Hi @Stellaluna I'm glad to see the anti-inflammatory and a bit more rest and icing are helping. I imagine that having bilateral surgery is double the challenges of just the one hip being replaced. I would guess the pacing yourself and healing will take longer. I hope you continue to feel better. I'm doing quite well and am amazed at my new mobility at 6 months. I'm pretty much pain free except when I overdo lifting, bending, or too much sitting or standing at a time. It's so improved from where I was a year ago in terms of pain and freedom to do what I want.
