When I asked what kind of prosthesis I would receive, I was answered: "we will decide after having exposed the bone to sight ...".
What if the dealership is closed ..?

Better than OEM.

Good luck with the warranty work tomorrow, Attila. I hope it all goes well for you, and make sure they use the red springs, no point spending extra on the chrome.

You have my best wishes and prayers.....let us know how it goes.

The reason I am Vespa shopping is my left hip gets done Monday the 22nd. I don't know if I will be able to ride my sport MC (Duc and MG). (certainly not for a while)...Vespa looks a lot more user friendly.

Take it from someone who knows吋ake the pain meds as long as you absolutely need them and do PT as soon as your doctor allows you to, and you'll be better in no time. Six weeks out from a complete shoulder replacement and I was already riding again. Feel better!

Can't speak for the PT after hip replacement but while doing my PT for rotator cuff repair got to see more than my share of those recovering from knee replacements. Sure did not look or sound fun!

Made me feel a little guilty being there for PT. Especially the part where the therapist takes your arm and does the stretching exercises twisting my arm around to check range of motion. I think I screwed that up as the young lady doing it stopped that after a few sessions saying I was already at the point they shoot for at the end of PT not the first few weeks. Or maybe she thought I was enjoying it too much!

The easy bit is now over! To be fair the recovery will be much faster that you're now thinking. In a couple of weeks you'll feel much better. It's hard slog but well worth it in the end.
