I actually had to go back and check the original post date.  I thought it might have been an April fools gag.

Great thread.  Hope H-n-H hasn't abandoned the group........

Yes, I am feeling a bit bad about how badly we beat him up.  But running at 10 weeks...

I cant believe that a surgeon is giving the OK to run at 10 weeks! Hip has only done what his surgeon told him he could.....but still personally i would have waited a lot longer than 10 weeks.

I keep thinking there must have been some sort of misunderstanding in his communication with the doctor.  I can't imagine any doctor OK'ing that.  If he did, well, I must admit, that scares me since it stands in the face of every other piece of information I have ever come across.

Can you imagine what McMinn would say?

I think Mcminn would be very unimpressed. I personally want this to both last me the rest of my life and allow me to get my life back. I personally think that a conservative initail approach will help this happen.

As is obvious in my posts on this thread, I couldn't agree more.  Even though I did have the OK to run at 6 months, I waited to 7 months to even do little 100 yard jogs during my long walks and still do not do any run segments longer than a half mile or so at a time during these long walk / jog sessions, and I am coming up on my 11th month.  I will emphasize I am still very focused on how everything feels and overly cautious about how much it gets pushed. 

Although I am doing a 70.3 triathlon on my first year anniversary,  I GUARANTEE I am going to be doing this EXACT long walk with some jogging short distances interspersed during the run segment of the event.  It will be a fun swim and bike with a nice stroll after that to the finish line.  I want to get back into the mix but I will not be "racing" any time soon.

It is unfortunate that there really isn't some sort of consistent protocol that new hippies could use as a dependable guide for safely getting back to impact activity.

I won't run, box, grapple or do any high impact stuff until January next year when I'll be 13.5 months post op. Thats just a personal thing in adding an extra 1.5 months but to me it makes sense. Yes im climbing the Walls already but I believe it will pay in the long run!

Danny - do other stuff.  Before surgery I was stewing about what could I do with just my arms to get a cardio workout.  Swimming without much kicking?  Actually kicking in swimming is no where near the same impact as just walking.  Rowing without using your legs?  You still have pressure on the legs but both are taking the heat at the same time, but the ROM with knees coming up might be an issue.

BTW - I was ok' by Pritchett to begin gradually running at 5 months.  I only did a few weeks of a off and on running and now it's been about a month and haven't done any.  I was cautious, plus I had a little discomfort in the flexor region of my August hip.  Taking it easy, but probably start light soccer the summer, with friends that are nice and aren't testerone-driven jerks (a sure-fire way to ruin a good hip).

You all will notice significant strength improvement at 18 months out up to 24 months out. Noticed a huge improvement in running, jumping, cycling, lifting during that time frame.


best,

Yup, those slide tackles will ruin a perfectly good day, Tin.

Thanks for the note, spencer, will have to tell the girlfriend that I'll be even more of a buff hippy within the next 10 months  8)

I am already doing other stuff mate. But I still intend on waiting till January next year to start easing back into my normal stuff

Yeah, I'm feeling kind of bad, too.  We were a little tough on the guy.

Especially in light of the Running Study I found and posted which said that the mean time before 'running was good' was 16.4 weeks.  Later than 10 1/2 weeks, true, but that 16.4 is the mean, so there were some in the study below that.  Not saying I advocate running that early, just that many hippys are doing it.

Okay.....if you haven't read the study just published by Dr. Gross, it states the following:

"We found that femoral neck fracture always occurred within 6 months postoperatively (Fig. 1C). Therefore, a return to full sports activity
should be delayed until the risk of femoral neck fracture is passed at 6 months postoperatively."

So, we should be paying attention to the surgical statistics....unless we want to be one.

I'm back - been running.  I hear you guys. I am running real consciously with only 1/4 of my weekly miles on the road. Water running, elliptical and gravity treadmill for the other 3/4. I got IM Cozumel in Nov which will be 8 months after last surgery. Def planning to take it easy.  Hip feels good - staying with trainer on increasing hip strength.  I am getting my ARSE back.

Love you guys. I am more scared of the biking than running.  Thanks for keeping it real. It keeps me balanced.
I just hope it is a little inspiration to those who are in pain and not enjoying their once active lifestyles.  It gets better everyday.

hip, I think you've been an inspiration all along (really admired your fight for the second HR). You'll get the right mix and join the other hippys that get their competitive lives back. I'm pulling for you on Cozumel, sounds like a good goal.
