    THR Minifab - 30M - LTHR Recovery Thread

    Well team, I've hit 8 weeks officially on Friday and two months in a few days since my surgery and I couldn't be happier at this point. My goal was always by Canadian Thanksgiving (7 week post op) I wanted to be in better shape than pre-op and I am happy to report that's the case. I took a...

    THR Minifab - 30M - LTHR Recovery Thread

    Hit the 6 week window last Friday! After week 4 I noticed a big increase in overall energy levels, and week 5 I gained full independence back (meaning no walking aid). Two weekends ago, I went out with some friends for a picnic + a couple of ciders - nice to get out of the house (I used my...

    THR Do I really need a THR?

    I played a full 18 holes of golf 36 hours prior to my THR! 6 weeks out, and so far very happy I had the surgery. Did a 5k walk on Saturday with no aids, riding the stationary bike only difference from before is no pain. Had the same thoughts as you pre-surgery, but timing couldn’t of been...

    Thanks @Layla. Hard to believe how quickly time goes and it’s already been a month, feels like yesterday I was nervous for the surgery. Last week progressed well + had a good weekend, outside of my dog getting sprayed by a skunk and bringing the stink inside... :eeeuw: Walking straighter and...

    THR So scared.

    Hi @littlesun, 100% know those emotions and thoughts as I went through them 2 weeks ago for my LTHR. In fact, I was golfing (with a cart) just 36 hours prior to my surgery. I had doubt I was ”bad enough” for my surgery, and thought I should push it off. I did the Covid screening + test 48 hours...

    THR Minifab - 30M - LTHR Recovery Thread

    Happy Tuesday everyone! My mantra for the past few days has been heel-to-toe, heel-to-toe. Hard to believe my surgery was only 11 days ago; feeling so great and best of all the constant hip pain is gone!! Overall, had a pretty good weekend - continuing my regime of icing and walking around the...

    THR Minifab - 30M - LTHR Recovery Thread

    Yay 1 week post-op! :yahoo: Thanks @Layla definitely noticing it getting a little better each day; you’re right just need to give it times to adjust. I am focusing on heel to toe walking, twisting my pelvis back to normal, and putting weight on both sides equally. It seems to be helping...

    THR Minifab - 30M - LTHR Recovery Thread

    I am doing a couple of exercises the OS provided prior to discharge (not bridge or clam shell); and on the lying down heel slide my leg rotates out instead of coming straight back. This is the same as pre-surgery where it would rotate out. Any recommendations on how to get it to come straight...

    THR Minifab - 30M - LTHR Recovery Thread

    Really good sleep the last 2 nights, straight through the night in bed without a pillow under my knees as I did the second night! Pain has been almost non-existent, I keep forgetting to take my Tylenol so I’ve set an alarm in my phone now so that I remember. Would rather stay ahead of it + keep...

    THR Minifab - 30M - LTHR Recovery Thread

    Hi Everyone, Thanks @Jaycey for the pillow under the knees trick, it worked well last night in bed and I had my best sleep yet - at least 8 hours. I did wake up around 3am and was awake for a bit, must have been all the naps I had through the day, so I just played on my phone for 45 minutes...

    THR Minifab - 30M - LTHR Recovery Thread

    Overall, pretty good day today given I just had major surgery 48 hours ago. Slept a fair bit in the recliner, did a few walks around the house, and consistent icing. A couple friends stopped by who are both doctors as said everything looks good!:spin: Little bit of a post op fever last night...
