Would love to hear of anyone who has returned to running after hip replacement, had mine six months ago missing running like hell, oh come on my fellow runners kick me back out there
I had a metal on metal hip resurfacing three years ago.The surgeon had no problem with me running but told me to wait for a year to let everything bed in and lose some weight.I have since completed two marathons,twenty half marathons and twenty five 10Ks.I sometimes get a bit of discomfort with the longer distances so have cut out the marathons.
Best of luck with your return to running and don,t rush it.
O thank you Jim you an insperation, well done to you, well have got out there again and WOW am re hooked the mind allways was!! bit info for you my hip ceramic on titaniam with large head my surgeon says at least 25 yrs use. We the new breed of bionic runners. Good luck to you. Gosh it must have been hard waiting a year.
The waiting was hard,but no point rushing it and risking more damage.
Hang in there.
You very sensible Jim.
Did short run in the week along Blackpool prom 'O it was heaven' the waves rolling the lovely warm breeze, yes it well worth being patient.
had my hip resurfaced 7 years ago. Started running 10ks three months after operation. My top distance was 12 miles after the op but reduced it to just 10k due to some pain. Up till tree years ago I was running to keep wait down when sudenly the pain started kicking in when I got only a few miles in to my run. I then also got news that the implant was being recalled! So all running stopped. Tests came back from hospital that my implant was ok and no need to take it out. The pain is to do with lower back. Now I have moved to semi retire in Tenerife, Canary Islands and in the last week have tried running again. I did a test 3.3mile run yesturday and it went ok with no pain. So Im going to give it a few days now before another run, make it 4 miles this time. The heat out here helps alot!
