I'm 5 months post op. my limp has been gone for awhile and only in the last 2 weeks does my leg feel strong and stable but I still have an issue with pain for a short time when I stand after sitting. My doctor told me it could take up to a year for the muscles to feel normal but I am in better shape than I was 6 months ago. PT has helped. Hope you've improved since your last postView Thread
The pain is quite a bit less than it was at 3 weeks post op and the limp improves each week, now being slight. My doctor did say that sitting puts the most stress on the hip but I'm beginning to wonder the same thing. Some days I can navigate stairs fairly well and some days I have to resort to one leg at a time. It is frustratingView Thread
I had my bursa removed 8 weeks ago along with relocation of the IT band and removal of bone spurs. Has anyone had this done and can tell me how long the total recovery was? I have improved greatly but still have pain especially after sitting.View Thread
