June, 2011 I had a hip replacement due to
Arthritis. 6 weeks later due to a fall I dislocated my hip. I wore a brace, but removed it to shower. A simple movement caused it to dislocate again 2 weeks later. Co ti Jed to wear brace for 8weeks, and have just started to remove it at a slow pace, as I am fearful. I find weakness and pain. would Physical Therapy help, or should I do simple exercises?

HiWelcome to DoctorSpring.Your concern seems to be unique and a decision has to be made at individual level. Physical Therapy and exercises without supervision may do more harm than good.Your doctor would be the best person to suggest. Kindly get in touch with your doctor .Thank you
