I am 9+ weeks post op THR and am experiencing a Trendelenburg Gait as the result of a severed gluteus medius (and minimus) from a lateral surgical approach. I'm getting blank stares from the surgeon and PT when I ask if it will ever go away if I exercise well. I have not spoken to anyone else who has had this problem but would love to know what prognosis to expect down the road. Can anyone relate to this? I am 71 years young (the new 51!) and otherwise have had a spectacular recovery. I still use a cane and sometimes a walker when I need to go faster without limping. The Trendelenburg Gait (without a cane/walker) will eventually damage my back, hips, pelvis. I'd like to correct it before it does damage.
