Hi, Not sure if I should post as in case it puts people off surgery.I had my initial THR in August but suffered a dislocation in September. It was horrendous. It was my own fault as I sat on a garden bench that was too low.The hip was put back in and all went as planned until November when it dislocated again. This time I just went to pick something off the floor but because it was almost 12 weeks post surgery, I thought it was safe. Anyway, it resulted in another ambulance trip to hospital and I ended up getting a revision operation at the end of November. I have been really careful this time and all has gone fine. Only , I am now 12 weeks post-op and am nowhere near back on my feet. I still need a crutch. Without it I am badly lame! I also find it hard to do housework as my hip gets painful.I am doing 3 walks of about 20 minutes each day and one exercise the OS gave me.This is a lateral leg lift. Should I be doing more? I also cannot lift my operated leg without supporting it. Is this normal? I would be grateful for any advice.
