    THR 3 weeks post op and I have regrets

    9 weeks post op I had X-rays taken yesterday which showed no loosening which is great. I am having on and off mid Thigh pain and my OS said it’s End of stem pain. He said the prosthetic is tapered at the end on purpose because that’s where it meets up with my real bone and right now they are...

    I am 8 weeks and 2 days post op… I’m not really sure what to think or what’s going on. To be fair ….My quadricep on my surgical side has been very tight since day 1. For the first 5 weeks I didn’t “do much “ just rested. I would say my activity has increased over the last 3 weeks but I am...

    Good morning… From day one The only hip precautions I was given by my OS was don’t pivot on surgical leg and don’t put my leg behind and turn my foot me as in a yoga pose. But I chose to do all hip precautions until my 8 week post op appointment. So in two weeks I will get X-rays and Ibqm...

    I found a cane to be too wobbly so I purchased a four prong cane and that is working much better for me. I feel more stable and better balance. I am definitely not ready to go without a cane yet. I tried a few steps without it and I was limping.

    I definitely had the post op blues but I didn’t even know there was such a thing until finding this forum. I do feel a lot better and it is from all of the wonderful people on this forum and their kind words, encouragement and feedback . :)

    She never once asked me how I’m doing, do you need anything etc She did show any sign of compassion She just kept shaking her head and laughing because I had a walker. She said walkers are for old people. I am trying to switch to a cane. I have been practicing in the house. PT right now is...

    Yah that was not a fun moment for me I do have a question I’m hoping someone can answer for me. Why does it hurt/why is it uncomfortable to sit in a regular chair such as a dining room chair and when does that pain or discomfort go away?
