Mimi was able to go to Hawaii after six weeks post surgery. After eight weeks, she went back to work full-time. She tired more easily than she expected but she pushed through and felt better. Five years after her first surgery, Mimi felt the same kind of pain in her other hip. When her doctor recommended surgery again, Mimi immediately agreed. She did the exact same recovery routine as with her first surgery. Mimi has returned to the active lifestyle she had before her surgeries, although running is not part of her exercise regimen anymore She is very glad she headed off having chronic pain with her second surgery. Mimi wants people considering the operation to know that having the surgery sooner than later is, in her opinion, better since you can—after you recover—get your life back.
