I have my 6 week post op appointment tomorrow. It is actually 4 days earlier than actually being 6 weeks from surgery. I am doing GREAT, EXCEPT in the morning after I get out of bed and take the first few steps I feel a little discomfort in my right hip area. Then after I have walked around a little and have taken 2 hydrocodones, it gets better. But then I drive to work and it takes 1/2 hour and when I get out of the car and take the first few steps I feel that discomfort in my hip area. Before surgery, the discomfort in my hip area was pain and it would should down my right leg. It was more than the first few steps that were painful and I couldn't walk most of the day without limping. But, surgery has stopped the shooting pain.
Does anyone else experience the right hip area discomfort? I still have non painful sensations down my right leg and a feeling on my right side where I used to have pain, but the pain is gone, I just have the feeling. Nothing else bothers me and I feel like I could start jogging when I am out walking and I have caught myself running down and skipping up stairs at work and at home....just because that's how I went up and down stairs before I started having back problems....so that's all good
I guess I'm thinking that I am suppose to be 100% better, but maybe I'm going to have the right hip pain twice a day for the rest of my life????
