I am a 54 yo male, scheduled for THR on right hip in June. I note that most of the thread posts are on jogging; I hope it won't be out of context if I asked people's experience in racquet sports after a THR. I am a very active badminton (in winter) and tennis (in summer) player. I continue to play with my hip problems at the present time and looking forward to my first THR. I find that my hip is really sore after the activity and have to put ice on it. My ROM is also very limited and I find myself not being able to play as well as I used to. In most cases, I find myself limping to get a ball - perhaps I should quit and wait for the operation. My question is, has anyone on this forum continued to play tennis/badminton after a THR and their experience. What is the life expectancy of the implant if you're active? Mine will be a ceramic head on high density poly, using the minimally invasive technique. Thanks in advance!
