    THR Mar1gold's recovery thread

    Hello @Josephine - I have now seen my hospital PT and a chiropractor and they both say my stiffness and pain when going from sitting to standing is due to muscle weakness. I am tiny any way and have lost more muscle. They both say I have to strengthen the muscles. This makes sense to me...

    THR Mar1gold's recovery thread

    Hi @GrannyC - thank you for your message, so sorry for late reply. I am just over 5 months now and I cannot see that if I do nothing I am helping. Surely you have to strengthen the muscles. Apparently I have been told my pain - standing from sitting - is muscle weakness, I am under 50k and...

    THR Mar1gold's recovery thread

    @Josephine - I just wanted to ask you opinion again. I have had a really bad few days. The pain the last 2 nights has kept me awake all night almost, I took co-codamol, didn't really touch it. It is like shin splint pain down the shins (both shins!) Numbness and sore pins and needles...

    THR Mar1gold's recovery thread

    Just to ask, did you have any further guidance how I can treat the trapped sciatica nerve, piriformis syndrome after my THR? Have you come across purple blotchy, sometimes warm, front of both knees when standing, at 20 weeks. Had it for a while now. Really don't think it is an infection. What...

    THR Mar1gold's recovery thread

    Hi @Josephine, thank you for your reply. I could not open the chart image. The pain I have is like a stabbing pain deep in the middle of my butt/operated leg especially when I stand from sitting or even stand from raising my legs 10 mins. I have to stand tall and wait until the pain eases...
