Thank you. I’m now 9+ weeks post-op. I was told my hip was in very bad shape so I guess it was a bit of a miracle that I had been performing as well as I had been! I’m swimming 5-6 days a week and beginning to build my bike strength and endurance. I’m aqua jogging for now – building ROM and endurance. I’m forcing myself to be patient so I can return to running safely. Recovery is going well, if you saw me, you would never know. There’s still some aches and pains – but overall it’s been steady progress. I’m eager to start short run intervals but I’m making myself wait until at least 16 weeks post-op. I want to give the bone every chance to heal well before I start.
