I'm 5 weeks post op left side THR. It is my 2nd thr so sort of knew the routine.
Anyway I forgot that you had to massage the scar with E45, at least nobody at the joint school and in the hospital mentioned it until I went for my first physio.
My friend is a beauty therapist and has let me borrow her massager. It is fab and has done a wonderful job on the thick scar tissue and has helped with the pain and walking. I use it bare on the skin. pressing very hard and then use the E45 afterwards.
So I would advise any one who's having hip replacement to use one.
All the best, Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year xx
