I'll keep this short. Really just thinking out loud. Mentally preparing and physically pre-covering for a THR Revision only 5½ years after it was installed. Hip doc says there's nothing mechanically wrong with the joint but it appears that bone growth somehow stopped and the stem isn't fully bonded in the femur. It is tight down towards the tip but there is space around the top half. It started to cause some pain on a regular basis about 6 months ago. I have read way too much on revision recovery (as I did before the first replacement) and am now getting confused on what to expect. I have read no weight bearing for weeks to they make you walk before they release you from the hospital. I know recovery is different for everybody and I can't base my expectations on what anyone else experienced. I guess I will move forward with the same attitude I had for the first one. Work out as much as I can to strengthen the surrounding muscles and follow all of the post-op advice here on BoneSmart! I walked out of the hospital 24 hours after the first one. If I can come close to that, I will expect about the same recovery.
