    Revision THR Hope for 2020, Revised THR

    @Fit4Family just checking in on you. You are getting there.....patience will win the day. When do you see your OS next? The deep tissue massage sounds great. Prior to my thr, I was going to a physio therapist who had me lying on my tummy, and giving me an excellent massage on my butt...

    THR Newstart70 from 3 pins to new hip

    @Layla thank you for checking in. I feel great, and back to my regular walking and swimming. I like cycling, but will stick to the stationery bike. The OS said the joint is healing well, and I don't return until my 1 year post surgery mark. I have no pain, and I am feeling good. What more...

    Revision THR Hope for 2020, Revised THR

    Happy 3 month anniversary to you @Fit4Family . I like the idea of pool walking. I think that will be part of my summer to dos. Your path in getting a THR is similar to mine, with the hip pinnibg first, then the THR after getting avascular necrosis. The first thing the OS said to me prior to...

    THR Not going as planned

    @upser I think you need to be more patient with your recovery. I was very active prior to my surgery, and learned so much from this forum......and the one thing that hit home to me from the experts on this forum, was that the hip heals well without doing pt. I am not saying that you should...

    THR Not going as planned

    @upser I am sorry to hear about your challenges. I had my RTHR done on March 7th this year. Joint hip replacement patients are at high risk of blood clots after surgery. My OS prescribed daily self injections of Fragmin for 29 days following surgery. It also sounds like you are going back...

    THR Newstart70 from 3 pins to new hip

    Thank you @Layla and @Fit4Family I see my OS on Monday. They do a follow up xray, just to make sure all is good. I am feeling great, and almost normal again. It certainly didn't happen overnight, but slowly over time. My OS is on the conservative side, and doesn't ok driving until 3 month...

    THR Feeling of leg length difference

    Thank you @Layla for posting the link for leg length differences. @lhart I would give it time. I will be 3 months post op on the 7th of June. Up until a couple of weeks ago, I felt a little difference in my leg length. I don't feel like that anymore. The correction didn't happen over...

    THR Newstart70 from 3 pins to new hip

    Thankyou @Layla. Things are going well. In BC, when you have a total RIGHT hip replacement, you aren't allowed to drive until the orthopedic surgeon gives you clearance at the 3 month mark. I think I am ready, but if you are in an accident, the insurer will not cover it, even it it is the...

    @Fit4Family congratulations on another milestone. I am at 8 weeks, and improvements continue to happen daily. What surprises me, is some of the things you wonder when and will they be possible again, suddenly become possible once again. All the best in your continued progress, and enjoy your...

    THR Diary of my journey to happy times

    @Klassy I love reading your posts. This forum is the best prescription for success, both mentally and physically. The stairs , especially going up, was scary at first with alternate feet. Ps...my niece gave me a tip with ginger...freeze it. It is easy to peel with a potato peeler when...

    Revision THR Hope for 2020, Revised THR

    @Fit4Family I am glad to hear you are progressing nicely. I was thinking about you the other day, and besides our similarities of both having pins done first, avascular necrosis next, then finally the hip replacement, we have one more similarity. When I first went for a flying leap, landing...

    THR Newstart70 from 3 pins to new hip

    @Layla Thank you so much for the congratulatory message. I am feeling fine, and being very careful not to fall. I have been able to do some PT to get some of the strength back in my hip and leg. Hopefully it will continue in this mode. I look forward to driving again though. Another PT...

    @Layla and @Mojo333 I learned the advice from this forum, and specifically both of you. We can all learn from the advice on this forum. The key is to follow it. Have a wonderful and healing week to everyone.

    THR How long to normal gait

    @katyboom excellent advice about the gait training. I was at the pt on Friday. I brought only my cane. He asked me to walk, watching myself in the full length mirrors. I thought I was doing alright, but after seeing myself, knew I wasn't. He told me to go back to the walker, and gave me an...
