14 Weeks Post-Op: Introduction


Thank you for accepting me Tom, I appreciate the gesture.  Bit about me, Justin Rogers, 33 years old with a permanent ileostomy due to Crohn’s disease and now a Ceramic on Poly THR resulting from a few years on corticosteroids.  I am now 14 weeks post op after surgery the first week of may at Rothman Institute in Philadelphia by Dr. William Hozack.  It went great, I feel pretty good so far.  Some minor aching still, though I have been lifting and cycling since six weeks post op with no real complaints.  I am concerned though with running; my first run was a short 2.25mi on Friday followed by another 2.25mi Tuesday.  My surgeon told me after 12 weeks I would be able to resume running, I was doubtful and asked a few times repeating the same question and scenarios to be completely sure on their answer and recommendations.  After reading some snips here I see things like 6 months post op to resume running ect.  I am now really questioning if I should hang the shoes back up for another few months and just ride my bikes?

Any input would be great, thanks again for accepting me.… (Click Here to View Full Post and Comments)
