Pain free after 10 days? Not likely that happens for anyone. I'm 4 years + out on my first and I still get muscle pains and stiffness. With my first at 12 weeks I rang the over did bell and was in great pain for quite a while afterwards. My interesting observation and it might not apply to anyone else. With my first I was going to be an A student and one of the things was I was going to recover better, faster, stronger. I did a lot of over dids and paid the price with pain. With my 2nd my recovery consisted of sitting and some walking. I walked often and slowly and didn't care about distance just form. Any guess which hip seemed to turn out better in the long run? I never had any formal PT with either, my OS advised against it.I will take it easier. I am not sure if I really have been pushing much. I have had pt a total of 4 times at hone. They have been very simple and basic. I just have to accept this is going to be a time thing and be patient. My main concern was if it was normal to feel pain after 10 days.
I felt the exact same way but this forum really helped me to properly adjust my expectations as did my OS. He told me at 6 weeks I was still early in my recovery then again I think he's really, really conservative.I am accepting that this will be a long while. I am just a little depressed. Not being able to do much is getting to me and I am just in the beginning stages.
This seems normal. You‘re going to have pain and stiffness this early on especially after being idle (sleeping) and also if you’re overdoing it.I did wake up this morning with alot of pain. But pain gradually went to normal pain
I really hope I heal and there isn't any other issue.
Please trust your surgeon. He’s the expert and the one that sees patients and performs surgery day in and out. He reassured you that your pain is normal. Hold that thought, especially when you start going to the bad place in your mind.went to surgeon today he told me to be patient. He said groin pain is normal.
