@boricuaterp - Thanks, my job is also sitting in front of a computer all day. Thanks for the response.Hi @WashingtonHiker - I had my surgery the exact same date you had yours, and I still feel that I’m not recovered completely. I have some pain when I bend to grab things, lower back pain and a general feeling of inflammation around my hip and leg. It is probably because I tried to do too much too early.
I went back to work full time on September 13. My job consists pretty much of sitting in front of the computer for 8 hours. I try to get up and move around/stretch every 45 minutes or so. Sometimes when I get up I don’t feel any pain, and sometimes I do, especially at the end of my shift (my hip/leg area feels tight). I drive home from work, I talk to the wife, play with the kids, and get on the bed and elevate the leg. If the leg feels particularly swollen, I ice it down 45 minutes to an hour; that brings relief.
I notice some buttock/groin pain some days, and other days less so. I guess that’s the nature of my recovery, not a straight, and steady one, but with a series of ups and downs. Patience (which I’m starting to develop) is necessary at this juncture of recovery.
Good luck with your recovery!
