Second THR Monday !

The day has arrived! On Monday I will have my second THR. This time it’s my right hip. My left hip was successfully replaced 5 years ago at the age of 56.  I began running 5 months post op the first time up  until 3 months ago when the pain in my right hip STALLED my running. Two months ago I followed Tom’s advice and purchased a Zero Runner. I have been using it pain free and anticipate that it will become a permanent part of my  training post op. Thank you Tom! I don’t know how quickly I will begin using the Zero Runner post op but I am hopeful it will be within a few months. I will keep you all posted!

P.S. Tom’s video of him running “hands free” on the Zero Runner is amazing.

  1. Best wishes for your op
    Not sure what the Zero runner is but sounds interesting – I will need to research.
    Hope you’ll be running soon

  2. Brian, congrats on the new hip! That Zero Runner will keep you sane. I have been battling a knee issue and the zero Runner allows me to continue to work out pain free. Set your goals. Stay optimistic! You will be back in no time!

  3. 5 days post op! Feeling good and pain is manageable with Tramadol. I should be using only Tylenol by Monday. Ditched the crutches today so I am further along then my first THR. I am anxious to get on the stationary bike and into the pool. So far so good!
