15 months post op THR at age 60.
RegularClub runner before until my left hip made me stop running about 3 years ago.
Was given the standard warning about running and impact on new hip after operation, so I started back at gym 3 times a week as a substitute for running. When the gyms shut down back in March due to lockdown,after a few weeks of inactivity I started jogging round local park (on grass) and I am up to running 2 miles three times a week.
I dont feel any pain at all in the hip when running and feel the mental/physical benefits of running again so with no gym workouts I reckon i’ll just keep plodding on meantime.
