    [THR] Finally life on the road to be mine<

    So visit went without any issues. X-ray shows no problem with my hip. Bone growth around the stem and cup is good. He isn't concerned about my hip. Done some checks and rom. He couldn't explain the swelling and hasn't experienced it previously with any of his patients. So just needs more time, 4...

    [THR] The Perils of Competitive Recovery

    Don't be in a rush, take your time and listen to your body. It will tell you whether you've done to much, but usually to late then. Ice and elevate everyday, regardless of whether you need it or not. You'll be back to your old self and been active again. Keep in there.

    [THR] Finally life on the road to be mine<

    Thanks wonkyhipoy, I might try a reclined position in the car and see how that feels. It' only on the longer journeys. Mid distance trips are okay. This is the benefit of the forum, hear from others experiences to similar issues. We'll see what comes from the visit Thursday week. X-ray will be...

    [THR] Recovery Time?

    Stephenhh, As everyone pointed out, ignore the you should be recovered by now. You'll be on crutches well at least 1 for up to 12 weeks and maybe more. I was thinking I should be further along too, but our bodies heal differently to each other. I don't believe or think anyone could be right...

    So been in contact with the Joint Nurse and the Surgeon, Surgeon doesn't think it is my hip. But I'm going to see him next week and have an x-ray of my hip. He'd like to see my hip swollen at the visit. So no promises and see how it goes.

    Pain has a way of stressing the body, the last 3 yrs have been nothing but pain for me. So to be free from it, is a joy. I'd recommend it to anyone who is in pain and trying to decide. Have the op and enjoy life again.

She done her tests to see what muscles were weak. Ended up putting kinesio tape on my scar. It helped. I told her if I grab...

    I know you said Cork, but try the Whitfield clinic in Waterford. Specialist clinic and good surgeons. I had mine done there, Patrick Carton. Surgery was posterior, the scar is behind you and you won't notice it. My scar is healed nicely and comments are it is a nice looking scar. Don't put off...
