    Bilateral THR Hip Surgery Pre-Op BTHR 11/15/2022

    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.

    Bilateral THR Clarice's Hip Preop Thread

    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...

    THR Bad hips!!

    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.

    THR Tweb's Hip Recovery

    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.
