This is my first post in this forum. 54M with right hip replaced Feb 24, 2020 (anterior approach). I used walker for two weeks then switched to cane which I need primarily for balance. For the first four weeks I had moderate pain in upper thigh that has now subsided for the most part short of PT exercises. My frustration is that I still very much rely on the cane for walking. I walk the dog about 3/4 mile over the course of a day and I can walk at a decent rate of speed but without the cane I would be a wobbling disaster. I am doing all the PT exercises at home I am supposed to do but seem stuck at this phase of relying on cane. Curious about what others experienced with the goal of unaided walking.
