    [THR] Fast Recovery

    Hey Wilkep Regardless of how quick and well your recovery is going (congratulations by the way!) bear in mind that the hip surgery is quite invasive so all the muslces surrounding the joint will have been damaged in order to put the new joint in so that can take a while to get the strength...

    Strengthening tips for thr

    Hi Angie I am a big advocate of physio and hydro. It takes a long time to build up the base strength and can be quite frustrating getting to that point, i found some of the exercises felt like i was getting no where, but with hindsight they are so important. I would advise you to go for as...

    [THR] Post op questions

    Re: 90 degree rule and kneeling Hey Omruds Like everyone else has said best to listen to the advice from your consultant surgeon. One bit to add though, the advice can sometimes be a little (!) conservative - my consultant was adamant that the 90 degree rule applied to me for the rest of my...

    motorcycle is waiting

    Hey Jimmy From my experience, it's not important how long it takes you to get back on a bike, it's the fact you are focused on getting back on the bike that is the important thing. Take your time and listen to your body and keep that goal of riding, and if you don't achieve it in the...

    Just now getting scared

    Hi Kaaper I think it is perfectly normal, anxiety is a normal reaction and something most of us, if not all of us have been through on here. For me it was fear of the unknown really. I was the same going to the hospital by myslef which wasn't ideal, just try and draw on the positive aspects...
