Background, I’ve been a runner for > 10 years…..marathon runner for > 5 years. Earlier this year after suffering from joint pain that severely impacted my runs, diagnosed with severe arthritis in my left hip, I had anterior hip replacement. It’s been 14 weeks now.
I started PT at week 3. It started slow and then, of course built up from there. The PT made my PT different than most hip replacement patients as she knew my goals to get back to running.
I have been going back to spin classes 3-4 times a week since about week 6 or 7. I’ve tried to run twice both of which were very rough. The joint pain is gone but, I’ve been suffering since about week 4 with SI joint pain with pelvic rotation in that hip as well as some glute pain off and on. I researched online and found many stretches and exercises that I do for it but, it still comes back nagging almost every day. It’s frustrating.
Anyway else have this type pain after surgery and during recovery?
