    THR RTHR Recovery - UK - 65 year old woman

    Hi @Gloucestergal65, Congratulations on upcoming hip-anniversary! That’s so excited and once you pass the rough patches in hip surgery, the recovery flies by. I can’t believe I’ll be 6 months post-op in a few days! In my part of the US so many people have been getting sick! I’ve had myself, a...

    Hip Arthroscopy FAI Surgery Round Two—All Done!

    CONTINUED Fast forward to Thursday afternoon I was having horrible cortisone flares all day. Because of my anxiety, I called my doctor and asked him if we could get the pelvic MRI done before the new year. He agreed as long as we waited for the cortisone to settle and not affect what may or...

    Wowzer friends, what a long and complicated past three days. I had surgery yesterday to have my appendix removed—trust me, I’m still in shock also, but let’s back track so that I can give you the entire story.

    Hip Arthroscopy FAI Surgery Round Two—All Done!

    Hi @springs12! Congratulations on your new replacement—so happy for you! How are you feeling? I’m doing okay, to be honest. I’m incredibly exhausted today after working a long Black Friday shift. My hip was very sore yesterday and this morning I forgot my phone, had to turn my car around...

    Hip Arthroscopy FAI Surgery Round Two—All Done!

    Good Morning All, I haven’t posted in a little while and am feeling a little blue. My right hip has been a bit of a mess lately and I’m not sure exactly where to turn. To start, I think I got at least a couple of days relief from the cortisone injection, but it took at least a week or two to...

    Hip Arthroscopy FAI Surgery Round Two—All Done!

    @Layla thank you! So far, I haven’t had a lot of relief from the injection. I think the front of my hip has calmed a little, making the pain in my groin more noticeable. I forget how long it took the last cortisone injection to take effect,

    Hip Arthroscopy FAI Surgery Round Two—All Done!

    Good Morning, Hope everyone is doing well on this beautiful (and shockingly mild!) Fall day! Welcome to October! So I made a big (and probably premature) leap back into yoga today. I did my first yin class since before my surgery. While the doctor and I have yet to discuss my return to...

    THR Proud of myself, it feels like a massive achievement!

    Hi @Hipopapotamus Just wanted to drop by and give you a quick hello! Not to be repetitive, but I think emotional ups and downs are a normal part of the ride for this journey. I’m 3 months out and I still have my daily highs and lows. I think having highs and lows aren’t a bad thing. I think...

    THR Had my 2nd hip put in yesterday.

    Congratulations on having your second hip done! Easier said than done, but try to be patient with this recovery. I learned this year that no two recoveries are the same, even if the surgeries are! Wishing you the best on your journey!
