Several months ago I was on a tour with a fellow who had two knee replacements. Although I admired him for his resolve to continue his "sport", I wondered whether it was prudent to continue such a high risk activity.
Now, I am faced with a similar problem. In the near future I will need a hip replacement. I have talked to people who have had this procedeure done and have gotten mixed opinions about how fragile these things are. Some say a minor parking lot tumble could undo everything, some say that is not the case.
I know this is a personal decision, but I would like to hear some other opinions. Maybe someone out there is dealing with this now or perhaps a MD might have some imput.
I've been involved with motorcycles for about 30 years now. My wife and I enjoy long range motorcycle tours and vacations. I'm not looking forward to a lifetime of golf and gardening, not just yet anyway.
