    THR TomT in recovery

    Thank you Layla, wow I can't believe time is flying by so fast. Since last month I have made some improvements for sure, but just like that funny recovery curve shared on this forum i've had some set backs but overall still improving. I did end up getting new shoes that are more proper for my...

    Thanks Greg after 3 months and experiencing so much recovery I sometimes forget that I still have some way to go before I'm fully healed

    THR 3 months post-op, & still have glute & thigh problems

    I'm about 3 months out from my surgery and I'm having the same issue you mentioned about sitting, after sitting for a while I get so stiff when I stand up that I also limp for the first 5 or so steps but after that I'm able to walk normally.

    THR TomT in recovery

    Wow thanks Layla, I was wondering what I was going to do about that. I even considered just going in to walmart or target and getting different sizes of the same shoe, but that sounds like a much better option. I'll probably order them tonight so that I can have them for next week.

    THR TomT in recovery

    Hey thanks for the suggestion guys, you're right I looked at the bottom of my shoes today and sure enough the bottom of the right shoe looks to have worn differently. I plan to buy some new shoes as soon as possible. My issue with the shoes not fitting is a bit more strange than that. Because my...

    THR TomT in recovery

    Thanks Layla I can't believe it's been two months already. This week is the first week I've returned to field work. I'm a government auditor and I've been doing online work for the last two weeks but this week I decided to venture out into the field. I didn't even take my cane with me. I'm...

    THR Hip Recovery Stiffness at 8 weeks

    Hello and welcome, a mod should be by shortly to greet you. I just want to thank you because you have just typed out exactly the symptoms I'm having at about 2 months out from my THR on my right leg. When I get up from sitting I have a very stiff first step that is kind of a big limp and as I...

    THR TomT in recovery

    Thanks Jaycey, its just a little worrying because right now I'm actually sitting on the couch icing my left hip and taking ibuprofen for the left hip when my right hip was the one replaced. I'm just worried that i'm doing something that is going to cause arthritis to form in the left hip also.

    THR TomT in recovery

    Hey guys today I'm feeling pain in my left hip joint, did any of you experience this during your recovery? I did ask my surgeon when I first saw him if there were anything wrong with my left hip and he said no. I'm assuming maybe the pain because my gait has changed since the replacement but the...

    THR Heel Lift for Sandals?

    Mountainlover I'm going through basically the exact symptoms you're having. I had a LLD of about half an inch and a pelvic tilt. My doctor told me that walking with out the lift would cause my pelvis to readjust. I think most people on here have been told something similar. I wouldn't stress...

    THR Heel Lift for Sandals?

    I agree with what others have said, my doctor even attempted to make my right leg longer during the THR but said it was still a milometer shorter than the left one, however I could swear it felt longer than my left leg and still kind of does. I think you should give it sometime to adjust if your...

    THR TomT in recovery

    Thanks guys for all your replies, its interesting to know that the implant is about as heavy as the bone they took out. I'm the kind of person that will get in the pool and float on my back and sun bathe so its very easy for me to stay above the water with out movement but i'll find out this...

    THR TomT in recovery

    Hello guys, Sorry its been a long time since i've posted. I've just been concentrating on doing my walks everyday and for the most part i've stayed away from social media and my computer all together, mainly because I knew my leave was ending soon and I just wanted to try to relax as much as...

    THR TomT in recovery

    Thanks guys I can't believe it's been a month already. My path has surely looked like that scrambled progress arrow but definitely much better than week one. I came to the realization that this gonna take longer than a month or two for me to feel normal and to walk normally and I'm starting to...
