I had my anterior THR on Friday, and came home Saturday morning. No pain – didn’t take anything stronger than Tylenol. I feel great except for one thing – post-surgery, the leg with my new hip is about an INCH longer than my right hip! The physical therapist and nurses noticed it, too. I’m walking unassisted, but with a marked limp.
I’m freaking out! I only did the surgery so that I could return to running, and now I’m really worried. There is some mild arthritis in my other hip, so some have speculated that if I replace that one, I’ll even out. But I’m very worried.
Has anyone else had this happen?
