FAQ



The goal of hip surgery is decreased pain and increased mobility. But before that goal can be achieved, the patient must undergo a period of even more pain and less activity, as their surgical incisions heal. Following proper steps during this time will speed healing and prevent complications.  Recovery begins in the hospital, where the patient will likely spend a few days. During this period you will be on narcotic painkillers and mostly confined to bed.  You will be released after meeting certain goals: Being able to eat, drink, go to the bathroom and walk with a cane or walker. This is important since the patient will need to be able to do this outside of the hospital.                                                                                                                          
Once out of the hospital, the patient will continue to take painkillers for some time and will be given a walker, cane or other device with which to get around.  You will need to make sure your home is set up appropriately, with clear paths to get around and lack of throw rugs and other objects on the floor you could slip or trip on.  You will likely also need another person around to assist you, at least for the first few days.  During recovery, it is important to avoid the danger of a blood clot that can occur from inactivity.  Treatments include taking aspirin and prescription blood thinners, and wearing compression stockings. Elevating your leg may help prevent leg swelling, but if you experience sudden swelling or symptoms like tingling or numbness, see a doctor immediately, since this could be a sign of blood clots. They can be fatal if they become lodged near the brain, lungs or heart.                                                                            
Wound care is another key issue in the weeks after surgery.  Follow your doctor’s instructions on when to clean the wound, change dressings and bathe. Take all your medications as directed, including antibiotics.  Infection is a real danger, so notify your doctor if you notice redness, swelling, or fluid coming out of the wound.  In general, it is best to be as active as possible, without overdoing it. Move around when you can do so without significant pain.
When to return to normal activities will depend on your healing process and doctor’s advice. Depending on what work you do, it may be weeks before you can return to work. Your doctor can help you determine when it is safe to return to work, driving and sexual activity.
