i was going to recommend the resurfacing myself, having had both mine done, within a year of each other, two years ago (i'm now 53), but i guess if you've already had total hip replacement on one, there must be a good reason for it, which probably applies to the other one too, so probably not an option for you. mine are metal on metal, with ceramic linings so that the bone can grow into it. i'm not a huge exercise fan but i do enjoy fell walking and things like that, and i can hop, skip and jump with the best of them now. the recovery period for resurfacing is longer, to allow the bone to grow and secure the joint, 6 weeks on crutches, 6 weeks 2 sticks, 6 weeks one stick. but after that, the more you put in, the better the recovery, and no restrictions about crossing your legs or bending more than 90 degrees. in fact i've been told i could almost run a marathon if i wanted (i don't!!). go onto 'birmingham hip' on google and see what comes up. good luck with whatever you decide.
