My total right hip replacement was on January 1, 2017. I am amazed that I forget most of the time that I had a hip replacement. Other areas of the old bod are wearing out but the hip is doing great. My surgeon like most instructed me I wouldn’t be able to run. I’ve proved him wrong for over 7 years now and counting. I’ve run numerous half marathons and the worst pain I had was from plantar fasciitis, not the hip. A study of runners who’ve had replacements would be a great study. Count me in as a guinea pig. I can sleep good at night knowing I made one of the best decisions in my life to get a replacement due to the future looking extremely bleak if I didn’t. Live your life like your replacement will outlive you!!
