Hi @Mgbwm28, you will be fine, trust me, my biggest aide was the grabber and shoe horn to get my footwear on.
After 2 weeks you will be surprisingly self sufficient, best of luck from another double hippie.
Hi Clarice, had my Bilateral 20th May 2021, quite a bit apprehensive prior to surgery but luckily only had 2 weeks to dwell about it, best decision I have ever made, but don’t be too hasty going back riding both hips will still be very raw for a few months they need time for your muscles to...
Hi @Zoebichon, as a fellow Bilateral Hippie I am totally amazed with your recovery, I thought I was out of hospital fast after being let out on my third day, I too was walking regularly up too about 6 weeks pre op but having to stop due to my left hip giving way on me and growth of spurs on both...
Good afternoon fellow Hippies, I am celebrating my one year anniversary for Bilateral THR and because they are so well behaved we are treating my hips to 9 days in sunny Kos in Greece for some well deserved rest and sunshine. ☀️
Hi everyone, 5 month anniversary today and feeling good. Back to work tomorrow so fingers crossed all will be ok, don’t think I will be climbing electricity poles for a while, but you never know perhaps I will surprise myself.
Hi everybody, just a quick catchup just passed my 4 month anniversary for my Bilateral THR and must say everything thing is very good in the hips department, keeping on top of my walking but grounded the last week due to covid-19 that has hit myself and the rest of my family so 10 days of...
Hi Hippymomma, I still have stiffness in both hips first thing in the morning after my double hip replacement over 14 weeks ago but it’s a discomfort I will gladly take at this stage of my recovery.
Keep going you are doing fine.
Hi, I am 11 weeks post op, walking 3 - 4 miles a day ok, but having to concentrate going around tight corners having to force the turn like a beginner forcing a snowplough turn.
I personally can’t see you skiing for next season there are so much soft tissues that will take time to heal and bed in.
Hi @skigirl i am glad I had both mine done the same time one recovery but baring in mind it is 2 major operations and I had mine done late Thursday afternoon and was back home Sunday morning which was very early post op.
I also tried using walking sticks 2 weeks post op but soon regretted it...
Hi @Tweb, sorry to hear you are struggling with sleeping on your replaced hip side.
I had both hips done 10 weeks ago and can honestly say I am quite happy laying on either side but slight discomfort turning over, possibly I have a bit more padding on my hips.
Look after yourself.
Hi all, 10 week anniversary today post op, must say everything going well doing my daily walks anything up to 4 miles slightly sore afterwards, and also popping sensation only in my right hip nothing in the left, no concerns really enjoying the current heatwave.
So much for the the Mr brave guy 15 st plus, I have
Had a remarkable week plus with my recovery visits to the beach walking, visitors calling but today few beers with my mates watching Wales playing footie against Italy in the Euroe’s finally took its toll on me not so much pain but...
@ShipsIntheNight I do sympathies with you, I am 25 days post op for Bilateral THR I too found it impossible to sleep more than a few hours, what with frequent loo visits upto 5 times a night I reduced that by not having the ice packs too close too too my inner thighs and bladder area.
