    I recently had total hip replacement surgery. However, I dealt with a fractured femur (undiagnosed) from Early February until mid-May, during which I had excruciating pain 24/7 in the 8-10 range. I had the replacement surgery late May.

    Now, I am totally healed from the surgery, the implant has fused with with my pelvis and my femur perfectly. However, I am experiencing continued weakness in my affected hip/leg (eg. not being able to support my full weight on that leg alone) due from 5+ months of underuse.

    Does anyone have any suggestions for strengthening one hip/leg only?

    I am planning on asking my surgeon for permission (required by insurance) to see a physical therapist, but thought I would ask my fellow RJ members.
