I am curious I had LTHR last of May and while doing rehab 2x a day at hospital , I really was surprised at how fast the knee people seemed to be healing and bending you know all the exercises they have us do walking ext.......... I always thought the knee surgery would be quickest to recover from, But after reading all the knee stories and swelling and icing I believe the knee surgery is harder to recover from. Thinking of the bending of the knee and all the daily stress & they would have to measure the degree of flexing Both is major surgery both has alot of healing time neither is a walk in the park When I had my hip replacement the fear of hip poping out or falling weighed on my mine daily /hourly .I am having to remember heel toe heel toe to try to stop limping. I dont have heat in my hip ect..... I know neither is a picnic but for me Im thinking now knee replacement has to be harder to recover from . What is your opinion :sct: I was just wondering what you guys think .
