I had right hip resurfaced in March by Dr Gross. Recovery has gone well, started back in the gym after 2 months with biking, bodyweight exercises and light weights. I slowly worked myself back onto the treadmill around 6 months and today I ran my first 5K. Running was never my thing so it wouldn’t have bothered me if I was unable to run again. Fortunately, since I can run again, it meant a lot to be able to complete the race with no hip pain. Everything else hurt when I was done but the hip held up well. For those of you in recovery or thinking about getting the surgery, it’s a life changing experience and so worth the fear and recovery process. If I can run a 5K I promise you can too!
