I guess I don’t understand why they want you to wait to have your hip replaced for another 4-5 years. Instead of suffering through the pain, I selected to have my left hip replaced as soon as possible so I could resume normal activities before it got too bad.

That being said, with my right hip replacement a couple of years ago, I just couldn’t run so did allot of outdoor biking and pool swimming (I am a triathlete so there is always something to work on) until the hospital opened back up during the covid shutdown. That kept me more than fit and resulted in a very fast recovery.
