Thanks for the info on the "stutter step"...great name for it. It's good to hear that it's normal. I will be super careful with yoga. It's a gentle class and I'll be seeing my PT who is a yogi and she can tell me what is and isn't safe at this stage. My doctor said it would be pretty rare to dislocate at this stage but I will be super careful. No overdoing it for me. Thanks all for your answers and assurances.
I had a wonderful Christmas holiday and look forward to the new year with a new hip! Happy New Year to you all!

My daughter is a yoga instructor...but she's never had a THR. She's learned a lot about joint replacement since I had one. One of the moderators should be able to link the dislocation/time chart.

Here's some info on dislocation risk, there is a chart toward the bottom of the first message.

I thought I ought to report in since I returned to my yoga class. The first class was January 2. My hip seemed to do fine. I go to a gentle yoga class so no crazy moves and the instructor did an all floor class. Only problem was, she did several seated forward fold poses and since my back hadn’t really been stretched in 9 weeks it fired up my L5-S1 disc area. I’ve had a herniated disc there before and sure enough after class I could tell it was irritated and pressing on nerves. So I stayed away for a week Before attempting again...to give it time to settle down. I saw my PT the day after and she gave me a few things to do. I was so mad at myself for getting too overconfident. Back pain is the pits!! I went back and did ok in my next class.
I’ve been having a bit of discomfort mid thigh but the OS said it’s called tip of stem pain, due to the cortical bone reforming in that area. it’s normal he said and unless I’m having problems with walking not to be worried. I see them again at my 4 month P.O. I’m at the 10 week mark. Only two more weeks and I’m released to soak in a tub...which I dearly miss!

Ouch.
i had attended gentle yoga classes, too, before surgery. My instructor had me seated on yoga blocks or had me using yoga blocks so I did not have to stretch too far.
I hope it continues to be a class you enjoy.:bath:

Hello,
It's nice to hear from you. Thanks for the update!
It's seems you're doing pretty well. Back to Yoga and life in general.
I'm sure you'll enjoy that first long soak in the tub your're looking

Until then....wishing you all the best!
