I know it is hard not to compare, but the funny thing is, compared to many of us, you are doing fine. Except that you are doing too much. I used crutches to go to my 6 week follow up. I was ashamed to be so backward ( I thought). Surgeon said it was nothing to worry about, this was not a hip for 6 weeks or a year, it was a hip for life. Remember, I only had one hip done, I don’t have osteoporosis. But I still used 1 crutch intermittently past 3 months. In fact, I may take one with me to go to London on Saturday. There is no shame in it, and it gets me space and a seat on the tube. Otherwise, 4 months out, I’m walking fine. Please please please don’t let your physio push you. If you can’t say no (I can’t), cancel the appointment. There’s a lot of highly infectious vomiting bugs around, aren’t there?! If your leg gives way and you fall, you could wreck your leg forever.
