Im at 9 months and I get the gluteus medius pain too. I feel like it’s just the muscles finding their way back. I also still get the nerve zingers, more so when I’m relaxing. I’m walking like mad, feeling very flexible and sleeping in all of my favorite positions again!Well gosh it’s been a while since I posted- I’m at 10 1/2 months post surgery- it’s been up and down though generally up than heavens- I can do most things easily now but I’m a member of the ODIC club and every now and then still get a sore gluteus medius- then I need to rest again for a week or three and go back to icing! Has anyone else experienced this? I would like to hope that eventually it will strengthen enough to not get strained anymore.
