Re: When Does The Pain and Stiffness Go After THR?
Had THR nearly 6 weeks ago by the AMIS method, now walking well around house and use stick when out. Scar, though only 2.5" long was VERY sore for for around 4 weeks (I guess thats because they have to stretch you so much to get in !).
Some pain still in bone and around hip when first taking steps after sitting though eases after a few steps. Can walk up to half mile ok but starts to ache after that. Sleeping is great as can now sleep in any position!
Had a raised toilet seat and frame thing delivered free by local social services but only used it 3 times, horrible thing! Car driving was ok after 3 weeks (Manual Transmission) though I stop every hour or so to walk around a bit.
Hospital don't want to see me till late Nov so we shall see how we go. (BEDFORD UK)
