Hi.. I had THR on 10/25/17.. all went well. Was home after 2 nights in hospital.. I had ANTERIOR approach. My hip felt great within a week… was able to walk with and without cane… but I overdid it too soon… go slow with the recovery but make sure to do rehab exercises EVERY DAY AND FOR THE PRESCRIBED NUMBER OF TIMES….As the hip was healing however, my outer thigh was totally numb and swollen as was the incision site… I was told my doctors Physician assistant that the numbness and muscular pain in the thigh could last as long as 6-12 months…? I was feeling down after 6 weeks but am starting to see swelling go down and numbness disappearing… just make sure to ice and after a few weeks add moist heat with a bed buddy…everyone is different but I’m pleased with everything especially NO PAUN IN HIP… good luck on yours..
