Great news, bud.
If your doc is giving you "as tolerated" advice, he is telling you to listen to your hip, not to that vestigial part of the brain that is, and will forever remain, 18 years old.
You know, I have heard of people spending hundreds or more on footbeds, binding adjustments and boots tweaks just to get into proper mechanical balance.
But even you would agree that having a hip revision procedure to get into proper alignment is just a wee bit over the top.
I assume you are just kidding. Obviously, This is not why you have FAI surgery.Ironically, it won't be alignment that may improve but rather the range of flexation allowing the leg to stay straight during flexation and not jam and cause the femur to swerve out to the outside. In a stance in boots or regular shoes, I am pretty much correct. Its only during a deeper flex (skiing, running, biking hiking up hills) does the femur jam and have to move to the outside. FAI creates the proper room in the joint allowing proper movement. Part of the procedure it to repair/ debride torn cartilage. I better get something good out of this!
as far as over loading; I really don't have any need to go anywhere so I have been housebound; so I really don't need to be walking on it other than around the house to/from kitchen and bed and bathroom. I found out that they need to add that sitting at a desk is not so good! Really sore today so staying in bed.
