I had THR in 1974 (was told youngest in US at that time - 26 years old) and TH debridment (removal) in 1984. I have found the best exercise to be water jogging. Most YMCAs have water exercise classes tailored for arthritis, hip & back surgery persons. I am in the process of purchasing an Endless Pool (www.endlesspool.com) for convience and at home use. I have no hip joint, however, scar tissue miraculously formed a ball and socket. I have low grade pain most of the time but only if I "over do it" will I have enough pain to interfer with basic activities. I pray that you will have less pain each day. Shirley
