Thank you both for your reply and your input. I am going back to he Dr. on 8 July for what I expect to be a good X-ray and an open door to return to something resembling normalcy. I have been walking a little but only with a walker, trying to keep less then 50% on my body weight on the new hip. No pain, all feels well. Any recommendations or experience re: when to take that first running step? Thank you.
