@AngiesHips Don't believe everything you hear or read from those bragging. If you read on this forum you'll see that the people hiking the Himalayas after 6 weeks are few and far between and shall we say stretching the fishing story a lot. As far as me sitting crosslegged on the floor it's not going to happen. I was never able to sit crosslegged on the floor, I've had limited ROM all of my life. I have much more ROM in my L hip now than ever before. I still have limited ROM in my R hip and it's hurting a little more each day so it's probably in my future. I had posterior and I had pins in my femur that had been in there since 1969 that had to be removed. I'd say he needed a little more room to work so it wasn't even a question for me. I wasn't worried about scars, that's the 3rd time in that hip and it's in a different spot, my other scar is on the side like yours. My posterior incision was 10" and now it looks like a thin pink pencil line. My uther scar looks like a football! You'll be fine and it will all fall into place. Your job now is to heal first, ten worry about the rest.
