Today’s 6 week check up went great (Direct Anterior Approach). My next scheduled appointment is in 12 months. I’ve been given the green light to bike, swim and lift weights. Told to hold off another 8-12 weeks before doing leg strength training or running.
Over the last six weeks I’ve walked a lot for PT. Started gradually but built up to walking 10 miles on Sunday. Muscle memory and flexibility seem to improve each day.
With today’s Dr approval I was finally able to test out the hip: 1000 yds swim, 30 min spin bike, 1/2 treadmill. No Arthritis pain and significant flexibility improvement. I was finally able to reconnect with something I thought might be gone forever.
I know it takes another month or so for the implant to fully heal into the bone.
What are your thought on stretching or yoga six weeks in ? Too soon ?
