Hello, I'm 37 and had two anterior total hip replacements done this year (primarily due to bad genetics and birthing two girls; otherwise I am very healthy, athletic and normal weight). My right leg was done on 2/2 and the recovery had been nothing short of amazing. I was actually surprised because I had a hard start the first two weeks post-op for the right leg, but smooth sailing since. I had my left one done on 3/23 and while the first week or two went well, it's been a hard recovery since. The past few days I've had groin pain and some pain in the front of the hip. It has made putting weight on it hard to bear and my walking is off (I even used my cane for a bit today because it was impossible to walk without support). I'v been icing it 4 times a day and took some Motrin a few times, which has helped a little. I will call the doctor tomorrow, but worried, if this is normal or not? I had a slight trip the other day, but didn't think it would be so impactful?
