  • Interesting to catch up with everyone's stories and rehab, keep the chin up and stay positive, and don't overdo it.    
  • Triple 07, I had my op back in feb,  Edinburgh , my surgeon was paul gaston, and he's oe a great job,  unfortunately my other hip is is now symptomatic so looks like I'll be getting the other one done.  
  • Triple07, who was your surgeon in Glasgow?      
  • Moozer are you putting ice on it, and have you had your stitches removed yet. make sure you massagage the area with e45 or vaseline as it can become hypersensitive. All the tissues will be starting to knit back together and this may cause some dis…
  • Loverunning: Consult went well, he was amazed at how well i was mobilising, told me to continue rehab as im doing and all should be ok, i asked about running and he said to come back to him in 5 months and we could discuss it then, it would be silly…
  • All the best moozer,  let us know how your post op recovery goes, and use what painkillers your offered, painfree is good for the mind.......   Loverunning- good article you wrote , im due back at surgeon on 7th March, so i'll see what he has to…
  • Moozer- As far as i'm aware its all to do with avoiding hyper flexing of the hip, and its not high impact.
  • Loverunning, everyone's response is different, to a GA and invasive procedures, still think it was bad practice they never gave you spinal when awake, for exactly the worry you had when you woke up, I have felt pretty tired for the last week, not …
  • Love running- i had a spinal last week for my surgery, seemingly the spinal helps with post op pain and recovery although surprised that you were asleep when you got it, the point of giving you one is to make sure it's worked before your off to slee…
  • Hi folks, thought id let you all know i had my consultation with with Mr Gaston, and i asked to be put on waiting list for surgery, thankfully no further degeneration from 3 years past, i was told theres a 9-12 week waiting list so looking like earl…
  • I read someones blog abput post op recovery, interesting, certainly gives you an insight into whats going to happen to you and your body.   I think the word thats springs to mind is pain regardless of how good/ bad a recovery you make, and tbh i…
  • Has or does anyone suffer symptoms of your knee feeling unstable when you are symptomatic?   something ive felt recently and is quite unnerving.
  • Time to check back in folks.   I've taken the plunge and asked to be refered back to my surgeon in Edinburgh, dont know how long I'll wait. I think its time to get this sorted and try to get some normality back in my Hip! I dont think my boss …
  • Good News op went well LR, I'm still swithering as to whether I go for my op. Keep us posted with your rehab.
  • Hi folks have been keeping an eye on thethread from afar, a question i was going to ask. Has any one one had any relief from Physiotherapy, i totally appreciate that the problem is a mechanical one but the thought had crossed my mind. Cheers
  • Davo, been symptomatic for over 5 years but only diagnosed  2 years ago.   How long are /were you expected to be off work for, im aware the the physicall activity is a prolonged rehab programme, to be honest i would give up running if told,  i l…
  • Davo thanks for that, Like yourelf im in an active job(Air ambulance), this is where the difficulty lies, it can interfere at times when you need to think and act fast, a bit like yourself, the flip side is when i deal with critical incidents it can…
  • Hi everyone, i just found this thread, its a blessing.   I have a labral tear in my hip which gives me pain which i can only describe as gnawing for 2 to 3 days at a time, i have limited range of movement in my hip which has been prominent for y…
  • No long winded answer from, but yes you could, my times were of similar to yours. I followed a garmin plan and ran a half marathon around about 8 weeks before my race, and I rescheduled my plan as my half time gave me a marathon time of 3h20. If y…
  • Nat Yad: check this page http://www.physioadvisor.com.au/11044650/foam-roller-exercises-lower-body-physioadvisor.htm I've used a roller for general myofascial release.
  • Foam roller V's Physio stripping my ITB, I know what I would choose.
  • Doug,  I work for the ambulance service and often i attend "calls "that you were witness to. We never seem to think about the innocent people that come across these terrible incidents, i can fully understand how you are feeling as my best friends w…
  • TBH if your well hydrated you shouldn't need to drink for the first hour of running, i do half marathons and dont take on anything,  However when i ran edinburgh i took on Lucozade at every station(due to the heat), i had gels which i started to tak…
  • RR I'm actually in Uphall, i ventured out with a friend today and my normal route is 18inches deep as there is very little through traffic, that  made for fun, ended up on the normal paths an roads, that i normally try to avoid. 50 mins though so i …
  • RIPP: Thanks for your helpfull comment.
  • This is my third year, it's a great run, don't worry about the organisation it will be fine, i can honestly say that i've never had any issues with the race. The sign in on saturday last year was a bit of a scrum but everyone got there in the end. …
  • Trevor, you havent said what level of running you're at, But, i like you had trained hard for my first marathon(edinburgh) this year. i had been bothered by shin splints from mid march, foolishly i carried on(instead of resting)  and adjusted my tr…
  • I have these, they dont bother me.
  • My first post in this thread. yesterday was my first marathon and after running with an injury for the last 6-7 weeks and only running twice in the last fortnight, i would have been gratefull to finish. Then the heat on top of that filled me with f…
