Hi, Hip brothers and sisters
I haven’t post nearly 6 months. I have been too busy to do so many things. At last, I have got Christmas holiday. My hip had one year old , Birthday at 7th October 2014. I had to go hip check up, still good condition or not. I took x-ray , surgeon, Mr Blake checked it, if it has bad sign or not. What He said to me was my hip component is the same as 2 days after operation. Nothing changed . Mr Blake told me ” NO more running!” before operation. But, This time , what He said to me was ” you can continue running. But, You have to check up every year” How good news is that! I do hope other hip brothers and sisters the same . Mr, Blake also told me , when I was discharged from the hospital. I feel much stronger and feel better bio hip. It did. It really did! I did Bournmouth half marathon race at 4th October. About 2700 runners were there. I was 676th. I was 2nd 44th, my age group. good hip 2000 runners were behind me. I did 19th October , Exeter great west run , half marathon , 3500 runners were there. I was 3rd age group. Both run time was 1: 49 . ( before operation , I was 1: 54) I ran 5 minutes faster than before. just amazing ! Bio hip is better than original one?? My last race was 13th December. I could not miss it. This race was cross country, 12k , we had to run slippery muddy, up the hill down the hill, narrow paths. But, at the end , yummy Christmas cake is waiting , I tasted some time ago. It was delicious! I saw cake before run, It was piling up in the tray. When I started running , I was worried not to fall over and if any cake left at the end of the race. I must run quite reasonable speed . Thanks goodness , when I finished run. I … (Click Here to View Full Post and Comments)

That day , unfortunately, heavy showers . but, I was very pleased to see old some running friends. I said to friends , I go to a half Marathon on Sunday. One of them said to me, You came here for warming up for tomorrow. I replied I am greedy, I want to do both. We always talk what is your next run, whenever , We meet up on the race and how we achieved it , etc. I missed such a social things , but, I was there physically at start line, more than pleased. Anyway, I had to run muddy paddles , country lanes , up and down. I fasten shoes with double knot, but, I lost shoes in the muddy puddles twice! I will show you tragedy evidence. Bad news was lost shoes , Good news is I was 2nd my age grope.
On Sunday, 27th April, I run Plymouth Half Marathon, Again very showery , windy day. I did many times half marathons in my past, but, I was nervous? I was excited?

But, when I started jog, I felt I can run like wind , When I realised I was running with less 2 hours group of people. I was wearing super woman’s costume. lots of people and children cheered me up. They said ” Super Woman ! Go ! GO! GO! ” Even, I started to tired to run , reply their encouragement, I waved them back, I tried to run as much as I could. When I arrived at … (Click Here to View Full Post and Comments)

Even I will be the last , If I can finish it, That will be great. Result was my age group, I was the 2nd, I could not be able to believe it. But, It happened. last cross country run, I over took at least 4 runners! I never ever thought after hip operation , such a thing will happen to me.

But, When I woke up this morning, my mind said “I want to try to run 10k on the road that I used to do ( about 6 months ago) . After operation , I was very very careful, try to be patient . ( my surgeon said ” He cemented stem part, but, not acetabular’s part) I have to give it chance amalgamate my bone and metal. It will take 3 months to 1 year ? These days , I started to very slow jog on off road 5k , swimming 1.5k , stable bike riding, treadmill 5k . I felt my muscle started to recover . maybe, strong enough to jog 10k. Anyway, I did it! I was very careful , very steady speed, No struggle, No pain. ( I feel a bit muscle pain) This progress is my best Christmas present to me. If my surgeon found out what I am doing , sure, He will be furious? He said to me Running is NO NO NO! I really show , approve THR people sill can run without wreck component one day. I read McAlpine’s book , read Tom and other’s reports. I am more than pleased to find this web site. tommorrow is Christmas, HAPPY CHRISTMAS TO EVERYONE !

I am new comer, My name is Naoko Mckinnon . I am 55years old. I had my THR operation 7th October 2013. Nearly 10 weeks had gone. I still remember previous day before operation , I tried to my favourite sea side walk, I could hardly walked. When I finished operation , maybe 3or 4 houres later, He asked me How I feel , I replied “Great!” No more pain ! I felt really fantastic. Everybody got it through this experience must be the same ? ( My pain was bad shot , lost 8 pounds) I was born as both dislocated hip baby. When I was baby, I could not stand , walk . Somehow a Japanese doctor fixed them. Once, fixed them , I became very active child , always zooming around. I like fresh air, love to do triathlon, running , water sports, skiing, etc. In UK Olympic game was on 2012, I was so excited it. I participated more than 30 races that year. ( London 10k race, plymouth half marathon, London triathlon, some race, I was the 1st in my age group. I was very pleased. ) But, 2013 I started feel something wrong my groin area , very sharp pain during the race, even easy 5k , I started to struggle to run . Found out hip OA , I went my surgeon , discussed my condition, made my decision , of course, my surgeon advised me “NO MORE RUNNING” I agreed it. But, I knew some people are still running somehow after running after operation, One of gentle man is still running 50miles per week, He did 3 marathons after operation . I am sure, some how We can do it. I read McAlfine’s book another day. It was very useful. My mind said I want to do Santa Run , I already did it ( just 10 weeks after OP) , but very careful jog. I went to see my surgeon 6weeks check up , He said to me ” you looks fine. I don’t need to see you till one year … (Click Here to View Full Post and Comments)
