Good morning and thank you for your response. It's good to hear someone else who felt like me at 3 months. I just made an appointment for next week with my original surgeon and I'll see what he has to say. I really feel that no other doctor is going to do or say anything when they aren't the one who did the surgery. It feels like there is something pulling behind my incision...causing the stinging/burning/pain. I'm glad to hear you are feeling so much better at 6 months. I spent all last evening crying and just not knowing what to do but now I will go to the doctor and see what he has to say. I will keep you all posted. Have a blessed day.Good morning Alice,
I was still having crying jags at 3 months. It's a long process and one I wasn't ready for either.
I think the stinging/burning thing is common, sometimes, still experience that.
I'm almost 6 months post op and you will be surprised how much better you feel and what you can do, give it a little more time, ice, rest when you can. I know you are feeling impatient, so was I. I was told 30 days and I'd be back to doing what I wanted to do, no way, so unrealistic.
However, I do agree with Snoopy, if you are feeling that another doctor's opinion would help then by all means do that. Some doctors don't have same personality as others which might come across as uncaring but to them hip surgery is another day in the office, but for us it's a big deal and we need support.
Keep us posted on your decision.
