I have had 2 Biomet hip replacements one in October 2o10 and the other in May 2011. I have no concerns and get checked by my surgeon every 2 years. With all the hysteria on this subject I would like to here from people who have no issues for a change. I ski 20+ days a year skiing moguls, steeps and powder, hike, play tennis, and cycle 50-100 km at least twice a week. Hope to here from some people that have had no issues and encourage one another. So far the MoM was a great decision.

      I had LTHR 3 yrs. ago. I was told no waterskiing. Snow skiing is allowed. But I am now 76 so I bike and do light hiking. Just curious, how old are you? Did you have metal on metal? Eileen
