  1. You are ready to talk to TWO orthopedic surgeons. Get a second opinion at a tertiary care/university hospital. Let us know how it goes. CFS
  2. Knit, yes, but those are not the Leafs' current socks. Probable practice-associated uniform deviation. Andersen has not played an NHL game in those socks.
  3. Have your parents dress you in the minivan. 🙃
  4. Hi goalers: Hope everybody is staying safe. Bumping this topic. I had right total hip arthroplasty, anterior approach, on March 5, 2020 (just under the COVID-19 wire). Surgery went great. Feels fantastic. Unfortunately, my plan to hit the gym hard postoperatively was derailed by the pandemic (apologies, 1st world problems, I know). I'm hoping to skate 6 months postop, pandemic permitting. I appreciate everyone's input last autumn. Any updates or guidance are always appreciated. @Gregory Lee @Wonder35 @bc30
  5. Yes, Piney. Currently not at Laurel.
  6. Thanks for the shout out @BadAngle41 Great looking design!
  7. Sorry @SaveByRichter35. Didn't intend to distress you. It's not inevitable for all of us. I have FAI which predisposes to early osteoarthritis/degenerative hip disease and, as I mentioned, I have a lot of mileage/impact on these hips (...and, still, my knees are fine). Furthermore, I can remember having hip pain as early as high school (1978-82). Hopefully, you will not suffer my/our fate. But, the science/technology is improving yearly. One of my best friends (a defenseman, which I think we can all agree is a different animal) is also back playing after total hip replacement. Enjoy, c
  8. @BadAngle41 Thanks for sharing. Wishing you continued good health. Hope you get to play with your kids. I will keep everyone here informed.
  9. @Wonder35 Wow! Knee and hip! All the best. Your 2007-2018 history is a beacon of hope to me and for all of our aging goaler brethren. Thank you for sharing your experience.
  10. @Gregory Lee Thanks for the encouragement and very glad to hear you're still going strong. Were you playing while limping over that last year?
  11. Any goalies out there playing after hip replacement or hip resurfacing? After over 1500 games, practices and 6 years of football, Father Time is knocking at the door. Been playing on borrowed time for a while and I can see the hot lights of the surgical amphitheater in the distance. Hoping I don't have to hang'em up just yet. FIFTY-SIX (age 55)
