    THR Post-op swelling-please help!

    I am now 4 months status post a Rt. Total Hip replacement and I’m wondering if other patients still have tenderness posterior to the incision site and what feels like a bruise (but it is not bruised) down the outside of that leg from hip to knee? I’m guessing it’s due to swelling, but I also...

    THR Post-op swelling-please help!

    Hi! Thank you for checking on me! I have seen a little improvement by way of a little less swelling and a little easier to sit on my “sit bones”. I work at a middle school and yesterday was our first day back since Christmas break. Yesterday went well swelling-wise. Today is tougher. Hoping...

    Thank you! I’m still dealing with the tightness due to swelling-it’s been up and down, but the surgeon did warn me that it might take 6 months. It’s just hard not want it to hurry up!

    I’m going to PT twice a week and do the routine at home every day not in PT as well. I went back to work at 8 weeks and do walk a lot there (9-10 k steps) and do a 10 min treadmill walk at home on days off. I’m icing after exercises and if I feel warmth at the site of swelling. Funny, I call...

    THR Post-op swelling-please help!

    Hi, I’m 52, female, and had my first (and only) THR on September 6th, 2019, so I’m 10 weeks post-op. I continue to have what I call a “large handful of swelling” posteriorly and below my incision. There is also swelling/tightness from hips to knees bilaterally (although not easily seen, but...
