Hi I have been reading the posts on this forum so helpful and comforting! I had a total right hip replacement on 26 October and was making great progress but at around 7 1/2 weeks my glutes started to ache and hurt a bit - I cut back on the exercises and have been elevating icing and resting pretty much constantly for the last week or two- got covid 7 days back so the rest was unavoidable! My covid symptoms have almost gone but the glute muscles don’t seem to be recovering very much- I am back to one stick and can’t even contemplate going to the supermarket or a 20 min walk round the park which I could do 2 weeks ago . I can manage a 5 minute slow walk round the garden but that’s it. Is it normal to take this long to recover? Would appreciate any feedback!
