FAQ


The way in which hip replacements work is fairly simple: Damaged bone and cartilage that is causing pain and stiffness is replaced by synthetic parts.  Because they do not contain nerves, it is no longer painful to move the joint, and because they are perfectly smooth, the hip joint can move without excess friction.  However, there are some details to remember as you recover from this life-changing surgery. Taking proper care of your new joint can help you heal and return to normal life faster.  The dos and don’ts of replacement hip care begin the day you wake up from surgery. It’s important to begin moving around and walking with a walker or cane as soon as possible, since this will help prevent blood clots and help you get used to walking with your new hip. This may be uncomfortable but should not be very painful; if your pain is not well managed by the medicines you are receiving, be sure to let your doctor know.                                                                                                                                                  
Before going home, make sure your home is prepared.  You should have a clear path to walk to and from all the places you will be going, and the floor should be clear of area rugs and other items you might trip over.  You should also have someone around to help you with daily tasks for the first weeks after the surgery; if you live alone, arrange to have someone stay with you if possible.  Continue to walk and move around as much as possible, but not so much that you are in pain or become exhausted. Take all your medications as prescribed, and alert your doctor if your wound shows signs of infection, such as redness and leaking fluids.  you should also be alert to the signs of a blood clot lodged in the leg or hip area. These include swelling, tingling, and change in skin color.                                                                                                              
Your new hip is especially prone to dislocation in the weeks and months after surgery, when the body’s tissues have not had time to grow around it and anchor it more firmly. There are certain positions you must avoid. Do not cross your legs above the knee for the first 8 weeks after surgery. Do not raise the knee above hip level or lean forward while you are sitting down, and if you are kneeling, place the knee of your “bad’ hip on the floor.  An exercise program is a good idea, but there are types of exercise to seek about and types to avoid.  The best exercise is swimming; walking, biking and doubles tennis are also safe.  High-impact exercise like running and singles tennis can speed up wear, while skiing and horseback riding increase the risk of dislocation.
