I'm so sorry you are feeling so sad about this Butterfly. I'm glad you have found this forum to help you out. I too was expecting to feel so much better after just 6 weeks. This is what my surgeon told me! I've decided they really "sugar coat" everything ahead of time. I had posterior surgery on my right hip almost 8 months ago and still do not feel 100%. Of course I am 20 years older than you so I'm sure this will not be your case at all. I used a cane for well over 6 weeks and did PT at two different times in two different places. Just until recently I was still having pain in my hip when taking my right foot from gas pedal to brake when driving. I have been using my treadmill at home and I think that is helping with the strenghening. Like everyone has said we all heal at different times and I felt like I took forever to start to feel normal again. I hope you start seeing some improvement and I also think taking a PT break might help you quite a bit. I also felt like I had to change PT locations and therapists to get a different opinion on what would help me.
