Hi Henry,
Sorry to hear about the pain you are experiencing.
I can sympathise wholeheartedly as this feels very similar to what I was going through 12 months ago, prior to having a THR, ie. limping, hardly being able to run etc.
I am new to the group and apologise in advance for “gate crashing” your post, however I am keen to get back running (even though I have been advised not too by my surgeon) and I am interested in finding out the different experiences following surgery.
Can I ask, did you have a total hip replacement or was it hip re-surfacing? (sorry for my ignorance in this field)
What is interesting is that your surgeon says that the hip has not worn after 8,000 miles – which is amazing. Do you now regret running following surgery?

Regards
Rob
