I had both hips replaced on 4/19/22. I am 6 weeks post op and generally doing well. My incisions are healing nicely, and I just have some stiffness in the hips when first getting up. I have been walking every day, but after about 5 minutes, I have excruciating lower back pain. If I rest for a few minutes, I can go another 5 minutes. I would like to be walking greater distances, but the back pain is holding me back. I also gave pain if I just stand for 5 minutes. Thanks for all the helpful tips and support. It has been a long journey.
