Hi. I'm a 46 year old male approaching the 5 month mark after surgery for total right hip replacement - 5 months on May 15. Things have been going well. I feel strong, can walk as far as I want - but do experience some discomfort on occasion (especially after sitting for an extended period), have been riding a bicycle, etc. Still going to PT twice a week. I feel like I get something out of it and they've been great about challenging me. My problem is that I feel like I've leveled off, or even gone back a bit. I have pain in the and groin joint area. Still using ice for relief along with occasional Advil. Seems like I've been sleeping on my right side a lot (probably because I couldn't before surgery). The soft tissue is sore in the morning, and I still have some spots neat the back of my butt area that are sore to the touch (if I press on it or sit for a long time). Seems like even my incision is still a bit sore. My PT's tell me this is totally normal and that the soft tissue/muscle pain I experience is due to increased activity. I spoke to the doc and he said pretty much the same thing. I'm a little paranoid and am wondering if anyone else experienced issues like this. I feel more sore now than I did a month ago. Anyone?
