Yesterday I had my THR done aged 35. (My previous posts are linked below).
I have one key concern after the surgery and desperately seeking insight / guidance. My left (operated hip) was half an inch longer Pre op. Post op when first standing on the walker the difference seems even larger. Is this a fundamental surgery error or likely a function of the swelling/ body reaction to tilt / something else.
I can’t imagine given the tools at the disposal of the surgeon there is any room for error?! Is this a common issue/ concern with others and does it correct over time?
also how long should I expect to be on crutches for?!
Thanks in advance
