    My friend is getting a total hip replacement and she is 37 now. How long is the recovery process and will she be as good as new? She normally exercises a lot and is active so I want to see her get back to that lifestyle and with no more pain. Right now she can hardly walk at all. What should she expect?

    I would like to see a full investigative series on the Charnley Long-Term Results;

    Including x-rays.

    I like that x-ray.

    I like the orientation – of the cup.

    Small diameter head (risks known); and i wonder of the lesser trochanter; and symettry.

    Perhaps even a mispell.

    I think it lasted 20 years;

    Perhaps an osteoporotic or necrotic effect upon the greater trochanter ……..

    Nonetheless – the surgical technique is poetic.
