Thanks so much but I am really 3 months out and very happy things are so good. I still feel I can do pretty much do everything I want to. My leg is weaker and I occasional take Tylenol before bed. I still have to use the rail to get upstairs and that is my most difficult task. I think it gets better every day and it will probably take the full year to not have any "niggles". I love how you guys say that. Is it a UK saying?
Thanks so much. My hip is doing great. I can do everything I want except when I stand on my Left leg to balance it is still very weak and doesnt want to bear my wt. Time will improve that i am sure.
However the last 5 days i am down with a bug. Maybe RSV, not sure. Horrible cough, sore throat headache ache and body aches. It is slowly improving. Of course nothing to do with my hip!
Ugh, I am so sorry you're sick. danelady seems to be struggling with something similar.
I do believe balancing on your left leg will improve over time. You're doing so well in your THR recovery!
Now...for that nasty bug to go away. Sending a hug and wishes you feel better soon! @lanstan
Well i just wanted to update you guys in case anyone else has this issue. I am over 4 months out and actually doing very well. But after my flu/RSV illness that had me not leaving my recliner for 10 days, I feel like I am having dull ache in my hip/butt area and need to start back over with returning to where I was. I am not worried as I know it takes a year to get over a lot of this. Make to icing and slowing exercising again. Oh what fun this is!
@lanstan It is so good to hear you are feeling better! But, yes, being ill and sitting for 10 days can certainly make your back and hips feel stiff and achy. You will get back to where you want to be! Icing and slowly getting back into your normal activities and exercises is definitely the way to go.
Wishing you a very Merry Christmas and happy New Year
Hello @ianstan. I have had both hips replaced 2 years apart. Went back to yoga after first one and am almost back to 100% after second one (7 months post op). Had anterior on both so timeline is a little different on bending restrictions for lateral I know. I just listen to my body and there are some of the more extreme poses I just have decided aren’t for me. But I felt stronger and stronger (other than dealing with the other hip that needed replaced) as time passed. I have an excellent article that was written a few years ago that covers it well but I’m not sure if I’m allowed to share that here. Maybe @Jaycey can answer that.
