I had a THR over 4 years ago and stopped running because I was told I had to. I walked 3-5 miles a day instead but really wanted very badly to run.Last year I started to jog slowly for 3-4 miles at a time a couple of times a week and have felt really good. I am watching my weight and my pace to keep the impact to a minimum. I did not have a follow up exam for the first 3 years after the THR and finally saw my surgeon last year. He didn’t do anything but talk to me. I am wondering if any of you have had your surgeons X ray your hip to see how the sleeve is wearing. My surgeon told me he only used the titanium with a poly sleeve, so I had to go with that if he did the surgery and confessed they really don’t know how long they will last. I want to ask for an x ray to allay my fears of doing damage to the bone or the sleeve.
