    [THR] The sequel of Sequin 1998<

    I have a ton of pt exercises to do, and ice and rest for the bursa. The stiffness when I first wake up is brutal, and my feet have completely flattened, ugh. :blackcloud:

    [THR] Second THR has been harder than the first

    I hear you with the differences in hips. While my right hip had zero cartilage, my hospital stay was longer, they used staples. My left hip started to complain 2 weeks later. I had the left hip done 11 months later. They used a superpath technique. I was only in the hospital overnight. No...

    While I don't share the pain, I share the frustration of a slow recovery with a lot of detours. We shall overcome! :ice:

    Thanks Layla...I wish it was happy....the snapping of my hip has yet to settle. While not always painful, it is always annoying. The OS said at the last appt to see him if it does not settle...looks like I will see him on the 26th. :gaah:

    Thanks for the reply! I had a horrible nightmare last night that caused my to fall out of bed :yikes: I hit my head really hard on the bed frame. I came to on my left side. It seems fine, I think I'd know if something popped. I will mention it to my OS on Wed anyway.

    [THR] The sequel of Sequin 1998<

    Found this: It occurs when the pelvis rotates backward, causing the front to rise and the back to drop. It is caused by lengthening of the hip flexors and shortening of the hip extensors. As with anterior pelvic tilt, sitting for long periods of time, inactivity, and poor posture all contribute...

    My massage therapist said that my pelvis was rotated, and she was able to set it the right way. I think all the massaging of the hip flexor might of irritated it, I will have to ask my pt tomorrow.

    Question about walking...

    I bought a manual treadmill before hip #2. So glad I did, with hip #1 there was so much smoke from the wildfires, that I never made it out. There was a lot of ice out there this time...forcing me to log 10 hours on the treadmill. :) :-) (:

    Can you overstretch/massage a muscle? My hip flexor (left side) was so bad yesterday. I had to put heat cream on it, as I could not put any weight on that leg. Feels betterish today, but I am scared to stretch it. I am going for acupuncture on Tue to see if that can help quiet it. :what:
