    Thanks everyone. I’m kinda ansey sitting around so much so I guess I may be pushing myself. I initially decided to have my LTHR due to sharp groin pain. I am still having that. I thought it was supposed to disappear? This is disappointing. I’m now 22 days out post-op. Thanks guys. So nice to...

    THR Best way to ice

    Hello. My cellulitis is clearing up slowly. So much less pain. I had a question. Tomorrow will be 3 weeks post-op and I cannot step up steps yet with LTHR. Not even one with left foot yet. Does this come naturally over time or do I need PT to strengthen the muscle? Also, I was wondering if I...

    Hello again. How long does one stay at this high level of Tylenol. The Surgeon’s PA said to cut back but I wonder if Tramadol or Tylenol is worse for the liver? Thanks everyone for the suggestions abs feedback. Have a great day! As I said, I’m 18 data post-op for LTHR.

    Another quickie question. Surgeon’s PA gave me an order for PT. I am wondering when I should go there, especially in light of having developed cellulitis? I’m now 18 days out from LTHR. Thanks everyone. Prayers for a beautiful day for each of us! ☺️♥️

    Thank you. Yes, the surgeon’s PA sent me for a vascular ultrasound. No blood clot. I called my PCP to go see her after I’m done taking 7 days worth of antibiotics. This is my 2nd full day on them. No improvement yet. Still hot and red on both sides of my foot and ankle. Swelling is down some...

    Good morning everyone. I’m so glad to be here and able to read your posts and the responses. I am wondering why I got so much swelling around my ankle, which developed into cellulitis.

    Went to Dr. today. Saw PA. He thinks I have cellulitis around my ankle area. Going on an antibiotic. They also sent me to have a vascular ultrasound to check fir a blood clot. There was no clot.

    THR Best way to ice

    Good morning everyone. I’m still having a great deal of pain and swelling in my foot and ankle on my LTHR. I’m now 15 days out, not needing a cane or walker, once I stand and stretch the stiff muscles out. I don’t have a grabber and I sent off for 4 of the Flexi Kold gel pacs. They are good but...

    Thanks ncarlson. I was doing really well. Walking without a walker or cane. I was going out some then I have taken a step backwards. My PT said to go out every day. Now I’m getting a shooting pain in my groin area and can barely walk. I’m not sure what happened or what to do at this point. I’m...

    I haven’t had wet material on my thighs. More on the side where the incision is! More icing there. I did receive my gel pacs today abs they are wonderful. Pricey but well worth it..
