Thanks everyone for your replies. I’ve read so many conflicting articles about running after hip surgery that I’m even more confused. The most common answer that doctors give for not running is there is not enough data and/or long term studies to make an informed decision, along with there could excessive wear, loosening of the hip, or a broken leg. The longest study has been five years and that study did not show any excessive wear or loosening of the hip.
I’m curious to hear what some of your doctors had to say.
