11 months following hip resurfacing surgery, that's me participating in the 2011 Escape From Alcatraz triathlon. Diagnosed with osteoarthritis, plus osteopenia, in one hip, I began my rehab 3 months after surgery, doing swimming, indoor cycling and water jogging.
The first few months upon hitting the pavement, I would experience leg pain in the ITB area on the surgical side, which limited my distance. Plus, for a few minutes, I would get a post-run limp. Though I did walk, on purpose, quite a bit at Alcatraz I had neither leg pain or a post-run limp. Kudos to Dr. Gross and his excellent staff for restoring my ability to do triathlons.
