Hi: So happy you joined the hip replacement team. My surgery was done on 9/12--a total left hip replacement. I hope you will ask questions; we are here for you. And, start those exercises now. I did them 6 week before my surgery. When my surgeon examined me, 2 week after surgery, he could not believe how limber & flexible I was. Also, I started walking with a cane 9 days after surgery. Two weeks after surgery, no cane 50% of the time.
Since you are having both hips done, please start your exercises. If you do not know them yet, you can find them on the web. It honestly makes a big difference.
Welcome to the Hip Replacement Before and After team! Has yours been "installed" yet? I'm 1.5 years out. Got a chuckle out of the picture of the hamburger joint next to the Weight Watchers. Reminded me of the covers on most magazines "Drop 30# by (fill in the blank) plus amazing recipes to cook for your family. What a life! 1737 days ago
