I was progressing ahead of schedule almost three weeks after my hip replacement surgery. I was probably feeling too good (I'm 55 years old and in good shape). Last Monday (6/2/2014) I dislocated my hip. The pain was intense, but that subsided after my hip was reset. Emotionally, I am doing better, but I'm really afraid of another occurrence. It's been one week from the day and I'm not feeling anything other than some muscle soreness. I would love to hear from anyone else that has been through this and that can offer some advice. I understand that the next couple of weeks are critical for my recovery. Golf, cycling, working out on the elliptical are my goals, but what is a realistic timetable. Thanks for your support and advise.View Thread
Thank you for your reply. I was told that I was set back about two weeks. I went from riding the stationary bike for 10 minutes back to week one exercises. It was pretty discouraging. I'm feeling stronger and don't feel like I need my cane to walk, but I'm using it as a reminder to watch my hip protocol. I have an appointment with my surgeon next week and hope for good news. The worry of another dislocation is scary. I don't go anywhere in or out of the house without my cell phone with me.
