John Bohlman's Hip Replacement Surgery

John Bohlman underwent hip replacement surgery at UW Hospital and Clinics. Here's his story.

 

Go ahead and get it done! Don't waste any more time!

 

You've been in pain for a while now, haven't you?

 

You think that you'll never be able to do some of the things you love to do, don't you?

 

I was in pain, too. I thought I would never be able to go packpacking again. When I got the diagnosis of arthritis in my hip, I was very dismayed.

 

But I did the physical therapy, then I got the surgery and then I did the physical therapy again.

 

Six months later I was cross-country skiing again, and a year later here I am on the side of Mount Hood, with other peaks of the Cascades off in the distance.
