Cool Brent.

Dr. Anseth did my surgery. Between 4-6 months prior to running I did a PT program not related to TCO. It was a series of strength building hip movements putting sideways stress on my new hip such as sideways banded walking. As a result, probably, when running I did not experience the soreness you are talking about. I did feel it early on going up stairs when lifting my leg to clear the stairs. Dr. Anseth did tell me if the Periforma started to hurt in the early stages, that I was overdoing it. The only pain I have now is when it is really cold outside (10 degrees f or colder) and I run, I get femur pain. So I try to avoid that and run on the TM or go someplace warmer in the winter:-)
