Hi Scott, I have a right hip fitted with the Zimmer kit you will be getting – it’s a Biolox ceramic/ceramic bearing. Did you know that trabecular metal is Tantalum? Fascinating…
Mine is 3 years old, I was jogging 5k within 6 weeks, racing at 3 months and have done 13 miles a couple of times. I’m also a climber/mountaineer and had long days in the mountains last year on technical terrain with no problems.
My surgeon specifically said I would not be able to break my new joint, carry on doing what you have been doing was his advice. So far, so good – good luck with yours!
