My hip was deteriorating very quickly and I was at a point where I could no longer even
sleep at night due to the pain.

It is now 4 weeks since the hip replacement and I marvel at how well the recovery has gone. I now have to be particularly careful because there is absolutely no pain in the hip and it is easy to forget myself and do something outside of the hip precautions that you provided. My range of motion is much better than it has been for over a year and continues to
improve. Even the incision no longer bothers me unless I put real pressure on it. Walking is no longer a chore – frankly when I came into the hospital for the surgery I could barely walk – even with a cane.

Your staff and the folks at the hospital, including Scott, Luce and Stephanie
were all great – courteous and professional. Thanks to all of them for the
help!

I’d say I was walking without a limp within four or five days – and able to do 0.5 to 1.5 mile walks regularly. I believe Scott’s physio program was of great assistance as well – he was diligent and helped me find the right exercises to speed the recovery along. I never did experience much swelling and there was no bruising to speak of.

While there was some atrophy of the right leg muscles due to under-use for the period prior to surgery, I’m working to recover that strength as quickly as I can. I’m back on my bicycle, my wife and I do regular long walks and continue to progress with the physio. I have signed up for several 75 to 100 mile bike rides later this summer – and plan to begin training this coming week.

Thanks again for all your help!

Kind Regards,
Glenn Gradeen
