I had hip replacement surgery on my left hip on June 1, 2020 with the anterior method. The pain hasn't been too bad, but I am still unable to walk without a cane due to the pain when I put my full weight on my left hip. I am in week 5 of my recovery and I thought I would be able to walk without a cane by now. Are my expectations too high? I started PT today and my therapist gave me some exercises to strengthen the muscles around my hip to see if this will help me walk pain free. I'm feeling a bit down about where I am in my recovery. Looking for others who have had hip surgery around the same time to let me know how they are doing.
