Six weeks post hip replacement. Things seem to be going well. Walking 1.5 miles per day back at work ext.
6-week x-ray showed some Heterotopic Ossification. I'm concerned about it.

The surgeon put me on Indomethacin for a month and told me to stretch, stretch and stretch. Will get another x-ray in 30 days.

Has this ever happen to anyone. Is it a serious concern? I know if it gets worse they will have to surgically remove. I want to short board again and this is freaking me out.

no experience with hips, but good luck from the disabled list.
