Hello, I had my THR on 2/13. Long story leading up to it but I've waited most of my life for this. it was a challenge for the surgeon as 50 years ago pins were inserted in my femur which had to be removed to install the joint. Due to this it was a longer surgery and a bigger posterior incision. All I can say is it has gone well and exceeded my expectations. I was walking the day of surgery and went home the next afternoon. Stopped for a Mexican on the way home and been progressing from there. Managed my pain for the first days and it's not been a problem, a few Ibuprofen now and then do the trick now. I'd like to compare PT and see what others are doing. My surgeon recommended against outside PT unless I felt it was necessary. I was given the PT exercises weeks before surgery and started doing them pre surgery. Pre surgery I attended a class that gave me all of the pre and post surgery info and the therapist was there explaining what would happen. The day after surgery the hospital therapist held a PT class and we started from there. My PT consists of basic post THR exercises 20 reps of each 3 times a day. Basics like ankle pumps, quad sets, gluteal sets, abduction and adduction, heel slides, short arc quads, straight leg raises, knee extensions, standing toe raises and standing knee flexion. Also walking 300 ft. and climb and descend a flight of stairs. So far I've followed this religiously for the first 2 weeks. Now have added standing rock over, mini squats and bridges. Along with that I'm walking a minimum of ¼ mile and riding my exercise bicycle along with climbing stairs. All of my PT sessions are followed by icing down with the recirculating ice water polar care cube. Looking for any and all PT exercises that will benefit my recovery. Any suggestions as to what worked to improve the recovery? I can say the greatest thing for me is the polar cube. It reduced swelling and bruising quickly.
