Hi @Small1014 ---the post of mine you responded to this evening was one I wrote almost a year ago after my hip replacement. I opted not to do any PT but kept as active as I could comfortably by doing a lot of walking, and resuming of daily activities. For me, it was the right decision, as I was in pretty good shape prior to the surgery and am active by nature, so those things helped me recover without PT. You make a good point that those who have had previous hip replacement experience may have a different perspective/approach than first timers I also have noticed here on the forum that many people do not wait as long for their second replacement as their first, most likely because they realize how manageable the recovery typically is, and because they see how much the replacement improves their quality of life. I also have observed what a huge range of things people are asked to do in PT---some of the exercises appear to be closer to Olympic training that hip recovery. There are people like you as well, who feel they are able to do PT without overdoing. I'll be you are relieved to have hip #2 done and be moving along so well in your recovery!
