I did it! I am about six weeks post hip replacement and am ready to get the other one done! It was a relatively easy recovery as my surgeon did the anterior approach. Ditched the Rx and walker at a week and just kept moving. The most important thing to remember is that you are not harming yourself when it hurts and it is just part of the process to healing. If you don't move, you won't be happy with the results. Do the exercises, walk and be positive-it worked for me!
