Hi Sean. 63YO on second THR. This time left. Sounds like you may have done too much to fast. Get evaluated by a PT and work on muscle strength, IT Band, and all of the muscles hip related. It took me 6 months to return to running in 2014 after 1st hip. I tried too soon, and caused muscle damage.
With this latest left hip (4weeks ago) I’m focusing on total muscle strengthening and do not plan on running until at least January.
Whether you went posterior or anterior, it’s still major surgery that requires internal healing. I did posterior to avoid nerve damage. It will take a while, but I will run again!
Good luck and listen to your pain!!
