4 years ago I had both hips replaced 7 weeks apart, my Dr. was fine with me running again so 6 weeks after my second hip I started running. It wasn’t easy but I stuck with it and last year I was able to run the Twincities Marathon. Now I run 6 miles three days a week and it’s like I never had arithritis. So Gimpy Keep running!
I’ve met my match. THIS DUDE IS C-R-A-Z-Y!!! I think my friends would say that I’m as hard core as they come, but there is NOOOOOOOO way that I would attempt to run after 6 weeks. I still feel pain. It’s still tender down there. I would be afraid I’d do more damage than good. No wonder it wasn’t easy for the guy. He was still in FREAKING pain!!! I’ll stick to Dr. Tim’s advice and wait 3 months before I test the waters. And I intend to run more than 3 days a week too! Still optimistic……..just not crazy. 🙂
