it for your family and friends.
