      Hi there. Good luck for your op tomorrow. By Monday you’ll be a new person and you’ll wish you’d had the op sooner. All of us on here have gone down the same road that you’re about to embark on & we can honestly say that this is a ” get better and better” operation. I remember too well the fear and trepidation I felt beforehand but I can say that by the time came 2 years later for my op on the other hip I was so looking forward to it. You will get back to you’re running as I have. Good luck and keep us up to date. And remember… Do you’re exercises diligently.

      My story is the same as Felicity. I had my second hip one year after my first. I w not into the second surgery with excitement because I knew what life was like in the other side.

      I was cleared to start running 7 weeks after surgery. And ran two half marathons within 6 months.

      Best of luck!!!

        That’s an amazing recovery Rusty, well done. I’m targeting running “properly” again next year with this year refining my technique and enjoying the freedom of movement. Well done you, just keep running!

      I’m in my hospital bed now, operation successful and they even managed to replace the correct hip – which was a irrational worry, along with my leg being back to front.

      So far so good. No pain yet, although I’m still on painkillers and I haven’t tried standing, so we’ll see how that goes.

      Thank you for your words of support – let the journey begin!

      Good luck on your recovery and hopefully you will get back to running better than before in time.

      Adie-
      How is it going, are you still in the hospital? Every day will get a little bit better. I had mine on Jan 15 and every day has been better than the last. I just took our dog for a walk this morning around the block for the first time. This afternoon, I walked a few blocks with him- I live in Chicago and it’s 8 degrees out and supposed to snow 10″ and then drop to 15 below in a couple of days, so I figured I should get out there now! I am supposed to have my 2 week check-up with the doctor tomorrow, so we’ll see how that goes. Some advice that a friend gave me, that I have also heard echoed on this site, is to just stick with the rehab program that the PT gives you- don’t do more or less, this is a time to let your body heal. Anyway, good luck- you are through the hard part and things will get better!

        Thank you for your advice Willy. I’m still in hospital, although I may be released today depending if I pass the step test. The pain actually hasn’t been too bad and I have been up and moving around. I’m very stiff and swollen and the bruising looks pretty bad, but so far so good. Good luck with your recovery, I was lucky enough to visits Chicago a few years ago, a great city, and you are right my biggest challenge is trying not to do too much too soon.
