I'm a 50 year old male and had my right hip replacement (BHR) operation 3 years ago.
The metal used was Cobalt, I did some running before the operation, a couple of miles each week on the treadmill and have recently started again, along with some resistance traning nothing to heavy. Could anyone tell me,am I doing wrong? should I stick to the cross trainer to save wear on my new hip?
I feel better since starting the gym again and do feel some discomfort but not really pain the day after a run.
But this seems to be getting less and less.
I just worry long term it may not be good for my hip.
Hi Steve: I am not a doctor, but have lived with my husband through two knee replacements and a hip...Add to this my son also had his hip replaced...IMO, the surgery is wonderful, however, you cannot replace the real thing...To me, the discomfort is telling you something... I would stick with the cross trainer...Take care...
