Hi all, I have been lurking here for a while and have found the threads and advice really helpful. I am 52 and had a right THR on 12th June so will soon be 4 weeks post op. I can get about the house easily and for flat walks using one crutch but still need 2 crutches for anything up/down hill - and I live at the bottom of a hill! When I try to take a few steps in the house without a crutch I limp a lot and can only take little short steps. Have others experienced this at this stage in their recovery? I do have some muscle wastage in my right quad following a tibial plateau fracture some years ago and my right glute is not as strong as my left for the same reason. Any thoughts would be very much appreciated. Happy Friday all.
