triathlete and Running.
« on: May 25, 2014, 12:06:46 AM »


Hi , As an active and very competitive Triathlete [ age 62], I am about to under go a B.H.R. operation . Is there any one out there who is a serious Age Group triathlete , that has had the B.H.R. procedure done and still races strongly on it . Also how log ago did you have the Op. and what effects on you has it had . What sort of Run training do you currently do . I only compete at Standard Olympic and Sprint Distance races.   :) Thanks.

The over the top obvious Tri/resurfacing example is Cory Foulk...

I dont think Tinley races any more, but he's very active post resurfacing...

Get a good surgeon, be patient with recovery and then push...  your hip will not be the limiting factor. :)

One thing I'll add to the first link... I think Foulk was a little crazy and lucky with what he did so fast and getting away with it.  I think if you can mentally set aside the first year for recovery and getting stronger, that's a good approach.  It doesn't have to be a step back at all.  Use it to improve core, spin, swim, etc.

Sounds good to have a break off Tri for a year, just getting my mind set around it.Cheers.

Have read the Foulks blog !!!. Man , what an inspiration, seems unbelievable but shows what can be achieved. And for me , just wanting to do only Standard and Sprint Distances, I should make it in a breeze. Here's hoping all goes well in July this year- LBHR. :) Hopeful Kiwi.

Good luck to you. It seems that the biggest issue derailing a lot of recoveries is scar tissue buildup. There are a few ways to deal with this. Personally I started with Active Release Technique (ART) 6 weeks after my surgery. You don't want to let the scar tissue from surgery build up because of the pain and Range of Motion issues.

Good luck!

Yes, I agree with you about the recovery and scar tissue. Am lucky that I have a top man doing my re-hab, and therapy work . Am confident that we will not have a problem with scar tissue caused by in correct/ lack of  re-hab work. Thanks . Kiwi Boyo. :) :D

I am a fellow 60 year old Kiwi triathlete chasing Shoraztri around the race tracks.  I had a BHR 6 weeks ago done by Hugh Blackley (same surgeon) who has done many more than any other NZ surgeon (over 600).  We have been in regular contact,

Absolutely delighted with the progress and results.  Hugh's approach with walking and cycling is that if there is no pain, no problem.  Crutches are only needed for balance, not support.  I was off crutches in 10 days, but went back on to one for a few days when a nerve came back to life and gave some sharp pain. 

I am now comfortably walking 5km and am getting some hills into the mix.  I can now stride out when walking and am up to about 6km per hour when I do.  I have not run for 18 months and am still undecided about getting back into it - I fear the rest of the body will complain (4 knee arthroscopies!), but Hugh says no problem to start when I am ready if I want to.

I was on a wind trainer after 3 weeks and on the road in 5 weeks. Spinning was fine from the start and I am gradually increasing the amount of resistance and downward pressure I can apply.

A dodgy shoulder and dodgier weather have limited swimming, but no problems with the hip there.

Told to avoid impact sport or activities for 6 months.  Exercises and regular activities mean I probably don't need PT - but I will see how the muscles fully recover.  [That should start some debate!!]

A couple of things I plan to follow up on.  My gait and cycling stroke have changed slightly, so I will visit a podiatrist and bike fit specialist to ensure I get any necessary adjustments sorted (I used to run in orthotics) before I get too serious again.

Happy to share further details if you wish.

Saw Shoraztri Tuesday - op was just in time but went well and he is on the recovery trail

Hi Kiwi hippie,
Mate , thats an Awesum blog on what happened , your progress, observations and results from such.
Im sure it gives me so much more confidence in what can be achieved , post Op. So long as one sticks to the protocol of the Surgeon , then we all will be "rocing along at a great rate of knots " , which was un-achievable prior to BHR surgery.

I have a separate write up on my BHR operation within the website[ shoraztri].
Cheers to 1 and all.

Hi all,
On Monday 7th July 2014 , I had a Left Hip, BIRMINGHAM HIP RESURFACING OPERATION done by Dr Hugh Blackley, here in New Zealand at Southern Cross Hospital, on the North Shore.
I cannot THANK Dr Blackley enough for his skill and precision in doing this op. , for I was a borderline case , due to my 62yrs of age + the actual  bone / joint condition. I have been a super active Triathlete since 1997. I consistently race at the "top end " of my Age Group, and on the World scene as well. In hindsight , I should have had this procedure a few years ago.

Dr. Blackley was great at the first appointment when we decided to get a BHR, and gave me all the options and choices that may or may not happen , once you are on the "table ". My Op. was approx 2hrs and recovery approx the same , so in just under 4hrs I was awake and back in my own room. Naturally one is sore , in pain and discomfort , but with time and a few days , all of these hugely subside. Its strongly advisable that you have all medications, even if you are non pill-popper.

Next day after the Op, I was doing simple leg exercises and a few steps on crutches. Because I'm a Full On person , Dr. Blackley has me on a very cautious recovery programme [otherwise I will fly off and do heaps !!!] .
Its now Day 7 ,and alot of the pain has subsided, and been replaced by more of a " discomfort" type of pain. I do very little walking, only minimal exercises , 2 crutches for everything , and generally lie around and get better. I feel like a big pitbull on a chain , just itching to have a go , but that's a top sensation , for PATIENCE IS THE KEY. As each week progresses, I will slowly up the tempo, according to Dr. Blackley.
I fully intend to go back to Top Level Triathlon competition[ Olympic and Sprint distances] once my re- hab is completed fully , X rays are all good and my Surgeon is a happy chappie.  :)

In reading posts from other athletes , the common FAULT is returning to soon to Full exercise and sport. This is why I am choosing to LISTEN TO THE SURGEON , and follow accordingly. Its a hellofalot of money to flush down the toilet , by not adhering to the rules. Also most other Hippies say get a good surgeon . With Dr. Blackley , he certainly is in this ELITE category. I must also mention the top care and professional attention that all of the Staff showed at Southern Cross North Shore Hospital. Great meals , great service, great attention to details.  ;D   
As time and the weeks slip by , I will update my progress etc. Thanks to all other Hippies out there for their posts and experiences. It makes a massive difference. Live your Dreams.
Cheers , Kiwi Boyo from Down Under.  ;) :) ;D

Well done - good to read of your experience with Hugh Blackley.

Glad you're doing well.

You're wise to reign in your enthusiasm to do too much.

Good luck with your recovery.

You've got a good attitude and approach. The time for triathlons will come, now is the time to recover well.

Congrats!

Hi Sho,
I've raced half Ironman  after surgery and qualified and raced in Las Vegas for the World Championships.  Goal is to get back to Hawaii WC...Not been happy with my hip comfort when trying to increase speed/distance in training this year.  Going to do a stand alone NYC Marathon this fall in hope...doing all kinds of cross sport training...DOING an IM after a BHR is not a huge tackle...obtaining the same pre-surgery speed is my goal...
Wish you the best...
