I am one year post THR. I’ve tried running a mile or so every 4 or 5 days with success! No pains or issues. I made the mistake of mentioning to my doctor, a normal orthopedist who deals with people who are overweight, inactive, and a lot older than I, that I ran a mile. He cringed and said that I will never run again. I’m 52, a past Multiple marathon runner with multiple, multiple 5 k, 10 K, and half marathons? Is there any reason why my doctor so against me running.? I’ve been following this website so I’m confused as to what the issue really is. Maybe someone I can contact and discuss this with other than my doctor. Any input would be appreciated.
