Hi there!

The level of activity and the symptoms are not particularly abnormal though at 9 weeks post-op a slightly better mobility may be expected. I would suggest considering a review with your treating orthopedician and possibly seeing a physiotherapist, to help improve the muscles strength, movement and weight bearing.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
