I got this same observation by my PT and as tightness is really prominent still these early days, my issue resolved as it was attributed to tight hip flexors.The PT told me my left ( the operated side ) was a little shorter than the right, ( he told me how much, but I forgot ). He said the discrepancy was very minor,
We're certainly not here to judge, but only to support, encourage and share advice when we're able. It is your recovery and you make the call on how you're going to do it.so I will say what I do, even if it makes me look bad.

I talked with my surgeon today, and he agreed no more physical therapy . I have another appointment with the surgeon at the end of the month, and we will see how I am doing.
Not about making anyone look bad. We all want everyone to have the best outcome with the least amount of setbacks and pain.I thought I would see what physical therapy had to offer, I know what I said, about not going, but I thought maybe just maybe, it might benefit me.
I want to be truthful on here, so I will say what I do, even if it makes me look bad. Thanks for all the advice I do appreciate it.
Indeed only one month out I would agree. That's why we recommend 10-12 weeks and then a phased return.If I was still working ( I had an outside physical job ) no way would I be able to report back to work.
