Re: Hip Replacement and Sex

Do you have any restrictions with positions?

Re: Hip Replacement and Sex

Hi...sex as with anything else should be as tolerated. Try it, if it causes discomfort figure out a different position. You should probably stay off the trapeze for awhile though :-) I am 3 months post hip resurfacing and have been having sex since week 4.

Most surgeons have you follow your restrictions, such as not going over 90 degrees and crossing knees, for a certain period of time following your surgery. These restriction should be followed in all activities. However you can get really creative and find lots of fun ways to get around the restrictions. Take your time, do not push too hard, but find out what feels safe and good and try to relax and enjoy! [removed]. I had both hips simultaneously replaced, and a new hubby and we were able to resume relations after only 6 days.

Once you have fully healed most of the restrictions are completely lifted and you can do what ever feels ok.

Thanks Ripanco!!

I'm Portuguese and i have 27 years hold. I had a THR on 07/11/2006.I want to know when can i flex my leg to 90º.and if are any limitations for my entire life.
My doctor tells me I have no restrictions, but 15 days after the sirurgie .I dislocated and again after 15 days, now I am scared.
when you start crossing your legs and bending beyond the 90 degree? do you did in the two hips? In what position do you sleep?
Sorry so many questions
sorry by my English, is not very good.
