I finally had my hip replaced in December 2018 after a 17 month wait on the NHS. I am now nearly 9 weeks post op and have just been for a walk in the sunshine without limping and pain! I have spent a lot of time reading other members experiences of THR and think I'm on track. The only problem I now have is not being able to sleep on either side as it's still painful. I have to say, being normally active and enjoying water sports it was a shock to find my leg muscles so sore for about a month after surgery. I still feel a bit lopsided and have a bit of stinging in the calf which feels like nerve damage. GP said to give it a few months to settle down. I haven't had my follow up with surgeon as it was cancelled on the day of the appointment, it's now scheduled for 11 weeks after surgery! I've learnt not to believe everything that's written online too, I tried too many exercises and made my inner thigh sore. Il stick to walking.
