My right THR occurred on 9/14/99. Today(12/23/99), I still walk with a bad limp after a moderate exercise program (stationary bike 35 miles per week). My right leg feels longer than my left and I walk with a bounce. I would appreciate any advise from similar experiences. Also, I still can't tie my right shoe. My Doctor tells me this will be ok with some more time. However, I'm not convinced because my improvement has not changed for the past month.In other words,My flexibility and walking has not improved since about Dec 1. I plan to contact a PT after Xmas. Thanks for any thoughts you might have to offer.
