Oh love, it’ll get better! Don’t compare yourself to someone else, we all have different bodies and different reactions to pain. I found the first 5 days pretty gruesome (and wondered why I’d agreed to have this done when I’d felt ok before the op) but honestly, it’s so worth it. I had my L THR just over 3 years ago and at 70 I’m still running and walking 30 miles a week and feel brilliant. It’ll be fine, just take the pain relief and wait to feel better.
