Had hip replacement on left side on July26,2001. The first 2-3 days were exactly fun, but I did survive it all.Was feeling pretty good except for getting tired over doing little things. That bothered me some. I'm 49 years old, pretty athletic, ride my jetskis, did play racquetball( but not for the last 2 years), so I'm in pretty active shape. My question: How long before I quit being tired doing little things? When I do go and and down the stairs a lot my toes on up to my hip swells up. I thought the more activity I did the better? I had to call my doctor yesterday to ask why. They informed me I was over doing it. No more stairs for awhile and to slow down. They say for about 2-4 more weeks? Does that sound right to you guys? My e-mail addresses are as follows: rayyne_1999@yahoo.com OR lynnhudson@webtv.net. Thanks for all and any info you might give me. I'm hoping in a year I will be close to how I was before this whole thing took over my life.....Raina
