I'm new here and haven't quite figured out how to search for relevant info. Have just had hip replacement last week after 30 years of JIA. Every hip replacement story I come across seems to have a positive outcome but a week into this im regretting it and having a tough time. My main worries are a clunking feeling in the new hip and feeling very stiff and seized up so I'm walking on crutches with my bottom sticking out and feels strange to try to straighten up. Is the clunking a sign of doing too much / too little? (Seems to lessen with rest) and should I be forcing myself to walk upright or just go with more comfortable scrunched up walking and worry about straightening up in future once healed up better? Any advice would really be appreciated. I'm also terrified of dislocation however rare it is.
