I’m 6 weeks post THR and can’t move my leg vertically at all. I have had worsening groin pain escalating over the last 2 weeks and in agony most days. My surgeon prescribed PT 3xs a week and walking 5,000 steps and I’m struggling. Today I saw him at the office for a post op and he actually told me that I wasn’t trying hard enough and that if I really wanted to lift my leg I could. He said I was just one of those cases and on the low end of the bell curve. He said I would just need to wait up to 2 years for resolution and to work harder at my PT. I was so let down and hurt I felt total despair. Reading your experience @SaraK gives me hope. I know in my gut something just isn’t right. I’m doing all this PT and trying my best and am in so much pain with my groin. I can’t sleep. Can’t function at all. I will be seeking a second opinion asap. Thanks for sharing your story - gave me strength today to keep fighting and not just take his nonsense.
