| | Re: Running after hip replacement
You have absolutely made my day. Motivation, fitness level, etc. will not be a problem for me. I am already in better shape than most folks my age, and knowing that being in top condition will up my chances for running after the procedure, I'll refocus my daily training. As far as choosing a surgeon is concerned, I don't care where I have to go in the country to find someone who is willing to help me remain active, as opposed to a surgeon who tells me that I should just "accept what happens to us as we grow older". Are you permitted to tell me where you had your surgery done, and by whom?
Also, I'm interested in hearing about your pre-surgery training regimen. Did you focus on the hip induction/abduction exercises, as well as core-strengthening routines? Anything specific that you found to be exceptionally helpful?
Thanks again for the bright light at the end of a very dark tunnel.
