3 months post-op!

Hello hiprunner community. I’m a newbie hiprunner, about 3 months post op and just signed up from Saskatoon, Saskatchewan Canada. I have started to read some of the good news stories on this site and hope someday one of them can be mine.

A bit of background. I was quite an avid runner and soccer player but about 2 years ago that lifestyle started to become very very difficult. I had torn my quad a couple years in a row playing soccer and the second time it just didn’t rehab like expected. I tried physic, massage, acupuncture, chiropractor and obtained temporary relief but it was always short lived. Shooting pain in my hip, quad, groin and but was random and increasingly harsh so I went back to my doctor for X-rays. Last May, my doctor called me and gave me the news that my right hip was in bad shape. On a scale of 1 to 10 I asked him? Bad is all he said.

In late September of 2016, I gave the surgeon the ok to put me on his list and I got in on a cancellation and had surgery November 9th. Quite the new experience for me, one I certainly don’t want to repeat but after 3 months I’m actually feeling pretty good. Back on the bike, walking lots, doing my theraband exercises religiously and I’ve even engaged in the odd jog.

This summer I’m expecting to limit myself to continued rehab, golf, biking and swimming. I thought I’d hold off on running until later summer or fall but I’ll see what my physiotherapist recommends and look forward to reading more of your very encouraging stories. Bye for now everyone!… (Click Here to View Full Post and Comments)
