In early October I had a total hip arthroplasty on my right hip. When I started physical therapy the next week, I came in using a walker for mobility. After about 2 weeks of therapy, I no longer needed the walker and went to using a cane. About another week later, I was walking without the cane. I can now walk up short flights of stairs without assistance. I feel like I am ready to do before with minimal pain or assistance. I can do things in the house and the yard with little to no problem.
