My hips were done 30 months apart. L is a metal/metal Birmingham resurfacing, R is a ceramic/ceramic Zimmer THR. Was up to speed after a year or so on the first but knew I only had 2 years left on the other. Since having 2 fake hips I have got back to about 95%, with a couple of periods where the recent leg was painful – possible a stretched/trapped nerve – brought on by doing too much. The last month I have been attempting to meet county standards (65-69 Silver) at 1, 5, 6 and 10 miles and 5k so currently there are pains everywhere! Next target is to start on 70-74 Gold standards, from next week…
Have managed several long days in the hills this year, in between lockdowns, including a couple of 20 miles and one of 42 miles – no problems from legs on these, just everything else!
My advice is to get yours done asap and get training again likewise.
