    THR Getting back to normal

    To some of you hippies that have had enough time to heal completely. Can I expect to someday get back to the point where I once was in life, will I be able to tie my shoes, cut my own toenails and sleep on my side again? Hope so! At what point (how many months) may that occur? Thanks.

    THR Getting back to normal

    BTW, in general, from everyone; when would be the most likely time after surgery (no swelling, no bruising, etc.) to stop the iceing?

Before surgery, heat has been my best friend, I would hate to lose my best friend and exchange it for an enemy, but it looks like that’s what I will have to do. Has...

    THR Aquatic therapy

    I am also wondering about this; I’m sure it is a good idea to get pre approved from your insurance company before THR, but is this commonly what is done or do most people just do the surgery without prior approval? Thanks for replies.

    THR Aquatic therapy

    Has anyone had aquatic therapy, either before or after surgery? If so, I would appreciate your comments on its effectiveness. Also, if after surgery, how long after surgery is it OK to get in the pool? Thanks.

    THR Referred Pain

    Thanks to all who have taken the time to give me their thoughts, I really appreciate it. I feel better now thinking that it may be just pain caused from my hips. Looking forward to my two surgery dates!!

    I have not had surgery yet, I will have RTHR in January and LTHR in March. Sometimes my knees hurt, not when walking or exercising, but when lying in bed, feels like the pain is around the front or on the kneecap.

    Yes, I feel that I am pretty well prepared. I'm hoping the hip does not get too much worse between now and January.
