Persistent walking pain, excersize tip
« on: March 04, 2012, 08:05:23 PM »
Hello,
Going on 4 years post BHR right side and I still get bone pain when walking too far on hard surfaces on that side. Yet I can put hiking boots and a pack on do 16 miles on mountain trails and even alpine climbing no problem. Likewise with long bicycling. I just have a hard time walking on cement or similar in walking shoes. I've even tried those toe shoes which kind of helps but not sufficiently. It can get super painful radiating even to my lower leg and forces me to stop for a while.

But I might have found a solution. After getting laid off I got a lot better at hitting the gym every day( for  for two months now) and put leg presses back on the menu...got up to 2x my weight right now plus other leg work. Strangely, I have lately gotten much much better at walking on cement. Definitely upped my walking miles round town.  I wonder if that has stimulated bone changes? I know its difficult to separate referred pain issues but this really did feel like bone pain inside the femur rather than sciatica, muscle, or similar. If anyone has a similar problem, you might try it.

The only thing I would add to this post, bear in mind John is 4 years post-op, check with your doctor before doing 2 times your body weight on a leg lift.

Most doctors will allow you to get back into weights @ 1 year post-op, again though, check with your doctor.

Hi John, as someone not yet with a resurfacing, may I ask who is your surgeon?

But I might have found a solution. After getting laid off I got a lot better at hitting the gym every day( for  for two months now) and put leg presses back on the menu...got up to 2x my weight right now plus other leg work. Strangely, I have lately gotten much much better at walking on cement. Definitely upped my walking miles round town.  I wonder if that has stimulated bone changes?

I think you still need some muscle work on that hip, and the improvement from the leg presses shows it. I was put on leg presses (light) towards the end of my outpatient PT. I'm now doing about 250 about 90 reps (3 X 30) I notice it helps my leg, but my left is much more capable than my right, which was the last done about 14 months ago. The right is good, but the left is great. I don't feel pain, just more sore on the right when I do a lot.

I'm also trying different techniques that may help the right over the hump, I balance a lot on it, started doing juggling while balancing on it, also do a slide board that simulates skating for pretty intense side to side movement. I will ramp up the leg presses, I definitely now (at 1 + years) feel that I can ramp it up. I don't think I'll get back to my previous weight (~500) but who knows? That is one good thing about this, I can reach for my limits incrementally.

Like Chuck mentions - this is between two people who have had their devices for a while, not during initial healing.
