    Thank you, I finally managed the steps. Now can get outside yay. Although the going down on bad leg that has no weight bearing is still freaking me out.

    @Layla thank you. Steps are next challenge. Then I can get outside to my yard. Surgeon switched my appointment April 17 to phone appointment. I will go have xrays in two weeks closer to home. I’m sure all are switching to phone appointments. stay home say safe

    Revision THR Odd sensations after hip hardware revision

    @janellej delighted for you. when I had my right hip replaced, it made that leg longer, it did settle a bit but I too used heel lifts they were great. The ones in the pic are the ones I loved as they were adjustable and didn't move especially in sandals. got them on amazon.

    Not icing much anymore. PT has given me lots of tips, I just panic and then freeze. I’ve read it’s the bodies way of protecting itself but instead of switching off it goes into overdrive and continues like a loop. So I need to break the cycle. I think I start off good with non weight bearing but...

    Thanks all. Ok let’s see first thing was yes, my surgeon said there Must have been a fracture there all along and me putting full weight on it did it in completely.

    Thanks for the replies, surgery was Jan 25th am doing a little physio. I did contact my surgeon who just got back to me saying only to use the walker and only 50% weight bearing. If pain continues to get worse to call and he will have an X-ray done.

    Pt went well, there is a definite 1.5 cm difference in leg length. He advised using half inch lift in shoe. Pelvis is a little bit rolled forward on left side. Gave me some new exercises to do. Never mentioned heel to toe, when walking just not to think about it and just walk, continue continue...

    THR Subluxation<<

    @roo28 , hi too I did permanent makeup here in ca, and I would require a letter of release from your surgeon if it was me. So definitely contact him. Depending on what state you are in the requirements are different.
