Congrats on your new hip! Just rest and ice and take your meds like everyone suggests. You have to be reeeeally patient about this. I'm in my 50s too and boy it was hard to be patient. But trust me you just need to do what everyone is telling you and you will be fine. I started and stopped PT twice already and all I am doing is walking but I am at 5 months post op and you are just 5 days.....and also my surgery was different than yours but I think they cut the same places and stitch you back the same. You've got a new hip and I got the old one pinned up but either way its still painful. Let us know how you're doing!
