Question. I tried bicycling today. Mounting turned out to be difficult. I can’t extend the leg over the rear of the bicycle. I have to dump the bicycle to the ground, straddle it, then pull it up.

Otherwise, the ride was fine.

Is this an artifact of the surgery? Prior arthritis? I noted some difficulty prior to surgery, but not to this extent.

Hello and Happy Friday, Mutwa.
Since you’ve experienced two major surgeries within two and a half months time, and it’s only 5 months since the first, you will continue to notice improvement up until a year post op at the least, possibly even longer...which is quite common. Give it time, you’ll most likely get there.
Stay safe and well!

Residual symptoms:

Stride is shortened, maybe a preop condition. Psoas stretches help.

I get non-specific knee and distal upper leg pain. Walking seems to help both.

Looking forward to when the gyms reopen. We’ll go real early to avoid aerosols.

Thanks.

I’ve had some level 2 right mid-groin pain on hip motion with any internal rotation, especially climbing steps and bending over. Can avoid it by thinking “knees out”. Goes away while walking. This has been going on for over a week.

The question is, when to alert the surgeon? I’m concerned about external calcification.

Hello again @Mutwa
While there is certainly nothing wrong with posing a question here for advice from others who are in various stages of recovery, or have recovered, my feelings are if you‘re suffering pain and have a concern as you mentioned, consider calling your surgeons office for reassurance. I believe any consolation you receive from your surgeon, or his care team will likely put your mind at ease over mere speculation, or the opinions you’ll receive from the mainly non medical professionals here who are best at offering support and encouragement, over a diagnosis.
I hope your discomfort eases soon.
