Unfortunately I have to have hip surgery coming up in November this year (2018). I wanted to write a clear explanation, and also how it might affect a few projects that I’ve been working on.
I’ve been dealing with this hip for a while now through physical therapy, chiropractic treatments, etc… and it has progressed to a point where I can no longer function without surgery. For the last 6 months I’ve occasionally used a cane, which has now become constant.
How did this happen?! Well, hard to say exactly, but we have a few culprits. I have put a lot of miles on my legs through the military, there’s a mix of some genetics with the ball and socket not making a perfect fit, and likely some calcium deposits on the joint as well. It bugs me thinking about the process of fixing all that through surgery, but it’s something that I am going to have to accept and deal with. The surgery isn’t highly difficult or complex, but the recovery I’m told will be heavy. The first 2 weeks off my feet, and then 4 on crutches. At least it’ll let me be as good as new by the start of 2019.
I wanted to tell family, friends, and fans all equally so they can be informed about the process. This has been something that I’ve kept somewhat private, but felt it will only help in the long run if those who care, know.
Lastly, any productions that I am currently involved with are still moving forward. This has been something I’ve been anticipating for a while, so our teams across the board will be able to handle everything in my leave. We have a few remaining voice pickups for Goldrush, but all physical production will be done well before surgery, thankfully.
Updates will follow, but now you know.
