I’m hip – or at least that’s what my checkup said.

I took my $50k-all-metallic hips in for their annual checkup which consisted of x-rays and flexion tests. All the x-rays came back fine; no movement and no separation. We checked out the ‘ratcheting’ feeling I occasionally experience in my right hip and concluded it might be scar tissue or other soft tissue – uncomfortable but not “the edge of a dislocation” as I feared. I told of my current activities of swimming, riding the exercise bike, snow shoeing, hiking and occasional volleyball (with minimal jumping) and got approval for all. Good for another 24 months!
