    THR What’s Normal

    I went for 2nd week checkup today. Took an x-ray, Dr. said everything looked good. I told him PT was killing me, had copies of all the exercises and could work on them all day, instead do cramming them into one hr. He said I could toss them all except the side kicks, and just walk. The hip...

    Thanks for listening, the encouraging words, and answering my questions. And, speaking of questions, is it normal to have the most discomfort at night.

    PT is not info only. Side kicks, back kicks, a sit down walker, sliding heel, hang bad leg off table to stretch it out. Expected to do two sets of ten each, twice daily. My opinion is they’re crazy or they think I am. Let’s just say twice a week is more than enough. Once I get home, it’s...

    THR What’s Normal

    Please add my name to the September Sapphire’s 2019 Hip Recovery Club. Surgery date: September 30, 2019. Having read and followed the rest, elevate, ice, and meds as prescribed recommendations, how soon is too soon to reduce pain meds? PT began 4 days post op, hip and leg aches all the way...
