And here is a sneak preview of our recovery guidelines:Now you can read all of the guidelines and suggestions on this board to be prepared for post-op.
I was bone on bone in my right hip. I ran a marathon in January and now here I sit one month post op from a THR. The diagnosis in June came at a huge shock and many tears were shed. And while I am still in recovery, I am confident I made the right decision. The arthritis pain was gone the second I woke up from the surgery!Wasn't I just playing singles tennis and walking every day, and the only surgery I dreamed about was the plastic kind. How did I get here? Who am I?
Not more difficult - just longer. You may need to use a cane or crutch for a longer period to keep the weight off the non-op side.f the nonsurgical hip is more bothersome than the surgical hip--regardless of what the xrays say--won't recovery be difficult?
