I had my six week check in with my surgeon yesterday. I had a posterior Stryker ceramic head with titanium post and poly / metal socket installed on my left side. I had the same on my right two and half years ago. They told me 6 to 12 months before I should run. I asked why and they said it takes about that long to fully grow into the bone and cement, let the muscles heal long enough to start strength training to allow everything to take the pounding of running. That being said I started walk jogging on my right at four months and starting slowly returning to running at six months with run walk intervals.
