I am glad you found us. First! I want to commend you for getting the replacement. Quality of life is so important and you are going to notice an immediate difference. The hip pain will be gone. Second and probably most importantly, don’t try to hop back on the horse too fast. I started trying to run 3 months after surgery. I was able to run, but it did not feel right initially. After the euphoria of being free of the pain, you will have to be patient as that hip heals. Every day it will get stronger. 11 years later and I just completed a 52K mountain run – it wasn’t fast like Dave, but there were no hip issues! Stay optimistic! Stay positive and eventually you’ll be back to running marathons!
