Left THA means total hip replacement of the left hip. I had that in November 2006. Today, at my 50th high school reunion festivities, I ran into another woman from my high school class, also named Francine, who also had a left THA. We compared notes and both agreed that the surgery had been fabulous for us. Like me, she had been a yoga practitioner. Like me, she's back in yoga.
Her recovery was remarkable, she said. And she told me she had read my blog, but that it was no longer available. So it reminded me to update it so Google would take another look at it.
I went to the Bronx High School of Science, and this weekend I'm walking all over Manhattan with my customary sprightly gait. No problems.
