    THR Second THR has been harder than the first

    So it's now five weeks since my TRHR and I'm happy with my progress. I'm still using a walking stick but have been able to walk for 30 minutes non-stop each day this week (albeit on flat ground) and on one day even achieved 10,000 (total) steps for the day. I'm continuing with the physio...

    THR Second THR has been harder than the first

    THR on 10 May

    Having my right hip replacement on 10 May after having left one replaced in August 2018. It's not as painful as the first one despite walking like a duck. I'm more nervous about the idea of having both hips replaced than I was about having the first. Any suggestions?
