So glad you are doing so well!:tada:
I'm glad the injection has helped you hold off and enjoy some life with no hip pain!
Have a great week and make sure you balance all that activity with some downtime.:ice:
Don't want you hitting the Overdid It Club!

I hope you had a lovely Easter Sunday.

Happy Three Month Anniversary!

Leave an update if you have time next time you drop by. Would love to hear what you're up to.
Wishing you a great week!

Hi! Crazy busy with work and life, but excellent. At three months post op I am happy to report that I am pain free. I have some slight numbness around the scar, but I really don't care about that. I also still have a little less stamina than before - but I think that will come back. Finally, I continue to have weakness when I raise my right thigh. I believe this is from my first hip surgery when the PSOAS tendon was released. I recall that surgeon warning me I would have permanent weakness as a result, and I think that is what this is.
Otherwise, I am completely my old self. I am working, swimming, biking and practicing yoga. My husband and I are gearing up for Bike NYC's 40 mile tour of New York's five boroughs next week. I am blessedly normal right now. Allelulia.
@Layla, thank you for checking on me. You are great. Are you having spring yet in Minnesota? It is here - cherry trees and azaleas are in bloom, the bees are out, and the osprey are back and active. I am loving it.

Hey :wave:
What a great update and I thank you for taking the time to share.
I'm happy for you that you're doing so well. I had some of that numbness in different areas around my scar also lasting up to around nine months post op I'm guessing. It slowly decreased over time until all was well.
You're pain free...that's awesome! The 40 mi tour of the boroughs sounds fun. It's great you're able to do that at 3 1/2 mo post op. You'll have to let us know how it goes.

Thanks for the kind words. Spring has arrived here but it's not as beautiful as yours sounds, nothing is blooming or buzzing here yet but thankfully it will be shortly. Stay safe on your bike tour and continue enjoying life as you seem to be doing. You're like a ray of sunshine! :yes: :wink:

Hello all! Four months post THR, and all is well. I did miss out on my Bike NYC plans in May; it was raining and cold and we decided not to go. However, I have been riding and walking a great deal and I feel great. I also swim and take yoga. I am very thankful to be able to continue these activities. For those concerned about ever being able to sit cross-legged again, I am slowly getting back to that. I don't quite have the same range and comfort as pre-hip issues, but I am much improved since even two months ago. I have to say that day-to-day I just don't notice that I have an artificial hip.
This past week we spent five days in New Orleans, walking all day long. Apart from being exhausted and very, very hot, I felt great. My operated hip held up beautifully. The other hip, however, ached a bit, and so I expect some day to have to do something about it.
Big plans ahead - my husband and I plan to walk part of the Camino de Santiago this summer. I am keeping my expectations low, and if it doesn't work out, we'll simply stop and do something different. I am just feeling so cocky that I need to see whether I can do it.
Have any post THR patients out there done the Camino? I'd love to hear how it went.
Thanks for checking on me, @Layla. You are awesome. I hope you continue to be well!

Hi @Scarab,
Always nice to hear from you. I'm sorry you missed the Bike NYC. It's wonderful to read you're riding, walking, swimming, engaging in yoga and doing well. A trip to New Orleans too...wow! You've packed a lot of activity and fun into a few short months. I'm sorry to hear your other hip is acting up somewhat, hopefully you get a lot more mileage out of it.

I've never heard of the Camino de Santiago and had to look it up. Spain, how exciting for you! You'll definitely have to let us know how it goes. Hopefully someone will stop by who's experienced it.

Wishing you a wonderful trip. Prayers for your safety and protection as you travel. Thanks for your kind words, well wishes and update.
