This Tuesday will be 4 weeks since my left THR. My last in home PT was on 3/26 and at that point he said I should start walking around house without cane and also outside with a family member. I’ve found that I struggle to walk without a limp or list to one side when I don’t have the cane. Also there is an uncomfortable weak feeling in my joint area (almost like the feeling you get when you got your funny bone) and soreness in my buttock. I’ve been walking with the cane about 3/4 mile 2x day thinking that surely my muscles would feel stronger and that feeling would go away. The other feeling I get is when I stand up, it feels like my stitches are stretching and pulling (looks fine on surface). Anyone else experience similar sensations, etc. around this 4 week point? I would love to do some stretches for my lower back and left quad but my outpatient PT doesn’t start until 4/23 so I guess I should just hang tight?
