In brief: Do what body tells u

It is hard for doctors to tell you what easy tasks you could or could not do.
..Your body would be your guide... Little pain, no pain, how high, how many steps...What is your tolerance? What do you mean by stiff hip..Is it arthritis, how bad is the arthritis....? Are you on medications...Tylenol... Motrin... How old...? Is there a room for surgery..? Consult your doctor and orthopedic surgeon.
