I have a friend in my class who has had a total hip replacement, about 4 =
months ago. She is interested in returning to class, possibly though =
only to dance strathspeys. I have encouraged her to get herself back in =
good working order before attempting anything. I've especially stressed =
the importance of redeveloping the major muscles in the the thigh and =
outer upper leg.

She has asked me to send out a call for any stories of other people who =
might have had a hip replacement and returned to SCD. She is a woman in =
her early 60's and is relatively fit other than the extreme arthritis =
she's been having in the hip that has since been replaced. If you have =
had any experience in this area, or if you know of someone I might =
contact regarding this, we'd be most appreciative.
