Any Catheletes out there still working out at an advanced level after a total hip replacement? I was diagnosed 5 years ago with OA in my right hip and was told a replacement would be in my future. I have been managing it over the years by giving up running, doing PT, wearing orthotics and resting more during flare ups. A recent X-ray revealed that I'm now bone on bone and the pain is getting much worse. I had hoped to push it off longer as I'm only 56 and concerned that the life span of an artificial hip may not last with my level of activity. My orthopedic surgeon advised that I can do pretty much anything after a THR except running. When I mentioned I like to do kickboxing, step, plyos, box jumps tuck jumps etc., he said most should be fine as long as it is not sustained repetitive movement as in running. I do not want to give these things up!! So, I was hoping to get out of my pity party by hearing from others who have (or know someone who has) successfully returned to fitness after THR. Thanks!
