Hi I had a RTHR in Feb with no complications. I have had a LTHR on 27/10 and it's totally different . I cannot lift my leg or do anything without sharp pain running down my leg even when on strong pain killers. With routine stretching laying on back sliding heel to buttocks and sliding sideways while leg out straight is impossible without excessive pain. Surgeon said that new joint was slightly longer which has stretched muscles but should be fine in time. I can't do my post op exercises without pain.
