It's only six days postoperative THR on my right hip but my experience is very different from the THR left hip I had in August last year. I realise it's early days, but I have more significant pain around my knee. The pain around my hip is about the same as what I remember. Doing the six 5-minutes of walking each day has proven much more challenging. My left leg appears to be somewhat "wasted" despite doing pre-op exercises. The THR last year was such a positive experience. The OS said the sore knee is probably a result of using the knee as a fulcrum () and should settle with time. The physio thinks I need to build muscles up to support both my knee and hip. I feel as though I'm overthinking at best; or a tad neurotic at worst Also, I have advanced degeneration in the patella femoral joint on the right leg.
