Troubling to read of people with post-op problems, but I guess that's the nature of the beast - it's not usually one singular thing, more a combination of problems, some of which will be solved, some of which may get exacerbated and some new ones from what is still invasive surgery, albeit a fairly light touch in comparison to olden days.
bearing in mind my history (caught early) and my inability to take it easy, plus sparing a thought for those not findign resolution I just thought I should wave the flag of my latest progress.
Biking lots more than running since ops. It's been just over a year since the first one. Run at least once a week. But hadn't done more than 10 miles so I thought I would try a bit further. So last saturday managed 18 miles offroad over Simon's Seat in just under 3 hours. Got into a rhythm that I felt I could have done further. Tired legs obviously, but hips seem generally alright. Short run on monday evening, MTB on Wednesday, everything workign correctly.
Physio seems to think getting bounce back in muscles. Lots of rehab exercises to do still - more than I can possibly deal with, easpecially as working a 6 day week in 5 days at the moment.
Stretch hamstrings and glutes/priformis etc every night. Regularly use thigh master for adductor strengthening. Lots of foam roller and sitting on a hockey ball for deep tissue massage.
All in all, things goign well. Not going to kid myself that I should run marathons regularly, but nice to know that there is life in the old dog yet.
My old racing partner thinks I should do the OMM Elite again. I have disabused him of this crazy notion...
...though maybe next year?
Good luck all. Keep trying different things - there is no one solution to these problems, but ultimately if the problem is a mechanical one (too much bone in the wrong place) there is only one real solution - get rid of it. Then you can get to work on the rest of the problems.
