I had my right hip replaced 7th September. Like you I have encountered a lot of negativity about running. I think for those who don’t run, it seems an unnecessary risk. Those of us who do run can’t imagine life without it and are willing to trade some increased risk for the physical and mental health benefits running brings. I am not in a hurry to run, but know I will. My surgeon was the only one who didn’t say it was impossible, it’s one of the reasons I chose him. All the best for your recovery.

My resurfacing hip-operation was december 2019. ran since I was 24. 17 marathons and running is part of my life. I can run about 40 k a week now. Progress went very slowly, but you have to be patient. Running 5 times a week, 7, 8k. Very happy with that. I’m 60.All the best for you and think posiitive. It is possible to run again!

Hi all. I’m about 5 weeks post op. Walking twice a day, 2 miles each time, on a local track. Virtually no pain, hard not to start jogging. I go back to the surgeon on 11/10/21 to have xrays and make sure the bone is growing on to the implant. I feel great. But I’m still going slow so I don’t screw it up. I’ll be 63 on 11/12. It’s a journey for sure.

Been awhile since my lady update. I’ve been doing the elliptical on a semi regular basis since Christmas. Walking also, mostly on the weekends. I’m really itching to start running again but will wisely wait until my follow up with my surgeon in 31 days. It seems to be doing well. Typically no pain. Occasionally it aches but mostly when I overdo things. I’m sure I’ll need to get muscle strength and flexibility back but plan to start some exercises on that front this week. Fingers crossed.

Cripes, auto correct. “Last” update, not lady update.
