Incision soreness...
« on: February 18, 2012, 04:31:39 PM »
I'm at 5.5 months post-op.
Started running, gaining good strength, doing pretty much anything I want.
The length of my incision area still gets extremely sore, especially after a good workout of any kind.
Tried a hard trigger point foam roller today and it's real sensitive, could not even put all of my weight on it.
Is this a scar tissue issue?  Just still weak muscles in the area rebuilding?  Anyone else have this at my point post-op?

Dave,  Congratulations on your return to running.  I had been getting soreness after riding the bike outside.  I saw the doctor last week for my 12 week check-up and he told me that it's because the muscle strength isn't back yet.  It's hard to go easy outside, especially with this beautiful weather.  I rode today, nice and easy, and right now I'm feeling pretty good.  I guess I'll have to go through this all over again when I start to run again in May.

Good Luck  with it all.

I am 6 months post Op and also get sore after hard impact volleyball game.  I think it is a combination of the scar tissue and the blood flow to some of those muscles they cut and stretch during the surgery.

I still ice after a hard workout run or volleyball that helps before I use the roller.  It goes away the next day after some stairmaster, that is what makes me think its bloodflow.

My incision on the 11 month hip really bothers me after sitting all day.  it stays lose when walking or training. i sit alot and find it flaring up frequently. foam roller works wonders
