Hello. I’m wondering if there are many people here who have had both hips replaced? If so, have you been able to get back to running again? Osteoarthr

Hi Stuart, welcome.
I’m bilateral, a BHR resurfacing 6 yrs ago and a THR nearly 4 years ago – both lateral incisions. Have a look at my posts for some more details but basically running after 8 weeks (less for the THR) and still running now. Just had a bit of a purple patch, racing up to 16.5 miles and making club standards at Gold level from 1 mile to 30km. Everything aches nowadays, except the hips…

I had both hips replaced. Left one in Nov. 2010, and the right hip in Feb. 2020. Both hips done laterally. I also had my right hip dislocate in March 2020, and it had to be surgically repaired. That surgery was posterior. Long story short, I’ve worked my way from walking, then began jogging in Nov. of 2020. I was very hesitant, due to the dislocation, but I’m running now about 3 miles at a time, 3 times a week, and weight training 3 times a week. I feel great, with no issues now. Except for some range of movement issues (and that’s very slight) I can’t even tell I have artificial hips. Hope this helps.
