Hi John,

I broke my right femoral hip in a bicycling accident in June 2019. At the time, it was repaired with 3 screws. I was told that I could not run or jump for 3 months, but after that I could do what I wanted.

Recovery seemed to go well for a a while. Unfortunately in my case, the blood flow to the ball of my hip had been disrupted and I developed avascular necrosis. This necessitated a THR in October 2020.

I hope that you have better luck than I did and that you’ll be running in a few months. Fingers crossed for you!
