If surgery is recommended for your left hip but you don’t have much pain, I would think It a good idea to get a second opinion. @SweetV

Hi!
I am 23 and just under went my first hip replacement! (Severe inflammatory arthritis)
My recovery has been fine so far and have just passed the 6 week mark.
Just wondering has anyone at this stage still got outside thigh muscle pain when walking? It’s not and enough to stop me walking but is very noticeable and I keep worrying I’ve done something to the hip!
Been doing my physio exercises, most just moving the leg outwards and lifting my knee up. Also walking daily about 1.5 miles through the entire day.
Just looking for some reassurance, due to my age I don’t really know any others who have underwent this surgery!
I had my THR in March 2022. Yes, I still have outer muscle pain; however, it gets better every month! I do water aerobics 3x/week. Please don’t overdo it. I think we worry too much sometimes. If my leg bothers me, I rest it. My ortho doc says massage it, which seems to help.
