  1. I'm not an expert, but I had been jumping regular for over 30 years with a man made hip replacement & a amputation on the same leg. I weighed in at 175 Lbs. & 5'11" & always tried to stay in shape. I managed to get a couple thousand jumps. What I did wrong was gong 35 years on the hip replacement when I should have listened to original advice of doctors telling me 20 + years is the limit. After breaking my femur on the way home from DZ I was laid low after 45 years. I ended up getting expert orthopedic care, replacing hip & femur twice. I have absolutly no regrets going for the max skydives! OLd retired Air Trash, POE #6
