In case you were wondering, this is not a book about the flower children of the 1960’s and the Haight Ashbury scene. Well, maybe it is. Children born in the 40’s, 50’s and 60’s are now needing total hip replacements after years of use of the original ones. Diary of a Hippie is one man’s journey before and after his new hip was implanted.
I can relate! Being two months out from my second hip replacement at age 63, I wanted to see how my experience compared to others. Each of us goes through the process in our own individual way. And what the author gently reminded me, is that it takes a year for your body to completely heal and accept the new hip.
If you’re contemplating this surgery or need something to read while you’re resting after surgery, Diary of a Hippie is a quick and informative read that is sure to give you some tips and encouragement on your road to recovery.
