DarrenO first post – Ceramic or plastic??

Hi All

I’m 40 years old and have finally accepted my fate! I need a new left hip.
I’m hoping to make a return to running (maybe not the marathons of before but hopefully 10ks?)

I’ve been to see a consultant in recent weeks who has suggested I might be able to get back to short distances. He actually suggested that sprint triathlons might be the way to go. I think he was secretly being very conservative as he suggested that many patients feel so good post op that they tend to overdo it.

He has suggested ceramic on plastic for me but now after a lot of research I’m wondering is ceramic on ceramic a better option for my running ambitions? It would be great to hear other people’s opinions and experiences on this?

Thanks in advance
