      Hi,

      Sorry about your dislocation, it’s the first I’ve heard of. I can remember my own THR (ceramic/ceramic) feeling a little sloppy during the first week or so and I was careful not to do anything risky.
      As the surgical pains diminished I started walking a bit further every day and the sloppiness disappeared. I was jogging at 6 weeks and climbing, carefully, soon after. Indoor biking helped, no shock loading.

      I think you should be ok but it might take a bit longer for your joint to get pulled tight after the dislocation.

      Take care!
