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.

One Month Post Op
« on: February 07, 2012, 03:33:05 PM »
I'm having aches and pain in my hip, butt, and groin. Not severe and it happens sitting and walking and is not constant. Any similar experiences or thoughts.

It's still early at one month, sounds pretty standard.

I had all sorts of pulls and strains, for months on both sides. You still are in the tissue healing phase, along with calling underused or atrophied muscles back into duty. The capsule is also starting to be exercised due to higher amount of activity.

Call your doctor and tell them about it, just to clear your mind a bit, that's also something that needs to be mended a bit. My last twinge / pull / "what the H3LL was THAT!" time was at about six months along, when I felt a groin 'snapping' walking up an incline. It happened several times over a week, talked to the surgeon, they got me down from the ledge and after a week never saw it again.

It pays to be alert, but unless it persists, probably fine.

You are very early in your recovery and what you are describing is probably very typical, but if you have any anxiety about it at all call your doc for reassurance.

You are still early in your recovery.  I was very stiff at 6 weeks and decided to do some water therapy with water walking, stretches and exercises.  http://www.surfacehippy.info/poolexercises.php

It takes a long time to recover and get back to normal. Usually takes 6 months to heal to be active, but one full year for comlete healing.  Some people get back to normal without pains quickly while others take time.

Be patient.  Also if you have severe pain of any kind, consult your surgeon.  It sounds like you are having normal recovery pains, but I am not a doctor.
