I was diagnosed with LCPD at 4 after a congenital hip dislocation. Im now 46 and have been very physically active including running a marathon a few years back. Now I just stick to walking and cycling.
Im in a fair bit of pain now with osteoarthritis and a bit fed up with it all. My doctor has told me that due to the malformation of my hip he doesn't want to do a replacement until it literally collapses. These were his words! I don't think I can wait anymore though.
Anyway my question is to those who like to walk, cycle, weight lift etc who have had a hip replacement. How did you find it afterwards in terms of your ability to workout? What changed, what didn't? I guess Im scared about how limited I might be and how long a replacement might last.
Any stories of post replacement exercise experiences would be great.
Cheers - N
