Mimi, 65, is married with two adult children. She works full time at the University of Southern California athletic department as a learning specialist. Mimi played golf, tennis and was a long distance runner. She first felt hip pain while training for her first LA Marathon. But it wasn’t until five years later the pain intensified. She, at first, thought it was back pain. Walking around, getting in and out of her car and caring for her two young children became difficult. After a surgeon recommended hip surgery, Mimi called her brother who had had the surgery 10 years prior. Though he warned her about the operation and recovery, Mimi knew that there had been a lot of medical advances. When she finally agreed to the surgery she saw how different her experience was from what he had described.
