Six week post op update
« on: September 23, 2013, 09:45:26 AM »
Hello all, I am now six weeks post left hip resurfacing with Dr. Mont in Baltimore.

I am walking without assistance and with just barely a limp. It is still hard to stand on the operated leg when putting pants on, but I can flex it enough to tie shoes and put on socks with ease.

At my five week follow up appointment, I was told that everything looks good and given a script for PT, but have not had my first appointment yet. However, my walking is now pretty much unlimited, I do not have any pain, and only a bit of a limp. Last night I did 20 minutes on the elliptical.

It really has changed my life. Just keeping fingers crossed that this implant lasts for a long time.

I think we all started with our fingers crossed. Eventually, gloves are a problem, so we mentally cross our fingers  ::)

Like the report, don't worry about balancing, it took a while for me. Ask them to work on it in PT (I think they will anyways).
