THR pain after 8 weeks

I am a 50 yr old man that had THR on my left hip in February 2012 and am experiencing pain in my thigh area above my knee. I know it has only been 8 weeks but wanted to know if this is normal. I have been going to the gym and believe I may have been over working that leg and was told to rest for a week by PT. I have pain while walking and a lot the next day after going to gym to work out hip or swim. Any information would ease my mind to know this is part of the healing process. Thanks

I'm a practicing ortho doc in Chicago. I'll just add a few points since I'm not familar with your case. I could be normal however I would just recommend regular followup with your surgeon to ensure everything looks ok with your leg and on xray. I understand this doesn't really answer your question directly however ask your surgeon!! If your concerned -- he should be concerned.
