Congrats on making the decision to do the hip. I’m in week 9 and very happy. I’m able to use elliptical and stationary bike @ 90% of what I could before.

I guess what I wish I had done is the prep exercises my doc recommended prior to the surgery. I expect that would have helped. I worked out regularly up until the day before surgery (elliptical, weights) but didn’t do the hip flexor exercises. After surgery, I wasn’t good with icing, so I’d recommend doing that after surgery.

I didn’t get a toilet seat extender, couldn’t do it. But I’d say, I would have benefited from it.

Best of luck and give us an update.
