    Happy Two Month Anniversary!
    I hope things are going well for you.
    If it's your op knee that's causing you discomfort, it may be due to
    some aggressive manipulation during the dislocation process of your hip during surgery.
    Try icing it, if it's still bothering you and see if it helps.
    Wishing you a great week!

    Thank you for your advice. Knee is slowly improving. As for hip each day seems to get better. Limp has nearly disappeared

    It's hard to believe but Physio is right, it's from the operation. This is a major surgery and they really do some tricks with your muscles to get all of it done. At 3 months my mind thought by the passing of that much time I was over all of the healing. That's when I did a good overdo and had to really put on the brakes for a few weeks to get back to where I was.

    Hi Shiner, :wave:
    It's nice to read you've made it back onto the golf course. Good for you! :yes!:
    I'll bet it feels good to be able to walk without the pain, even if it's at a slower pace.
    At only three months post op there is still a lot of healing going on. It will only get better. :happydance:
    I hope your knee pain eases soon. Thanks for updating.

    Like Eman85, I've gone through a couple of periods of "all healed/no pain" only to have a bit of pain flare up due to some new position or activity I've done, or a change in the barometric pressure. And then my tissue reminds me that it isn't 100% yet.

    I then slow down a bit, ice, take acetaminophen, and pretty quickly I feel great again. The good news is that the further out you get from your surgery, if you tune into your body, the faster you bounce back. My surgeon, and a few people here on the forum have been pretty graphic about what they have to do to actually replace a hip, and while I shudder to think about it, it does explain a lot!:)

    Hi I went to the Dr's for a routine blood test and had a A1C glucose test. I was told that i was prediabetic and was wondering if anyone else has experienced this due to the operation (as apparently the test is a 3 month history test on glucose....and the 3 months puts me at operation date). Thank you

    I'm far from being a Dr. or anyone with any true medical knowledge, that being said 3 months of inactivity might have something to do with it combined with diet.

    Thank you for the message. I'm doing well. In fact there are times where I forget that I have even had it done.
    This is a great forum and has helped me in many ways

    Thank you for your kind words. i now tell other people about this forum as it helped me and i hope it helps others.
    Doctors and physios never seem to give you an accurate picture of what to expect.
