I found some great posts on the web that I had to include in this area….I’ll continue to add as I find them.
GIMPY. So this first testimonial is in response to an individual named Gimpy who had a hip replacement and was asking the community what they thought about running. She had started to run, but was concerned about the long term effects. There were several replies to her post. The boo birds were there telling her all about the no-no’s of running after hip replacement, but one individual left the following quote:
4 years ago I had both hips replaced 7 weeks apart, my Dr. was fine with me running again so 6 weeks after my second hip I started running. It wasn’t easy but I stuck with it and last year I was able to run the Twincities Marathon. Now I run 6 miles three days a week and it’s like I never had arithritis. So Gimpy Keep running!
