I tend to agree with you! What has really caught my attention is the wide variation in how surgeons deal with the incisions. Zip covers, glue, staples, stitches----and the different shapes and lengths of incisions even on the same person with the same surgeon but different hips. Also our perspectives of the incisions---our expectations.I don’t think any incisions look good early on but that is only my opinion.
I agree here! They adjusted mine at the medical supply and it was different than how we would have done it. You should be able to pop into any medical supply place to get that checked or PT.I’m wondering if there is any possibility your walker is too low, making it more tempting to lean on rather than using it for balance?? If no one like a PT or nurse adjusted it for you, it might be worth checking it out.
Me too!! Did I ever feel stupid when I found out because the right way makes much more sense!I was using cane in wrong hand prior to surgery if you can believe that
