This is my 2nd THR and I am pleased to say even though I was frightened out of my wits again, this time I was fortunate. I am walking unassisted all the time now and am thrilled I followed through with this when I did. I admit, my operated side is 3/8 of an inch longer but the doctor gave me lifts for inside my sneakers and told me to take my good shoes to the cobbler to have heel lifts put on them. I have no pain or limp during the day unless I am carrying anything, only at night. I am stiff when I sit on the couch but compared to the pain previously...it doesn't compare. I feel very fortunate that there is a good surgery out there that took that pain away. Thanks for the good things in life. Good luck to you all.
