Possibly normal: Sioreness may last that long. It is reassuring that you are able to walk. Check your surgeon to make sure.

Yes but: May have some tendon soreness in the muscles about the hip that can be a long standing nuisance and can be resolved with prolotherapy. Visit www.Getprol.Com or www.Aaomed.Org for information and a doctor to help you.
