I’m 5 weeks post surgery from right THR Anterior approach, and doing great. Been walking all over and using the elliptical, and this week the doctor gave me the go ahead to swim so I’m taking deep water running, and pool boot camp at my gym. Here is my question…has anyone been experiencing or experienced during their recovery pain in the buttocks? I think it’s the piriformos muscle? It kills me. I have mentioned this to the physical therapist and she said it’s because I’m using muscles I haven’t used in over a year due to my limping and not being able to fully exercise. The hip feels great I’m just having these muscle issues!
