Just had my 6 month check, X-rays all good, blood tests ( for infection) negative, but still pain when walking, it becomes very sore and inflamed within a few minutes. Eases when I rest and sit. Surgeon just says it should get better in time , soft tissues healing etc..and doesn't want to see me until the 1 year mark. I have rested it for the last 4 weeks as suggested by my physio with minimal exercise to give it chance to heal, but am still in the same position. I was a fit and healthy 61 year old and looking for a light at the end of this tunnel!
Has anyone else improved significantly after the 6 month mark? My understanding is that most people are doing much better by this stage? Can't help wondering if something is wrong, but have to try and stay positive and trust my surgeon. Interestingly, it seems more sore after drinking wine?!!!!
Any thought / ideas welcome.?! Catherine
