I was a very active individual, playing football, jogging and going gym 5-6 days a week. Over the last year or so, everything has come to a halt.
I was due to have a HIP Athroscopy opp in Jan 2018, however after a routine follow up/ scan in December 2017, the scans had shown that I had lost all my cartilage in the left hip and needed a THR.
It took me about 2 weeks to process the news and accept my condition and the surgery that I needed.
My THR date is now set for March 2018. My question is; after a THR, how active can I realistcly be?
I know I won’t be allowed heavy impact/ contact sports such as football, basketball and jogging.
But I have seen/ heard and read accounts of people who have had THR who have run 10 mile marathons and some cases played football and engaged in martial arts and boxing.
I know, no 2 cases are the same, but how realistcly will I be able to get back to an active lifestyle in safe manor without risking a dislocation/ damage to my phrostetic HIP?
Thanking all in advance.
