@Lindylou30 Welcome to BoneSmart! Can you give me the exact date of your surgery and which hip? I'll put the information in your signature for you.
Sorry you are feeling low. Yes we have had several members who suffered nerve damage. Nerves do take a very long time to heal. Since you are only days out of surgery you are just starting this recovery journey. Post op blues are very common. This too shall pass!
I'll leave you with some reading. These articles may answer questions you have about this recovery. Hip Recovery: The Guidelines
1. Don’t worry: Your body will heal all by itself. Relax, let it, don't try and hurry it, don’t worry about any symptoms now, they are almost certainly temporary
2. Control discomfort:
BIG TIP: Hips actually don't need any exercise to get better. They do a pretty good job of it all on their own if given half a chance. Trouble is, people don't give them a chance and end up with all sorts of aches and pains and sore spots. All they need is the best therapy which is walking and even then not to excess.
We try to keep the forum a positive and safe place for our members to talk about their questions or concerns and to report successes with their joint replacement surgery.
While members may create as many threads as they like in a majority of BoneSmart's forums, we ask that each member have only one recovery thread. This policy makes it easier to go back and review history before providing advice.
I had nerve damage after my TKR, numbness on the bottom of my foot, seemed like it took forever to return. It did not hurt so was not a problem for me.
Do you have pain with your nerve damage, or is it just numb?
Please will you tell us the full date of your hip surgery, what you had done, and which hip it is, so we can make a signature for you? Knowing the exact date will help us to advise you appropriately in the future.
By the way, I've moved your post and its thread to the Hip Surgery Recovery Area, since you have had your surgery.
I hope you start to feel better soon.
It’s been a month now since surgery and I hope you’re doing well since you last posted.
Please leave an update. We’re here for support and would love to offer encouragement as your healing journey continues.
Happy One Month Anniversary! Wishing you a pleasant weekend. @Lindylou30
