CLOSE UP WITH INDO BOARD TEAM RIDER, TRINITY LEWIS

CLOSE UP WITH TEAM RIDER, TRINITY LEWIS

I got to spend time with my friend and team rider, Trinity Lewis. He is an amazing young man who has a great and bright future. During our conversation, I asked him what he loved about INDO BOARD.

” What makes me so interested in INDO BOARD is it gives me an opportunity to create my own moves. The creative part of any art form is always the most important part. Creativity is the mother of all art. When you create something you give life to it. Creativity is not from the mind, it is from the soul. There is no point in copying others move. You must create your own style. Creativity is what will set you apart from the rest.”

Trinity’s set of skills are incredible. Take a look at his two latest videos.

2018 SEA OTTER CLASSIC
Monterey, CA – APRIL 19-22, 2018 – 
The Sea Otter Classic rolled into its 27th year at Laguna Seca raceway this past weekend under sunny skies drawing exhibitors, racers, and fans alike to the unofficial North American Season opener.
Jill Kintner competed in both the Slalom and Downhill events against a stacked field of international talent to claim victories in both events once again. This marks Jill’s 8th consecutive win in Dual Slalom, and 6th in DH, giving her the most successful run of any athlete at this event.
JILL KINTNER – Slalom 1st 
“ It was interesting to see a more natural build to the slalom course this year with off-camber natural grass turns, ruts, and fewer man-made sections. The racing was difficult because of the traction and rewarded control. Slalom is my favorite event, and I try to be better and better each year regardless of what I have done in the past. Obviously, it feels great to win such a big event in front of so many people, so thanks to my sponsors who make it all possible:).”

Indo Board Man and the Quest for a New Hip Part 7

Indo Board Man spent the first night alone on Sunday, three days after his hip surgery. He stopped using the prescription pain meds but was complaining of swelling in his leg. Ibuprofen to the rescue! With the help of Ibuprofen, he slept better and continued his exercises and recovery with the help of walks from his “personal trainer” (his two year old grandson).

His personal trainer also helped him make the phone calls to set up therapy and home nursing. His nurse and therapist were both impressed with his recovery.

Six days post op, with the okay from the therapist, he dropped the walker in favor of a walking stick. He took walks up to the next block and back.

He also drove his van for the first time! This hip replacement was only slightly slowing him down. He was more at risk of doing too much to soon than any other complication.

Indo Board Man and the Quest for a New Hip Part 6

It’s day two post op and Indo Board Man is ready to get the heck out of the hospital.

After discharging him, he laid down in the back of his van for the ride home which took an hour and a half. Then he settled in for the first day at home. Armed with his walker, he took it easy night one.

Day two he read, slept, did his therapy and even had enough strength to cook Linguine and Clams

One of the few complaints was his inability to walk with the walker and carry his water bottle at the same time. An Amazon prime order fixed that and he was outfitted with a cup holder that attached to the walker. Since he came home on the weekend, he had to wait until Monday for the home physical therapist to arrive. But he felt good enough to entertain his grandsons Sunday evening.

They were delighted with him giving them redi-whip in the can.

More on week one recovery later!

Indo Board Man and the Quest for a Better Hip Part 4

Indo Board Man had his first physical therapy session at 7pm, 7 hours after his hip replacement. Check out the videos of his first time standing and walking on his new hip.

Indo Board Man was feeling little pain as the doctor injected a steroid medication during the operation that was still in effect. Indo Board Man was ready and raring to go! He reported no pain and an immediate ease to walking with the problems of the osteoarthritic femoral head gone!

He walked 200 feet before the therapist turned him around and walked him back to the room. The therapist was impressed with the smooth movement of muscles in the legs as Indo Board Man was describing the problems prior to surgery. The advantages of the “Anterior Approach” became reality as there was no pain caused by muscles being cut.

So far so good!

Indo Board Man and the Quest for a Better Hip part 3

Indo Board Man’s surgery lasted about 2 hours and he spent several hours in post op waiting for a room to open up. The doctor gave him these x-rays of the finished procedure. This procedure was the Anterior approach which means the incision was at the front of the hip. This is the most advanced method for a total hip replacement because there is no cutting of the muscles. The hip is accessed by going in between two muscles without any cutting of the support muscles which makes for a much faster recovery. The ‘spike’ is titanium and carefully positioned inside the femur to support the new ball and precisely fit into the new socket of titanium and plastic.

Here is the new bionic hip and below is a picture of the new hip with the resurfaced hip. The surgeon aligned the left hip with the right resurfaced hip. The zipper is how the doctor gained access to the hip…just kidding! Hahaha! The 2010 resurfacing was a “posterior approach” which means they come in from the back of the hip with a much larger incision and cutting of the gluteous maximus in order to access the femoral head. The hospital stay in 2010 was 4 nights and required lots of pain meds to recover. This time was completely different with 1 nights stay in the hospital and a minimum of pain meds.

 

While waiting in post op, he helped himself to a few popsicles. That was his first food since dinner the night before and the popsicles were most welcome at 2 pm after the surgery.

 

After spending several hours in post op, he finally had a room.

He caught up on all the happenings and well wishes from his facebook friends while waiting for the physical therapist to arrive. At least his room had a nice view.

Check back for Indo Board Man’s first therapy session!
