Hi Will – assuming you can currently pass the treadmill test I don’t think you will have any trouble at 12 weeks post-op. Ceramic on plastic seems to be the best combination nowadays (I have all-ceramic) and you are a youngster so should recover quickly. I was back to 5k parkruns at 6 weeks after my THR, but not at that pace because I am very old… Have got back to 6:40 pace (9mph) for 1 minute intervals, at the 28-month mark. This was marathon pace 30 years ago!
Go for it, your current relief is temporary (as was mine) and you need a new hip soonest…
Good luck, and keep in touch!
Pete
