    Hip Resurfacing 5 Weeks Pain<

    Just had xrays done to confirm my recovering hip can handle my next surgery as scheduled...waiting to hear! The more I move the better I feel but my job is sedentary so weekdays are tough. Thanks!!!

    Hip Resurfacing Flexion issues

    My advice! Don’t push it! You will gradually get there. I pushed a little too hard after my hip resurfacing and at five weeks post op ended up with a fractured femur! I’m at six months hip fracture repair and still struggling with stiffness, limping and pain. I am getting ready for my other...

    I was supposed to have been able to have left hip resurfacing done in December but that’s on hold. Thank you. And right about fracture being a complication of hip resurfacing not replacement. Sorry to have confused you. Wendys

    Hip Resurfacing 5 Weeks Pain<

    Just ordered a wheelchair today from Amazon. You are so right...need to be a bit more mobile to get out of this funk. It’s so nice out here in SC and I’m inside all the time. Thank you for all your support and encouragement! @Layla have you ever heard of post fracture being no activity or...

    @Jaycey I started Keto shortly after the second surgery. Down 11 pounds so far. I heard elimination of sugar and carbs help alleviate inflammation. Surgeon just said to swim, walk very minimal and that’s it...no other PT. He said I’m still healing from hip resurfacing and a fracture on top...

    Thank you @Mojo333 I am feeling very depressed and alienated by life. Things that I enjoyed before I cannot do. I know this will pass and I know it could be worse but I’m still frustrated.

    Hi @ljpviper He told me I could gradually increase weight bearing up to 50% of my body weight but very limited walking and NO PT or exercises of any kind. I just never had a Dr tell me to not do exercises.

    Everything I read on line is how important physical therapy is for hip fracture recovery....is it weird that Dr Gross told me to do nothing?

    Hip Resurfacing 5 Weeks Pain<

    Well....I had my 6 week follow up today and received very disappointing news. I have to continue the use of a walker for at least 3 more months. No weight bearing any more than 50% max in next two months. I go back in a month for more X-Rays and another f/u. Also I’m not to do any unnecessary...

    Hi @Layla - I go tomorrow to surgeon for 6 week follow up and xray. My left hip is on FIRE so they are going to do a steroid injection in that hip. I’m doing pretty well with work. I go home when I feel it’s too much. Luckily have a very great employer. I’ll update tomorrow once I see how all...

    THR Groin pain after surgery

    @Gmomma15 only 4 weeks out from revision to hip resurfacing. I see Dr Gross on 7/30. Can’t wait to see how my fracture is healing. I went back to work for five hours a day Mon-Thurs this week. Today was a first...a friend took me to a movie and out to lunch. Home now and very exhausted...

    Hip Resurfacing 5 Weeks Pain<

    Thank you!!! I worked 20 hrs this week and most of that was sitting in a very comfortable chair. Only real effort was getting to the bathroom and back....it’s a big office. 5 hrs each day was enough. My daughter came in for the week to drive me to and from work. I still haven’t driven...

    Hip Resurfacing 5 Weeks Pain<

    Layla, Fit4Family, Izabel - I’m doing well. I had a week of company here and enjoyed the distraction but felt sorry for myself a few times. Unable to truly play with my grandson like I wanted to but I just focused on the fact that next time I see him I’ll be able to. My incision is close to...
