Severe Osteo Arthritis

Just got the great news from my xrays. Severe osteo arthritis in both hips. I hope my sportbike riding days are not over. I haven't been to the sports medicine orthopod yet but I'm guessing he's going to tell me I need my hips replaced. f##k. I guess I'll have to do my Larry Pegram impression. lol

I'm 64 no way would I take methotrexate it makes you feel horrible. Now naproxen might be a good thought.

That sucks.

Hopefully won't have to go the hip replacement path yet.

Although it might be time for a sidecar.

I like these Ural's

Hows riding with replaced hips? Did you gain more mobility.

I have a full Metal on metal hip replacement on my right side. Had it done in 2010. You'll be fine. I suggest some bar risers at the very least and maybe some lowering pegs. Without at least the risers the angle will be very rough on the joint and will put you in an awkward and uncomfortable position. You'll know what I mean after you have them done. It's borderline dangerous because you can bend more than a certain amount. A resurface would be great,a incentives you don't have those issues.
