July 27, 2011  2 years down the road i have just run a 5k in 20.47 minutes at my local gym with no pain or discomfort! I run an under 10 football team which i love and enjoy and my new hip resurface has let me do this without reservation! I play squash again and won my first game back after 2 and a half years 3-2 haha

After my op i was swimming in 2 weeks light jogging in 6 weeks and sprinting in 10 weeks so if you have any doubts about this operation please look and see the results because before this i could not run properly had trouble sleeping and was rather grumpy!

My running believe it or not is actually better since i got my left hip resurfaced in september 2009! I have just ran 20.47 for 5k which for me is a personal best and intend to run a marathon next year!!! Alls good!!!!!
