"I'm Right on Target to Regain My Strength"

My discomfort was increasing and my flexibility was decreasing, affecting my mobility. Any pressure to the hip was felt. I had to quit running, during which I was working hard to do what I could with other activities. 

Deterioration of my hip continued, I felt it evident with my actions. The turning point was comparing x-rays which confirmed degradation; putting me on the replacement research path and ultimately the surgery. I searched for a doctor/hospital who I felt would be the best to get me back to doing what I enjoy. Therefore, I developed a list of questions about the implant. 

It's been eleven weeks and I'm right on target to regain my strength and ability. I describe myself as an athlete, I run, ride, swim and compete. I'll be competing this season starting with the shorter distances. 

Having to wait can be turned into an opportunity to prepare yourself.
