It’s great to read this – I am almost 4 weeks post-op (LTHR, posterior approach), and to read that you’re running again after less than 4 months gives great hope – there are days when you begin to wonder if you’ll ever run again, but also days when progress is tangible.

My struggle is to not do too much too soon – I was very active before my op and want to get back to the cross-training, swimming and (albeit limited) running that I did right up to the day before my op. I know this is a marathon, not a sprint and I must learn to be patient.

I’m looking forward to my 6-week follow up appointment and getting the green light for some more activity beyond walking and the physio exercises.

I hope you’ll continue to post about your progress with running and other exercise as it does show what can be achieved.
