I found this community of Those who Know right before my BTHR and I feel like it was a very useful part of having a less stressful recovery.
I had my hips replaced both at once as they were apparently both toast
and though the first months were a bit tough, I am grateful for having essentially one recovery.
I've seen many members who have had THR'S approximately 3 months apart and we did have one other member I recall who had them 1 week ? or maybe it was 2 weeks apart.
I can't remember the name but I do remember they did very well.
Not looking forward to missing the gym but can’t wait to be able to walk pain free.
I'm not going to lie... I get nervous when I realize a new hippy is a gym denizon as often those members can have a hard time grasping the concept of Heal First and your patience muscle will definitely need to stay toned up to let you get back to healthy and happy.
On the flip side, being fit will definitely help and Upper Body Strength helped me immensely in my recovery.
Walking pain free after years of pain and decreasing range of motion... Priceless!
