Had hip replacement 6 months ago. I've had lots of soreness in my hip for 2 weeks. What the heck? I walk 2 miles per day. I think I may have forgotten I had my surgery and have maybe been lifting too much. I also have some very tiny steep stairs in my home. Anyone else had this problem? One more think, when does the soreness oh away after driving sitting in the car?

Well I did end up having 2 beers, but did drink water as well. Now I am feeling the burn (sunburn). Water was great after that initial dip. Burrr! My knees hurt because we just stood around in the water having some laughs and dancing to the radio.

I would love to see a size 16 (not a 16W). I have picture of a dress posted on my page that I would love to wear someday. I have a ton of clothes too that I would love to get back into rather than go buy new ones.

Hi Kim.

Have fun on that boat today! Talking about beer, I actually found myself passing up my favorite candy in the grocery store yesterday, because I like the results I am having. I gained a little weight several months after my surgery, so now I am getting rid of it and more -- I hope. I went back on my water pill this week, and it has greatly encouraged me to be more careful of my sodium and carbs. I am so tired of wearing a size 18/20. I have some beautiful clothes in size 16 and smaller that are beautiful and timeless. I want to wear them. And I would love to see picture of myself that wasn't quite so wide. And I am tired of being the fat grandma in my family. There is my total honesty for the day. I just hope I don't end up with a lot of hangy, loose skin.

However, I have to admit, the best thing already , is that I feel healthier. emoticon

Glad to hear you are doing and feeling so well! It will be 5 years on June 21 (first day of summer) that I had my THR. It was amazing to me how much I had missed doing until I had the surgery. I took up bike riding a year after and felt my leg get strong with each ride.

Monday I am going to the ortho doc to get shots of lubricant in my right knee. Not sure if he is going to do the left one or not. If he does, that is okay with me. I just hope it works better than the cortisone shot I got back in April. It didn't work for very long.

Today I am going out on a boat with some friends. I have a new bathing suit I bought last year and put it one. Ahhh, a little tight! Yikes!! Need to lose the weight!! My general doc put me on a new high blood pressure med with a diaretic. I guess I had some water retention. I am going to be drinking water today while out in the heat. NO beer for me today!!

If you have a physical therapist, listen to them, and do the exercises. I should still be doing mine everyday, but sometimes I forget; however, I am so much stronger. Be patient with your body. It will get stronger as you do more. I cannot believe how much muscle I had lost: they keep reminding me. I had gotten so sedentary, because of pain. At first, it seemed like I hurt every time I added another activity (not in my hip or leg, necessarily), but in my calves, my knees, my back, my shoulders, my chest, my arms. I would ice those places and use a heating pad, take some ibuprofen, and rest if I was miserable; but, when I felt better, I would get going again. Now, 6 months since my surgery, I am amazed at the change in what I can do; and I am dealing with Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome too. I must add that I am thankful to God for helping me to do the things I need to do to heal.

I am going to add a link to a site that I went to, when I was checking on exercise I could do with a hip replacement:

www.livestrong.com/hip-replacement/

If you scroll down it lists several types of activities on this page. I also found an interesting article about a ballet dancer that danced in Cinderella as one of the ugly stepsisters several weeks after surgery. I can't do that, but I sure plan to keep on moving. For my friends that might worry about dancing, I am always keeping in mind the protocol for how to move our hips. I am not doing anything too drastic. emoticon

I hope telling you about my progress is an encouragement. I did not mean to talk about myself so much. Love you all.

Hugs,

Debby
