I got a total hip replacement on my right hip back in May of 2018. Like I’ve said in earlier posts, it took me over a year to start feeling like running was ok after surgery. I’ve had a great year running so far this year. Lots of adventuring in the mountains of Alaska. Ran some 5Ks under 18 minutes and even qualified for Boston again in August with a 2:59 marathon. However, my other hip is very arthritic and it’s to the point where it’s affecting my sleep and getting around isn’t much fun anymore. My Doctor told me it was just a matter of time before I had to do my other hip.
I’m just curious how many of you on this forum got both hips replaced and how is the running with 2 hip replacements? I definitely would love to get another year of running before surgery, but I just don’t think it’s possible.
Any advice would be great!
Hope all is well Hip Runners!
