Recovering from Hip Replacement Surgery
Most patients facing a total hip replacement surgery are concerned about how long it will take them to recover, and what their recovery might be like. Since every patient’s physical condition is different before the surgery, it can be difficult to predict how their recovery will be. While every patient will recover at his or her own pace, doctors generally expect that most patients will be able to return to work between six to eight weeks if they work in an office environment, or three to four months if they have a physically demanding job. Most patients can return to their daily activities between three to six months following their hip replacement. The average length of recovery for most hip patients is anywhere from six months to one year.
An integral part to a successful recovery process is being able to manage the pain. Most hip replacement patients are educated by their doctors on pain management techniques before they go home from the hospital. If hip patients are beginning to fill pain or discomfort, they are often told to manage the pain by resting, ice the aching hip, elevate their hip and take their pain medications at the times recommended. Physical therapy is also another important aspect of the recovery process. While many patients do perform simple exercises at home to keep their new joint flexible, to build strength and increase their range of motion, it can be beneficial to regularly visit a physical therapist or to participate in an exercise program during recovery. It usually takes about eight months to a year for a hip patient to regain normal range of motion in the new artificial hip joint.
Complications can arise following any surgery, and they may occur with hip replacement surgery, as well. Complications that can come up during recovery may include blood clots, dislocation, infection, fracture, allergic reactions, squeaky hip joints, implant misalignment or loosening. Hip replacement surgery is a complex surgery, and despite this, the procedure has a 98 percent success rate. Complications aren’t very common, but there can be risks, as with any medical procedure. A patient’s emotional health is important during recovery from hip replacement surgery. It can be very common for a patient to feel despair, anger or helplessness when feeling that he or she isn’t making any progress. This is typically a short-lived feeling. By being surrounded by supportive family, friends and even other hip patients, it makes a world of difference during a patient’s recovery process.
