Hi Lola, I am sorry to hear of your problem. But I admire your courage to have another THR so soon after the first. I had my RT hip done 2 months ago today(JUNE 23). I am walking with no support, I do take my cane outdoors and to the store for safety and extra support. I still walk with a limp as my hip grows tired. What were your activites like at 2mo. with your first THR. Somedays I am not sure if I am doing enough and others to much. I do all my ouwn cleaning (not scrubbing)drive,ironing etc... I would love to hear from you as to these questions and what your Dr. has to say about your leg length. I do feel sorry for you, but hang in there you'll be fine. I am sure you are discouraged and afraid, but things will be fine.If they have the technolgy to do this type of surgery I am sure they can fix your limp with therapy...GOOD LUCK.....KATHY
