Just rolled 50 this past year running for the past 20+ years and playing competitive sports up until that point. I've run countless marathons and Ultra's and love the dirt over the pavement. I was diagnosed with stage 2 OA in my right hip just over 5 years ago. I am now stage 3 OA with bone on bone. Miraculously, I am still able to run 6-8 miles, 3 times a week and bike / swim on off days. During the past 5 years I've had two stem cell injections - one in 2015 at the Steadman Clinic in Vail and then a second in 2018 at Midwest Orthopedics at Rush in Illinois. Not sure if this bought me some time - hard to be sure. I now rely on CBD and Turmeric to reduce inflammation which has worked incredibly well. I am a firm believer in daily stretching and strengthening as well. At this point I am now considering setting a date for THR. I want to be able to continue to be active without the daily pain reminders.
