@weezy1939 I am 81 years old and had my right hip replaced in July.I was outside walking a block with walker 2 weeks later. Started therapy at three weeks and was taught how to use a cane. I am legally blind so decided cane was a hazard so after a week I walked without it. I did grab onto furniture in the house.
Another week later I walked on my own outside. I now call it my 30 year old hip and I walk fast every day on my mile route. I had back pain for thirty years and since hip surgery that pain is gone.
