    THR Hard to know how much walking is good for me<

    Thanks so much for your insight. You're right. I did have a lot done in a short time and always had some stiffness before my injuries. I'll try the warm bath before bed and try to be patient with my recovery. Have a good weekend!

    Thanks for responding. I take a Tramadol and do ice before bed and about 2 hours later I get stiff and sore frim laying in one position and have to move to my other side. Think it's my old age and probably some osteo arthritis in my hip replacement side.

    Thanks for your reply! Maybe time will improve things and yes, we're all getting older. At least I'm up and walking good and very thankful for that! Have a good weekend!

    Hi everyone! Doing good walking and feel good in the daytime but really stiff when I go to bed at night. Have to move every couple of hours because I get sore. Once I'm up in the morning the stiffness gets better quickly. Any tips or suggestions for this or is this just how it's going to be from...

    Hi! Have an update. Went to my surgeon this week for checkup on my surgery. X ray looked good and can put full weight on hip and use a cane. No driving yet though. Weaning myself off pain pills and doing some mild muscle building exercises. Walking makes me stiff but no real pain but tend to...

    Josephine, thanks for the information. No, I was not told about it being a total joint replacement this time. Surgeon said there was bone grafting to build up the hole that happened and ball replacement but nothing about the stem. My fall caused the problem.

    I'm able to care for my pets thank goodness! They are such a comfort and my daughter comes by daily to clean cat boxes and walk my dog with hers in the evening. She lives very close by and is such a huge support! This has been a lot for her too.

    He did do it after I fell. Such an idiot! I NEVER wanted to go to pt and regret going. I didn't have any bad pain after my fall umtil later that day so didn't know I was hurt badly till later.

    Hi friends! Just an update. 12 days after surgery, minimal pain, have to use walker and minimal weight on hip for at least 5 more weeks till I see surgeon again. X ray looked good when I saw him yesterday. Saw lawyer yesterday and he thinks I have a good case against physical therapist who...

    Thanks Josephine. Seeing lawyer cause Pjysical therapist told me to have a seat but chair had wheels and he didn't warn me. It shot out behind me and I fell on my butt and damaged my hip repair.

    Seeing lawyer Friday. I'll post his opinion. I sure shouldn't have to pay for this and Medicare insurance doesn't cover everything

    Thanks so much for your support! I was in pain a month before the revision so am having much less pain now. See doctor next week so hopefully xrays will be good and I heal from this. He used a cadaver to fix the fracture site. Ever heard of this? I haven't.

    The fall in PT turns out pushed the ball in my hip socket through the acetabulum and I had to have revision surgery July 5th. Went well, home now and starting recovery all over. Not a happy camper and meeting with a lawyer Friday as this was negligence on the part of the physical therapist...

    Sorry, sent you a personal message in error. Still figuring out how to respond to questions. Physical therapist moved my leg through range of motion testing and pushed it too far I think. That night thigh, hip and knee really hurt and woke me all night. Finally some better today. I'm walking...

    They definitely should have warned me the chair was on wheels. I've been icing a lot and taking my tramadol every 4 to 5 hours with 2 Tylenol. The therapist did range of motion stretching and stopped when it was tight but still caused a lot of pain. He said I probably have adhesions and they...

    Hi! Thanks for checking on me. I was walking mostly with my cane and doing pretty good till I gave in to my doctors recommendation and went to physical therapy on Monday. I sat on a chair not realizing it was on wheels, it went back and I fell on my butt. No horrible pain but SI is probably out...
