Climbing to the top of press boxes is no longer a problem for this New Jersey native.
“I speak from experience that the hospitals in New York could learn a thing or two from Stoughton Hospital.”
“Well, it has been almost 6 months since I had my hip resurfacing and thought I’d give you an update. I have had absolutely no pain in my hip. Every once in a while, when I am driving, I have a little discomfort where the incision is. Seems the edge of the bucket seat is right where the scar is. At about 4 months I had the feeling that I had swelling on the side of my leg by the incision. It usually happened after I over did either working or exercising. But that feeling is gone now. It took quite a while for me to get over having to hold onto the railing when walking down stairs. Now I have no problems.
As far as my work is concerned, I started filming football games back in August. Since then I have climbed up on the roofs of 37 press boxes to film the games (see the enclosed pictures). I have had no problems hiking up press box ladders carrying camera bags and tripods.
My wife, Rita, and I are walking between 2 to 4 miles whenever possible and hope to take advantage of seeing all the fall colors.
It’s amazing how many people out here on the East coast have never heard of hip resurfacing. I am trying to remedy that.
Thanks again to Dr. Rogerson, his team and all the people at StoughtonHospital and HipHab who made it possible for me to continue doing all the things I love to do.”- Ed
