    THR Should full ROM ever be expected?

    Funny. I actually made a pre-op video of all the ways I couldn't move to demonstrate my terrible ROM. I made it because I figured a year after surgery I might forget how bad I was. Already there are a few things in the video I can do. I look forward to re-visiting my video next year to see...

    THR Should full ROM ever be expected?

    I know I already have better ROM than before. I think once I'm cleared to ride horses again I will really notice the change. Riding horses is what I do and for years it has been the most painful thing I do. Not only was riding painful, but I couldn't do it correctly because my ROM was so bad...

    THR Should full ROM ever be expected?

    @Eman85 I like your "gentle stretch theory" and I plan to do the same. To everyone that has responded, thank you so much for sharing your stories of continued improvement, it really helps. I honestly can't remember what my hip ROM was like before it went bad, its been bad for so long. I also...

    THR Should full ROM ever be expected?

    Thank you @Layla ! You provided exactly the information I was looking for. I figured I needed to adjust my expectations, and remember I'm still healing, but I was letting my mind start to worry and I don't see my surgeon for a couple more weeks to ask him. I will relax. :bath:

    THR Should full ROM ever be expected?

    Thank you @Going4fun! This is very helpful information, and I find it very interesting that you kept noticing improvements into the 2 year.

    THR 52year with hip dysplasia, THR in 5 days

    I feel your anxiety. I made my appointment for RTHR in early January for my surgery on 2/3. All I thought about in January was the surgery. I called it 'pre-op brain' because I was so distracted and in such disbelief that I was actually going to have hip replacement surgery. I'd been...

    THR Should full ROM ever be expected?

    Thank you Layla! I can't believe it has already been a month! Recovery has been going very well. Weather has been nice the past few days so the snow has melted allowing me to get outside to walk around a little which makes a big difference from doing circles in my house. Muscles get sore...

    THR Should full ROM ever be expected?

    Thanks for the word of caution. I've read a lot on this site that reiterates taking time to heal, and my surgeon has said similar words of caution. I'm taking all the advise seriously and have nothing to prove, so will continue with the baby steps. Thanks again. Happy rest of the week to you...

    THR Should full ROM ever be expected?

    Thanks @Layla for checking in! I'm doing great. Stopped using the walker on Monday and today I feel like I'm carrying my cane a lot. The swelling in my hip has gone down so much in the past few days that I can actually lift my leg high enough to walk up stairs normally today. I still rest...

    THR Should full ROM ever be expected?

    I had my surgery on Weds morning and left the recovery center on Thurs morning. Other than extreme nausea from the opiods, which I resolved by switching to Tylenol, my hip has been doing great. Looking forward to the progression, but not going to push it. Thanks for all the support getting to...

    THR Finally made an appt but now thinking twice

    Thank you @Layla! Yes, my surgery is still on and I thankfully didn't cancel. Pain and stiffness has been pretty bad lately and I am so glad I didn't listen to my second thoughts 3 weeks ago. I'm pretty nervous though, and for some reason I am feeling attached to this crappy hip and feel bad...

    THR Hip replacement February

    I'm getting my right hip replaced next week and am nervous too. A few days ago I realized how fortunate I was to be able to fix my hip. I was at the grocery store and noticed how many people, most older than me, were limping. Who knows why, but I realized I don't have to limp, I have an...

    THR Finally made an appt but now thinking twice

    Thank you to all of you for your wonderful words of encouragement and wisdom! You all make such good points, and what you say resonates with me. I have been dealing with this for so long, as @Celle states, I've slowly made accommodations for it and haven't noticed. Paying closer attention I...

    THR Finally made an appt but now thinking twice

    I've been having various degrees of hip pain for the past 5 years. Three years ago I was told by several doctors my hip had severe osteoarthritis, bone on bone, and all I could do to fix was a THR. This caught me completely off-guard as I figured it was tendonitis or just 'getting older'. I...
