Happy One Month Anniversary!
I was surprised how numb it is around my incision.
This can last for months. I found the area of numbness slowly dissipate until gone. Here is same info I found on the topic awhile ago -
Small sensory nerve fibers are cut with the incision. These nerve fibers run from the inside to the outside of the hip and cutting them causes the hip to feel numb after surgery. It is a temporary sensation that normally resolves over a period of six months to one year post op.

While healing you may experience sensations of tingling, pins and needles, itching, burning and even the feeling of a minor electrical shock. These are usually good signs that the nerves are spontaneously firing through the regeneration process.

You‘re doing really well, taking it slow and you have a great attitude in regard to the healing process. May it only get better and better.
Enjoy the weekend and thanks for the update! :)
