10 weeks post. On vacation walking 7-9 miles aday (wdw) my hip sockets or what I think is what is sore. Do you loose anything from joints to make it sore.

Walking 7-9 miles is great. The joint pain could be from your changing weight distribution - your centre of gravity changes as you lose weight. (I found myself slouching as I lost weight.) Could also be additional strain on joints that have already been stressed from carrying your weight over the years. Walking, though less hard on the joints then say running, still causes jarring to joints. It’s like getting sore muscles when you first start exercising or start a new exercise program. Were you very active in the years before your surgery? Were you fitted for your walking shoes? Old shoes, non supportive or badly fitting shoes can cause joint & muscle pain. Of course I don’t know your history so these are just suggestions.

Congrats on your surgery. Enjoy your vacation.

Hey!

I haven't been walking quite as much as you....but I was noticing my hips were hurting, which I thought was weird. I did come across this article....interesting read! Hope it helps.

I haven't had surgery yet, but about 6 months ago I got a treadmill and I went from being sedentary throughout the whole pandemic to using the treadmill every day for more than an hour every day, usually at an incline. I got bursitis in one hip, which is just an overuse injury. It could be what @Arabesque said, but if you went from not walking too much to doing 7-9 miles every day in a short period of time, it could be just overuse. Also, like @Arabesque said, it could be your shoes. When you lose weight, your feet can shrink and that can make your shoes too loose. I hope you can find a solution! There are good videos on how to stretch hip muscles, you can try that too.

Excess weight puts a huge amount stress on joints and also changes your body mechanics and how you move. Most people are much less flexible at a higher weight and also have gait issues that put much more stress/uneven wear on the body. I’m down 50lbs and already feel so much better joint wise.

      New here just looking around. Hopefully if I have any questions this will be a good place to come for answers. I finally was able to get in to see a doctor about having a surgery and everything has been set up to get the ball rolling. Lord willing it will be able to happen in 2021. I spent to many years denying I needed help and I've just yoyoed every year, I want to be around for my daughters.
