    You are now an Honor Graduate [​IMG] from your pre-op days! You've entered the recovery phase of your replacement journey to that place called “Normal”, and you are now eligible to be a [​IMG] Recovery Club member.

    Pre-op surgery team members are automatically recovery team members. If you were not on the pre-op list, please join your fellow travelers in this month’s post-op club by requesting your name and surgery date be added to the roster.

    Being a team member will allow you to share your [​IMG] questions, concerns, and experiences; give one another [​IMG] support and encouragement; [​IMG] vent, whine, and [​IMG] shed some tears, if necessary; and have some [​IMG] fun and laughs together. (Please do the above in one another’s recovery threads. And if you find your fun and laughs taking over an individual thread, toss them over to the Social Room to keep your recovery thread on target.)

    Recovery is a long journey [​IMG] made shorter and easier when made with [​IMG] fellow travelers. So, start you membership in this special club today by requesting that your name and surgery date be added to the list!

    Just found this site. Had right THR on 23 October. All progressing well except for soreness in muscles around operated hip which makes it difficult to stand on operated leg.

    @smokey1, sorry just saw this as been a bit hectic with the holiday. For the leg length difference I’m using a lift I got at the ortho’s office with a gel foot cushion on top of that. Not super comfy as with certain shoes it slips a bit but better than walking in an up and down carousel motion lol. It is a bummer as the lifts mean I have to wear high top shoes as I’m lifted right out of regular height ones.

    My opposite ankle was damaged 6 years ago when I was hit by a car crossing the street. The car threw me about 20 feet and I came down on my heels basically exploding both of the heel bones. So this isn’t my first “rodeo” as we say here...had to learn how to walk again once before.
