hi Stuart, yep, had right and left THJR 4 months apart, 2 years ago. About 3 months after the first one I did only a bit of shy jog/walks. After the second one, again I left it 3 months before jogging/walking intervals. Good days and bad days, particularly at the beginning. Being sensible but keeping positive was the best approach. Also, you lose a lot of nerves and muscles with the surgery so I found swimmming pool walking/squatting first, then gym sessions (lunges, squats, stretching) helped a lot. I only go to the gym once a week now, but did it 2-3 times/week in the first few months. Two years after, I have already one marathon and several half marathons under the belt, and my pace is slowly approaching my pre-surgery PBs.
