12 Weeks Post Total Hip Replacement

I can’t believe that it has been 12 weeks since I had my left hip replaced! I saw my surgeon today and we are both pleased with my recovery thus far. I have full range of motion back. Though I don’t think I can sit criss cross applesauce yet! I have no real desire to try!

I have been walking about 2 to 4 miles a day. I can go up and down hill now. Downhill is the hardest. I still take a trekking pole with me on long walks or hikes. I have been on the field in muck boots hiking through a fen! I was exhausted but it was great.

I still have some nerve and muscle pain but it’s normal.I see my surgeon again in 3 more months.It is so good not to have the horrible pain I used to have!

If you are suffering with hip pain, I encourage you to see a good orthopedic surgeon! My surgeon asked me if I would do it again. And of course if my other hip goes, I will have it done by him if he is still here! Hopefully it will be a long time from now though.
