That's my right hip. At nine months post-op, each day seems to be different. This hip has behaved much differently than the left side, and honestly, some days I want to send it to its room.
Some days, like today and yesterday, I have enough soreness that I almost limp. Oh, who am I kidding? ... I limp. My Captain Morgan problem is magnified and it even hurts to lie on my stomach or the right side.
Other days, I feel no pain, and Captain Morgan only shows up when I'm really lifting my leg while bending the knee.
As for the rest:
- Numbness remaining: about 20 percent still numb in spots. (Much better than left side.)
- Deep itching/stabbing sensation comes and goes. About one instance per month.
- Clicking every so often. (I hardly notice.)
- Scar is still healing. I hardly pay attention to these anymore, so I really can't say how it looks.
- Plenty of pain on certain days in the front of the hip above my thigh. It's a burning sensation, unlike most other "hip dysplasia" pain I had pre-surgery.
- Zero pain while walking, unless it's a bad day. I'm dancing (Zumba and Body Jam), walking, lifting weights, playing basketball, etc.
My hips are becoming a thing of the past, can't believe it's been nine months since surgery No. 2. I'm not 100 percent happy with the result thus far, but close.
I continue to be thrilled that I'm through the recovery process!
