FAQ
A replacement hip is an important step toward improved health and an active life.  But the period after the surgery has unique health risks that require you take special steps. Avoiding post-surgery risks is key to recovering as quickly as possible.  The most immediate health risk comes with the blood clots that can develop after surgery. These form because when a person is lying down for long periods of time, the anticoagulant substances in the blood cannot circulate as effectively as they usually would. The clots can become stuck in veins in the hip or leg area, causing swelling and strange sensations like tingling or numbness.  The clots can migrate to the heart, lungs or brain, where they can be fatal. Be sure to take any anticoagulant medicines you are prescribed and alert your doctor if you see signs of a clot.                                                  
Another issue to consider is wound care. You will be prescribed antibiotics and given instructions on washing the wound, changing dressings and when it is safe to shower.  Be sure to follow them.  Localized swelling, redness and leaking fluid can all be signs of infection, so let your doctor know if you see them.  It’s important to be as active as possible as soon as possible, both the prevent clots and to get your body used to walking on the new hip.  To do this, make sure your house is free from ground-level items you might trip over, since a fall could be painful and cause dislocation.  Avoid crossing your legs above the knee and raising the knee above hip level.  If it is painful to walk around with a cane or walker, let your doctor know; you may need to adjust the dosage of your pain medication.                                            
A healthy diet is key, since your body needs nutrients to heal.  Stick to a nutrient-dense whole foods diet including fruits and vegetables, meat, fish and eggs as much as possible.  To get enough protein, include some with every meal, in the form of meat, eggs, nuts or tofu. If your medications are reducing your appetite, try eating multiple small meals or drinking a smoothie in place of a meal. Collagen is a form of protein used to repair body tissue, so consuming it in your diet can speed healing; it’s found in bone broth and gelatin.
In the months after your hip replacement you should ideally begin or resume an exercise program; choose something low or moderate impact like walking, swimming our doubles tennis.  You should also be aware that stress and anxiety may come with this life change.  Consider finding others who have undergone a hip replacement whom you can talk to about your fears and worries, either in person, or through an online forum.
