Should I be doing vigorous exercise 1 year post total hip replacement (ceramic on ceramic)

Posted by Ishbel

I am a 44 year old woman and would like to train for a 10k race this year. I enjoy going to the gym, spinfit and body attack classes. Don't know whether I am doing the right thing and would love to hear professional or learned others advice.

Hard to answer that one, Ishbel. Definitely more pressure on your new hip in any bounding exercises. I admire your courage and enthusiasm about next steps, but highly recommend getting the ok from your surgeon and a physical therapist before training for a 10K. Better safe than sorry!
