Hi there,
Am 57 and a club runner I had my THR on my left hip in April was running again by July and raced a 5k in September. Recovery is all about taking it easy and listening to your body. I am due my other hip to be replaced hopefully ceramic on ceramic again as it has been fantastic. I know my surgeon said I would never run again they fear the hip wearing out but I had to balance my mental well being if I didn’t run, it is my way of de stressing and so I cut out the half marathons and try to train on my bike and run on grass or trails rather than the roads. Be sensible and you will get your running back
Cheers Ian
