talk to another doctor is right! I had my hip done 10 days ago, (I’m 67) so that my moderate arthritis would be addressed and I could continue running after recovery. My surgeon (NYU) told me the only reason NOT to run again is that the device will wear out sooner than the 25-year average. So I figured, at 67, am I gonna worry about the device wearing out in 20 years? Nope.
