Welcome Back

The Hip Talk Discussion Forum was hacked a few weeks back. It has taken me a long time to fix it. The only backup I could use was way back to April 2020. All members and posts up to that date are available. Anything newer has been lost. I am sorry, but that has been the only way to get things up and running again.

You're going to feel a lot of different twinges, especially as you start exercising muscles that may have been unused or atrophied for a while. You're also probably walking differently, so the mechanics of movement have shifted (I know they did for me).

I had some pain on my IT band on both sides, worse on the left; I also had knee pain, which I believe was due to that. The thing that helped me the most was massage (light) on the area, on the incision and most of all - I use a foam roller to go over the IT band, loosening it and in the process it really relieved the knee pain. The roller is awesome.

I had a surprising amount of lower leg pain off and on after surgery.  I agree with Hernanu that it seemed to be from using muscles differently.  I think every muscle inmy operated leg acted up at some point or another.

Yesterday I went snowshoeing up Mt. Seymour outside Vancouver,BC.  The last time I did that I had major hip pain.  This time NO HIP PAIN!!!!  And I was able to dance last night to celebrate a new year without hip pain.

Best wishes.

That awesome Dan. You've worked really hard to get to the place you are in your recovery. I'm 3 weeks behind you and would love to be able to snoeshoe and dance in 3 more weeks. Good goal for me.

Hey congrats on the one year, Dan! I remember that awesome video of you going up and down the stairs early, dance is a really good use of the hips.
